Why You Should Bet on Kentucky at +17 Because…
Kentucky’s offense can put up points. The Wildcats were very good offensively in their loss to Southern Miss. They scored 35 points. They racked up 443 total yards. Quarterback Drew Barker threw for 323 yards. He threw 4 touchdown passes. If Kentucky can put up a few points, they could cover the +16.5-point spread.
Why You Should Bet on Florida at -17 Because…
Florida’s defense played like one of the best defensive units in the nation versus UMass. The Gators held the Minutemen to 187 total yards. They stopped UMass’s rushing attack in its tracks. The Minutemen gained 46 yards from 35 carries. That’s a 1.3 per carry average. Florida held UMass’s QB to 9 out of 17 for 141 yards.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Sure, Florida’s offense is bad. But, man, the defense is spectacular! I think that Florida wins the game. But, let’s be honest, does it make sense to ever give a team that this Florida Gators’ squad faces 16.5 points? Ever?
I think that the spread goes lower, probably by up to 2 to 2.5 points, before kick-off. To me, it’s not a question of Florida shutting down Kentucky’s offense. I think that the Gators will do that. The big question is whether or not Florida’s offense can produce enough points to cover the spread.
Versus UMass, Florida only managed 363 total yards. The Gators only rushed for 3.7 yards per carry. I have to believe that Kentucky has a better defense than UMass has. Florida win’s the game. They don’t come close to covering the spread.
