Alabama vs Florida Over/Under Pick: Over 174 Points

College basketball spreads set a high total for the matchup between Alabama and Florida, but the two should be able to hit it after going over in each of their previous two games this season as well.

The Crimson Tide and Gators are two of the top-scoring offenses in the SEC, ranking first and third, respectively, averaging 90.8 and 84.9 points. Alabama also led the NCAA in scoring. Neither offense has appeared to slow down as the Tide averaged 90.2 points 46.7% shooting in their last five games while Florida has put up 85.4 points on 47.9% shooting in the same span.

Both teams have needed that offense to earn wins as the defenses have not been on the same level, ranking near the bottom in the SEC. Florida has allowed 80.2 points a game in its last five, with the Crimson Tide giving up 95.8 points a game in that same time, including two games over 100 points.

With both of their first two meetings resulting in an offensive battle, with the two combining for 191 and 192 points in their two matchups, and both teams’ offensive firepower, another high-scoring matchup should be expected.

Alabama vs Florida Player Prop Pick: Mark Sears Over 21.5 Points (-114)

Sears has been one of the main reasons for Alabama’s offensive prowess, leading the Tide with 21.1 points a game. Sears has scored at least 22 points in all four of his last games and seven of his last nine.

Sears opened the SEC tournament strong, scoring 22 points against Arkansas, and was also successful in both games against Florida, averaging 25 points. On the road, Sears averages 23.2 points, and with the Tide looking to make it to the semifinals in what should a high-scoring battle, he should have another high-scoring game.
