LSU Preview

The LSU Tigers are 12-11 (4-6) this year after they lost to Alabama by a score of 109-92 in their last game. LSU only trailed 49-46 at the half, but they allowed 60 points in the second half in the loss. The Tigers shot 55% from the field and were -12 in rebounding margin in the game. LSU lost to Tennessee by a score of 88-68 in the game prior to Alabama, but did beat Arkansas before that. The Tigers are scoring 77.7 points per game with 36.1 rebounds per game and 12.3 assists per game, while allowing 74.5 points against per game this year. Jalen Cook is averaging 15.9 points per game, 3.9 rebounds per game, and 2.8 assists per game. LSU is shooting 46% from the field, 72.6% on free throws, and 35% on three pointers this season. LSU will face South Carolina and Kentucky after this game.

Florida Preview

The Florida Gators are 16-7 (6-4) this season after they defeated Auburn by a score of 81-65 in their last game. Florida led 42-26 at halftime and they were able to score 39 second half points in the win. The Gators shot 40.3% from the field and made 20 free throws in the game. Florida lost to Texas A&M by a score of 67-66 in the game prior to Auburn, but they did win the previous four games. The Gators are scoring 84.7 points per game with 44.4 rebounds per game and 15.3 assists per game, while giving up 76.5 points against per game this season. Walter Clayton Jr. is averaging 16 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game. Florida is shooting 45.3% from the field, 69.1% on free throws, and 33.7% on three pointers this year. 

LSU vs Florida Betting Prediction

LSU comes into this game after losing five of their last six games and they have allowed 109, 88, and 109 points in their last three losses. Florida is one of the hottest teams in the country right now and they just beat Auburn by 16 points in their last game. Neither team is very good defensively in this matchup, but I just don’t see how LSU keeps this game close. Florida is scoring 84.7 points per game and they are one of the better rebounding teams in the country. Take Florida to win big at home.
