LSU Vs Florida Betting Prediction

These are two elite offensive teams and both teams are going to have no issue running up the score here. Florida is averaging 84.7 points while LSU is averaging 77.7 points. I really don’t trust either of these defenses, and that is going to be the difference here. This is a game where both teams could go over 85 points and it wouldn’t be all that shocking. Back the over to cash here.
