Florida vs. Alabama Prediction

Maybe I’m crazy, but I’m going to side with the over here. I know it’s a conference tournament game and Alabama may have some rust after the long layoff, but these are two of the most dynamic and efficient offenses in the country and both have some serious issues on the defensive end of the floor as well. This has all of the makings of one of the more exciting conference tournament games and I think we see some fireworks here. Give me the over.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
