9 PM EST Florida is in Knoxville to take on the Volunteers of Tennessee. The oddsmakers currently have Tennessee -4 points and the total is resting at 137 points.

This is a ranked Tennessee teams playing a non-ranked Florida team. Florida is not quite having the seasons of yesteryear when they would routinely finish seasons with 20 or 25 wins. But they are still scrappy.

Tennessee is 19-7 SU and 14-10 ATS. Theyscore 75 PPG and allow 67. They are coming off a loss to Georgia four days ago and before that beat SCAR.

Florida is 17-10 SU. They are 13-14 ATS. They score 77 and allows 70. They are currently on a two game losing skid, having just lost to Georgia and Vandy.

Florida and Tennessee matchup well. They score about the same and win by about the same differential (7 points each game). When they last played, 13 months ago, Florida beat tennessee by 13 points. But that was last year. In this game Tennessee is favored by a couple of buckets and has the better position.

Some stats and trends:
Florida is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games
Tennessee is 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games at home
Tennessee is just 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games when playing Florida. They have a tough time with the Gators. Call it mental, call it what you will.

I like Florida +4 in this game. All signs point to a chance for Florida to cover and may possibly win this game straight up. You can bet it will be another SEC dogfight and teams are currently jockeying for position in the SEC tournament.
