Monday, December, 4th 2017 @ 9:00 pm in Exactech Arena on ESPN 2

Line & Odds:Florida -9 Over/Under: 163


The Florida State Seminoles make their way to Gainesville to take on their in-state rival the Florida Gators in this clash of two teams with high expectations on the year.

The Florida State Seminoles are undefeated through the year and have a big win against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in the BIG TEN / ACC CHALLENGE. This game against the Florida Gators is their first game against a ranked opponent, and it comes against the school’s biggest rival. The Seminoles are 22nd in points scored per game with an average of 88.8 points per game. They are also top 25 in assists coming in at 19th with an average of 18.7 assists per game. Florida State is led by Junior guard Terance Mann who leads the team in points per game with an average of 15.3 points per game and is second in rebounds. Another player who has been producing for the Florida Seminoles is guard CJ Walker, in their victory over Rutgers, Walker had 24 points, three assists, and four steals. The sophomore from Indianapolis also had a free throw percentage of .909 against the Scarlet Knights. Overall the Florida State Seminoles are performing well this season; however, they have yet to face a team like the Florida Gators.

The Florida Gators are coming off a hard loss against No. 1 Duke in the PK80 MOTION CHALLENGE. They are the only team that came within 3 points of beating Duke and have already beaten No. 17 Gonzaga in a 111-105 shootout that went to double overtime. The Florida Gators are ranked 7th in the AP college basketball rankings and is known for their offensive prowess. They are the top team in college basketball in scoring averaging 99.5 points per game. They’re led by 6-4 point guard Jalen Hudson who leads the team in scoring with an average of 21.7 points per game. Hudson is considered to be a lottery pick in next year’s NBA draft and will be the key to the Florida Gators season. Another player that will help the Florida Gators this season is their shooting guard Egor Koulechov, he is second in the team in scoring and leads the team in rebounds per game with 7. The Gators rely on outscoring their opponents and with how much firepower they have on the offense that is not a problem until they go against excellent teams.


Gators vs. Seminoles

Florida is 4-6 ATS against Florida State in their last ten games

Florida is 4-2 ATS and Florida State is 5-0 ATS

Florida is 5-0 as the Favorite and Florida State is 0-0 as the Underdog

Both teams are a combined 9-1 over the Total


Usually all betting trends go out the window in rivalry games, however, with how well the Florida Gators are playing this season it is hard to turn a blind eye to their success. The Florida Gators have scored more than 100 points five times this season, where Florida State has only done that once. Florida State has beaten Florida in their last three meetings; however, this is not the same Florida team of those previous meetings. I look for the Florida Gators to take care of business at home and hand the Florida State Seminoles their first loss of the season.

 Pick: Florida Gators -9

The only cheese I’ll ever like. Thank you for everything. Congrats to @GatorsMBK for another memorable season. #InAllKindsOfWeather 😭❤️🐊

Egor you ask for the ball you make the shot. Should've gone to Stone. @GatorsMBK #NCAATournament

It’s still Go Gators 🐊RT @GatorsMBK: #Final from Dallas.


This was a strange, sometimes frustrating, sometimes sad but mostly fun @GatorsMBK season. Saw this team win in person in Portland and Rupp and plenty of times in between. Sad it’s over, but proud @Chiozza11 was a Gator.

No excuse tonight @GatorsMBK . That was ours. Still love ya.
