Betting on the Gators?

It Head Coach Dan Mullen’s second year at the helm, having had a successful first term in 2018 that got the Gators to the Peach Bowl. The Gators are 5-0 ATS in their last five non-conference games and 8-3 overall in their previous eleven.

These two teams don’t like each other, and the rivalry is fierce, but the Gators are the big favorites this year so expect them to go out and try to crush the Hurricanes. Florida has to win this game.

The Gators are in the limelight and have the talent and expectations to compete in the SEC East and potentially beat Georgia for the crown. It's Florida’s shot at showing that they’re here to win so beating the Hurricanes is a good start at things.

Betting on the Hurricanes?

The Gators might be the favorites, but the Hurricanes have history on their side, beating Florida 21-16 in 2013 and going on a 7-1 run from the 2004 Peach Bowl.

Granted, Florida is the better team this year, but Miami has a great defensive front seven that should be able to hold up and get into the backfield to wreak some havoc.

Quarterback Jarren Williams will face problems with the Gators’ defense though, and most of the Hurricanes drives will likely turn out empty.
