The Vanderbilt Commodores (9-15, 1-10 CONF) and the Florida Gators (15-9, 7-4 CONF) will meet on Saturday, February 15th for an SEC matchup at the Exactech Arena in Gainesville, FL. The game will be played at 8:00 PM eastern time. 

Vanderbilt has been abysmal all season long, as after the Commodores won their first conference game of the season over LSU, they dropped back-to-back games. With a 1-10 record in the SEC, Vanderbilt is just looking to get this season over with and try to move on to the 2020-21 season. Florida has been a tad underwhelming this season, as remember, the Gators were ranked #4 heading into the season. In their last game, Florida managed to take care of business on the road at Texas A&M in a 78-61 win. They need to keep beefing up their resume in order to guarantee a spot in the Big Dance.

Vanderbilt currently owns a -2.0 point differential this season, as they have scored 72.3 points per game and have allowed 74.3 points per game to the opposition. Vanderbilt is led by G Saben Lee in scoring, as he averages 17.0 points per game. Vanderbilt also earns 32.8 rebounds, 11.9 assists, 3.7 blocks, and 7.0 steals per game. 

Florida is a defensive-minded team, that has struggled to score consistently all season. Florida scores 72.3 points per game on 43% FG shooting. The Gators allow 66.8 points to the opposition, which gives them a +5.5 point differential so far this season. The Gators also earn 36.0 rebounds, 11.6 assists, 3.8 blocks, and 5.9 steals per game. 

Vanderbilt is 11-12-1 ATS this season and 4-6 ATS in their last ten games. Vanderbilt is also 4-2 ATS on the road this season. Florida is 9-15 ATS this season and 4-6 ATS in their last ten games. Florida is also 3-8 ATS at home so far this season.

Florida has not played the way they should. With their recruiting class, this team should be ranked and have a shot at a title. Unfortunately, it has not been that way, and Florida has played extremely inconsistent basketball. I think this is too many points to lay with a Florida team that has not wowed anyone quite yet. I will take Vanderbilt plus the points, but I think Florida should win outright by single digits.
