The uncharted territory will not be as relevant on Saturday as the visiting Florida Gators go out to boss around Missouri Tigers at the Memorial Stadium in Columbia to kick things off in week 12 of college football.

The Gators are tagged as seven-point favorites entering the match given that they are at the number 2 spot in the SEC East boasting an outstanding 8-2 record in the season, and just trailing the Georgia Bulldogs by a hairline in conference play at 5-2.

Bookmakers must be hyped about the Gators’ winning ways as they projected a 72 percent chance of a spoiled home party which is good for 1.39 (-259) game-winner price for the guests.

The hosts, meanwhile, are marked at 3.31 (+231) to win. To overcome this set odds, the Tigers must play with a little more sense of urgency, especially that they are now in a must-win situation at 5th position.

Total lines are set at 48 points with the Overs marked at 1.95 (-105) and the Unders at 1.87 (-115). Based on the trend in the total line winning selection from Missouri’s previous outings, the Unders have been standing out. In the Tigers’ last eight games, the total line went UNDER seven times, and four times in the last five.

In addition to that, the Gators have been playing top-notch defense to date. In their game against Vanderbilt last week, their defensive unit went flat out unforgiving as they kept the latter scoreless to win 56-0. With that said, going UNDER in this match should be a no brainer.

One key player to watch is Florida’s Kyle Trask. The quarterbacking stalwart is carving out solid numbers so far in the season with a total of 2011 passing yards at an average of 8.4 per attempt, a total of 160 completed passes at 66.9 percent rate, 19 passing touchdowns and six interceptions thrown.


Momentum will be on the side of the Florida Gators as they try to keep the trailing Georgia Bulldogs at bay in the win-loss ladder. The Missouri Tigers’ defense will falter. There is simply no stopping the Gators’ offensive unit on their tracks. Easy win for the visitors, 31-7.
