Bet The Kentucky Wildcats at +17 Because…
Kentucky was on the wrong end of a 44-35 loss against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles while failing to cover the spread as a 3.5-point favorite.
Quarterback Drew Barker completed 15 of 24 passes for 323 yards with four touchdowns and one pick, but the Wildcats were shut out in the second half while giving up three third quarter touchdowns.
Bet The Florida Gators at -17 Because…
Young quarterback Luke Del Rio threw two touchdown passes in his first career start to lead Florida to a solid, but not overwhelming 24-7 win over UMass on Saturday night.
"We have expectations every game," Del Rio said. "We obviously want to score more points, but we got the win. That’s the most important thing."
Del Rio completed 29 of 44 passes for 256 yards despite failing to cover the spread as insane 34.5-point favorites.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
I’m going to get right to the point by saying that I like Kentucky to keep the final score inside two touchdowns to cover the college football betting line.
I know Kentucky is 1-8 ATS in its last 9 games, but the Wildcats have covered the spread in each of the last two meetings while not losing by more than six points, including last season’s narrow 14-9 home loss.
Florida is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games and just doesn’t look very good in several areas, like blocking!
The Gators win, but the Wildcats cover!
