A clear difference in perception can be seen for the Florida Gators now compared to August. Florida opened the season as a team looking to rebuild with new head coach Dan Mullen. Yet the Gators earned newfound bet on College Football respect. In fact, Florida will enter the Peach Bowl ranked tenth in the nation. Contrarily the Michigan Wolverines spent most of the season being touted as a college football playoff contender. But the Maize and Blue got a stark reality check in their regular season finale at Ohio State. Michigan was emasculated by the hated Scarlet and Gray.

Florida vs. Michigan TV Coverage: ESPN
Following their bet on College Football debacle at Ohio State the Michigan Wolverines have had a month to stew. Certainly, Michigan still has an impressive record of 10-2 straight up, 6-6 against the spread, and 7-5 over the total. In the same way the pattern of running out of gas at the end of the season was maintained. The Maize and Blue failed to deliver the cash in their final three games. Correlate that Jim Harbaugh coached teams usually limp to the finish line. Of great concern was the Wolverines 62-39 loss at Ohio State and the helpless look.
Florida enters this Peach Bowl with solid sportsbook momentum. As a matter of fact, the Gators covered their last two games and won three in a row straight up. As a result, Florida finished 9-3 straight up, 8-4 vs. the odds, and 7-4-1 over the total. Last time out for UF was a 41-14 payout at Florida State. In view of Dan Mullen’s arrival was a vast improvement to Florida’s offense. To illustrate the Gators ranked 32nd in the nation for scoring. In the same way did the Florida defense impress. UF was 21st in the country for points allowed.
Stats to Consider
Florida has been a subpar betting value getting points away from home. To show the Gators have lost five of their last seven games on the board getting points on the road. Four of their last five in that role have gone under the total. Balanced against that is Michigan’s overlay status as a road chalk. The Maize and Blue have covered just six of their last 18 games laying points away from home. Six of their last nine in that situation have gone under the total.
Team vs. Team
Michigan utterly owns Florida in this head to head series. To illuminate the Wolverines have won and covered their last four meetings with the Gators. All four games went over the total. Last year in the season opener at Arlington, Texas the Maize and Blue covered a 33-17 win over Florida.
Matchup to Watch
In the first place Michigan’s lost to Ohio State revealed their bet on College Football matchup weaknesses. Harbaugh’s team was exposed as lacking speed and offensive imagination. To this end a seven point lay is too expensive.
