Georgia at Florida: Odds, betting lines and picks
Florida 76, Georgia 70
The Gators (-500) should win this one rather handily, but it’s not wise to risk five times the return on investment. The Bulldogs are +375.
Against the Spread (ATS)
The Gators (-9.5, -110) have been having some trouble against the spread lately, although they are getting it done in the win-loss column. As such, roll with GEORGIA (+9.5, -110) catching the points. Plus, the road team is 6-1 ATS in the previous seven meetings, which also is a trend that points to UGA.
OVER 142 (-110) is worth a light, light play, as it might be a sweat shop all evening long. If this game goes Over, it likely won’t be until the final minute. The Over is 4-1 in UGA’s past five against teams with a winning percentage over .600, 12-4 in Florida’s past 16 overall, and 8-2 in Florida’s past 10 after a straight-up win.
