The LSU Tigers ended their 2018-19 season atop the Southeastern Conference men’s basketball standings. However, after so much awful media coverage has surrounded the team recently, look for the Tigers to really look to get back onto the floor while continuing their outstanding play.
The Florida Gators enter this matchup as the ninth seed within the SEC. And after a tight first half versus the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Gators were able to pull away late in the second half while outscoring Arkansas by 14 points en route to a first-round victory.
In their last meeting versus the Tigers, Florida was able to keep the game close and manageable due to their ability to hunker down on the defensive end. For the game, LSU shot only 43% from the floor while Florida shot a tad under 45% as a team.
Waters along with Smart led the Tigers in scoring with 19 and 15 points, respectively, in defeat. Nonetheless, Jalen Hudson led the team with 33 points as he went 4-7 from long-range in which to spearhead the Gators offensive attack.
Leading scorer on the season for the Gators in Kevaughn Allen (12 ppg) had a forgettable night in going just 1-6 from the floor wide ending with four points versus the Tigers. In their first round matchup, Alan went 6-14 along with 3-7 from long-range versus the Arkansas Razorbacks as he posted 17 points.
Nonetheless, Keyontae Johnson lead the scoring charge in this contest in pouring in 20 points while going 3-5 from long range. Furthermore, Johnson also pulled down 12 rebounds in the contest as the forward is averaging 49% shooting from the floor this season.
In all, the Tigers are winners of nine of their last 10 games, overall. Their offense is one of the best in the nation as the team is averaging 81 points per game on 48% shooting from the floor.
Five feet, 11 inch guard in Tremont Waters has led the team in scoring throughout the season with 15 points per game on 43% shooting from the floor. On the other hand, 6ft 4in guard in Skylar Mays averages 14 points per outing while also shooting 43% for the Tigers, as well.
Naz Reid (13 ppg, 7 rebs) along with Javonte Smart (11 ppg) are also regular contributors on the offensive end for LSU this season. And while Smart has really increased his scoring output in recent outings, he remains to be questionable for this matchup due to personal reasons.
Reed is also questionable as he took a terrible hit to the face in their last matchup versus the Vanderbilt Commodores to end the season. In all, the Tigers will be looking to pull out yet another victory over a Gators squad that they needed overtime to dispose of in their last meeting.

Free Florida Gators vs. LSU Tigers NCAAB Prediction:
The Tigers have certainly had many off the court issues to deal with recently. However, they should be ready to hit the floor after their circus moment as they will be facing a team in the Gators that struggles mightily on offense. And while Florida will bring their defensive intensity versus the Tigers, look for LSU to show and prove in their march to winning the SEC crown by picking up a 71-61 win in the end.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: LSU
The Gators, as stated, will certainly hunker down on defense in this contest much like they did in their last outing versus the Tigers. However, the Tigers have been resilient even when things are not going as planned on the offensive end. With that being the case, look for them to breeze by Florida in the second half en route to a victory.
