The Kentucky Wildcats will play the Florida Gators in a SEC game at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida.

The Kentucky Wildcats are 1-0 this season after beating Miami (Ohio) by a score of 37-13 in their first game. Kentucky struggled to pull away in the first half, but was able to outscore Miami (Ohio) 24-3 in the second half. Will Levis threw for 303 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception for the Wildcats. Kavosiey Smoke rushed for 32 yards, while Tayvion Robinson caught six passes for 136 yards in the Kentucky win. The Kentucky defense allowed 290 yards and forced one turnover in the game.

The Florida Gators are 1-0 this year after defeating Utah by a score of 29-26 in Week 1. This was a back and forth game until Florida scored with 1:25 to take the lead. Utah drove down the field but threw an interception in the end zone. Anthony Richardson threw for 168 yards and added 106 yards and three touchdowns on the ground for the Gators. Montrell Johnson Jr. rushed for 75 yards and one touchdown, while Ricky Pearsall caught four passes for 67 yards for Florida. The Florida defense allowed 446 yards (230 yards rushing) and forced one turnover in the win.

Kentucky is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 September games. The under is 15-6 in Kentucky’s last 21 road games. Florida is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 September games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The under is 5-2 in Florida’s last 7 home games. The home team is 4-1-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

Florida had one of the biggest wins in Week 1 after defeating Utah at home. Anthony Richardson made play after play for the Gators and is going to give defenses trouble all year. Kentucky started slow, but played a very good second half in their win. Florida is at risk of a let down in this game and I expect Kentucky to move the ball well. I like Kentucky to keep it close here.
