Bet on Florida (-4) Because…

Statistically, the Florida Gators have the second-best defense in the nation. The Gators allow 239.9 yards per game. That ranks second in college football. Florida allows 105.6 rushing yards per game while giving up 134.3 passing yards per game. Opponents average 11.7 points per game versus Florida. That also ranks second in college football.  

Bet on Arkansas (+4) Because…

QB Austin Allen is listed as probable. Allen is the reason that the Razorbacks average close to 417 yards per game of offense. He’s the reason why Arkansas scores 31 points per game. Without Allen on the field, Arkansas’ offense almost stands still. They need Allen to have any shot of breaking the Gators’ D.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

Yes, Allen got hurt in Arkansas’ last game. But, that doesn’t explain the Razorbacks giving up 56 points to the Auburn Tigers, does it? Arkansas’ defense isn’t nearly as capable this season as it was last season. The Razorbacks prefer to outscore teams in games. That’s why they allow 428 yards and over 30 points per game on average.

Florida is a complete team. While the defense is the second best in the nation, the offense averages close to 400 yards. It scores around 30 points per game. Against Arkansas’ D, Florida should be even better.The Gators have lost only one game this season. That was to Tennessee. At halftime, Florida was up 21 to 3. They should have won that game. Arkansas doesn’t have nearly the skill players that Tennessee has.

Florida is 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings between these two. I don’t see anything changing in this battle. I think Florida stares at least a 10-point win in this one, and it could be much worse for Arkansas and their fans.

My final score prediction is Florida 27, Arkansas 17.
