We don’t like these in-game teasers all that much, but in this case, we think that we have one that is completely correlated in the college football betting world. The Gators and the Volunteers are teams that are on two different planets at the moment in spite of their relatively similar records. The Florida defense has been one of the best and most underappreciated units in the country, while Tennessee has a defense that has been suspect all season long. Sure, the team forced seven turnovers against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, but that clearly wasn’t going to be the same challenge as what it is going to see this week in the Swamp.
We could make the argument that a parlay is the better bet here, but you know how we feel about parlays. They’re lottery tickets and nothing else. In this case, we don’t see the Florida defense giving up all that much in the way of points in this one. The only question that we have is whether QB Jeff Driskel, who turned the ball over a ton in the loss two weeks ago versus the Miami Hurricanes, can maintain control of this offense and ultimately put enough points on the board to win. Covering by 17 or more is tough for this ‘O’, but getting up to just 10 shouldn’t be all that much of a problem when push comes to shove. We like UF by a lot, but we’d feel better with the in-game teaser instead, knowing that there is no way that we see the Vols scoring more than 20 in this one.
Tennessee vs. Florida Pick: Florida -10 w/ Under 53.5
Tennessee @ Florida Score Prediction: Florida 31 – Tennessee 10
