The Vanderbilt Commodores and Florida Gators face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the O’Connell Center.  Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Vanderbilt vs Florida prediction.

Vanderbilt Continues to Lose Games

Vanderbilt has lost two games in a row and most games they don’t look like they really have much of a chance. Vanderbilt scored 64 points against Georgia and they ended up losing by 12 points. Paul Lewis had a strong game putting up 18 points, but he was one of the only bright spots. Vanderbilt on the season is averaging 66.2 points while their defense is giving up 74.3 points per game. This offense just doesn’t have enough talent to really compete with most teams in the SEC This year. 

Can Florida Bounce Back?

Florida made it to overtime against Alabama in the last game, but they couldn’t get the stops in overtime and ended up losing 98-93. Walter Clayton Jr did have a strong game putting up 27 points, eight rebounds, and five assists. The Gators are averaging 85.1 points while their defense is giving up 77.7 points per game. The offense is ranked 7th in the league but in this game it’s going to be about the defense making the stops. Walter Clayton Jr. is averaging 16.8 points while shooting 43.4 percent from the field. In this game I would expect Florida is going to try and really push the pace to try and put the pressure on. 

Vanderbilt vs Florida Betting Prediction

Vanderbilt’s offense hasn’t been good all season and now they face off against a Florida team that has an elite offense. Florida is averaging 85.1 points and they are going ot have no issue running up the score here. Florida scored 98 points in the last game and they are going to get close to 90 points here, This game is going to be a blowout victory for Florida. Back Florida against the spread here.
