Florida Tennessee Preview

AP/Yahoo
Tennessee @ Florida
This game has been the battle of the SEC over the last few years and the Volunteers have won more often than not despite the Gators winning back to back national titles. Florida is struggling coming down the stretch going just 5-5 in their last 10 and needs a win to cement its NCAA status. In their win over Kentucky, Tennessee showed how much it struggles at times when forced to play half court offense consistently. I look for Billy Donovan to slow it down and milk the shot clock. Florida really struggled shooting the ball in their last game, a loss to Miss State, shooting just 36%. If the Gators try to run with Tennessee they don't have much of a chance. I like Tennessee to win this one in Gainesville.
Prediction: Tennessee

Tennessee Florida line
This one will be tight with it being in Gainesville. I think the Volunteers win this one 6 to 7 times out of 10. I put the line anywhere from -170 to -200.

Season: 64-19 (77%)
SEC: 31-8 (79%)
