4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Florida -14 & Kentucky UNDER Team Total
Florida’s offensive production was promising to see, but of course it was against a weak Charleston Southern squad.
Kentucky did pick up a solid victory at home, but their quarterback play will need to improve quickly against a solid Florida defense who will look to take away the run game from Kentucky and force them to throw it.
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is one of the hardest places to play at and will play a factor in a series where Florida has dominated covering in nine of their last 11 contests at home against Kentucky.
Back the home who should be able to pull away late in the game behind their solid defense and home crowd.
