CBB Preview: (21) Florida Gators are Dogs on the Road at Florida State

FSU Noles


Florida Gators Coming off Duke Loss

The fans at Tucker Center will be treated to a game between the Florida Gators and the Florida State Seminoles when they take their seats on Sunday.

Oddsmakers currently have the Seminoles listed as 2½-point favorites versus the Gators, while the game’s total is sitting at 149.

FSU was a 118-63 winner in their most recent outing at home against the George Washington Colonels. They covered the -26-point spread as favorites. The Seminoles arelooking to claim their third straight win over the 21st-ranked Gators. IF this game is anything like the last two, it will probably come down to the end.

Florida was a 84-74 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Duke Blue Devils. They failed to cover the +7.5-point spread as underdogs. A 10-point loss to a loaded Duke team isnt what you call an embarrassment. How they lost was the issue. There were mental errors such as missed assignments and not blocking out. This was instrumental in leading to points and ill-timed turnovers.
