Florida is 12-17 against the spread this season and 4-6 against the spread in their last ten games. Florida is also 3-7 against the spread on the road so far this season. Georgia is 15-14 against the spread this season and 6-4 against the spread in their last ten games. Georgia is also 9-7 against the spread at home so far this season.
Florida has struggled on the road this season, and I do not think it will get any easier against a surging Georgia team. Georgia can put some serious points on the board, and I think Florida's inconsistent offense may have problems on the road. I will take the home dog in Georgia, as I think they will win this game outright.
