The Gators are ranked #1 in the country and will be a very popular choice this week among gamblers making a college football bet at the online sportsbook.
College football betting has Florida just over a four-touchdown favorite in this game. Many will be looking for the Gators to really whip up on the Vols after what Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin has said and done in the off-season but Florida doesn’t seem to have noticed. “Obviously, we look forward to playing this game at home.” Florida head coach Urban Meyer said, “We’re going to ask our fans to wear blue. Just getting anxious to play the first SEC game in the greatest stadium in college football in front of the best fans. We’re ready to go, and we’re going to have a good week.”
So far this college football betting season the Gators defense has been just as good as their offense. The key to this college football betting matchup will be Florida’s ability to stop the run. “It’s no secret what they’re going to do. They have two good backs. They are going to come out and try to pound us and come after us running the ball.” Meyer said, “We have to be prepared. We have good cover guys, but we have to stop the run. If it starts to be a downhill game, then we have a problem. We can’t allow that.”
