The Georgia Bulldogs come into this game with a 13-8 record overall and coming into this game they have lost two of their last three games. The one win during that stretch came in their last game against Missouri, a game they scored 80 points in. Georgia on the season is averaging 77.8 points while their defense is giving up 78.2 points per game. Georgia is shooting 46.4 percent from the field and 32 percent from behind the three point line. K.D. Johnson has been the best player for Georgia averaging 13.7 points while shooting 43.4 percent from the field and 40.5 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Florida Gators who sit with a 10-6 record overall but they lost two games in a row. One issue for this Florida team is their star player for Keyontae Johnson is out with a heart issue.In the last game against Arkansas, Florida’s offense is averaging 64 points and that wasn’t enough was they lost by 11 points. Florida is shooting 76.7 points per game while their defense is giving up 71.3 points per game.Tre Mann has been the best player for Florida averaging 14.1 points while shooting 64.1 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from behind the three point line.

The over is 15-5-1 in Georgia’s last 21 road games. Georgia is 5-12 against the spread in their last 17 games played on Saturday. Florida is 6-14 against the spread in their last 20 games played on Saturday.
Georgia looked impressive in their last game and I think they are going to find success with their offense again. Look for Georgia to run up the score, and they are going to put pressure on Florida. Back Georgia to come away with a cover of the spread.
