Against The Spread Pick
These are two squads that have been equally poor ATS this season. Both Florida and Tennessee have played out matches to be 12-16 ATS, with neither SEC school offering much for bettors on the season. Florida is 3-6 ATS on the season and 1-3 ATS in their last 10 games when looking at road contests. Tennessee is brutal at home ATS, registering a 5-10 record on the year in games played in Knoxville and a dour 1-3 record in their last 10 games (six of which have been played on the road). In what is basically a pick ’em line we will go with the road team here, but we don’t hold much confidence that the 18-10 Gators will bring their best game with them as this is another of those SEC teams that can’t seen to get out of its own way.
Over Under Pick
In terms of the over/under line these are a pair of teams that trend to the over, albeit only slightly. The Gators are 15-15 on the season and the Vols are 14-13-1 this year in the over/under format. Florida is better away from home than in Gainsville in O/U plays, with them being 5-4 on the road compared to an even 7-7 at home. The countermeasure to that is that Tennessee is just bad at scoring points at home, with their O/U record when on their own floor standing at a lousy 5-9-1 for the over. This isn’t a particularly high total to hit, but these are teams that in their last ten games average just 65.1 ppg (Florida) and 62.7 ppg (Tennessee). Take the under here as no one is lighting up the scoreboard in a tense SEC clash.
