The Florida Gators and the Vanderbilt Commodores meet in college basketball action from the Memorial Gym on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Vanderbilt is listed as a 3.5-point home favorite with a total for this game set at 145.5 points.
For Florida, Colin Castleton is out for the season with a hand injury while Vanderbilt has Lee Dort listed as out with a foot injury.
Vanderbilt’s 88-80 win over Florida back on February 11th, 2023, snapped Florida’s 9-game head-to-head win streak over Vanderbilt.
Florida is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall. Vanderbilt is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 home games.
I’m backing the Commodores here. The Gators performed valiantly against Kentucky, but once again they fell short, and I think the struggles will continue here on the road without Colin Castleton. One player doesn’t make a whole team, but he’s the heart and soul of that Gators group and I just feel like the Commodores are in the perfect buy low spot after their loss to LSU. Give me Vandy here.
