LSU vs Florida ATS Pick: Florida -10

Florida is just 2-4-1 in its last seven games as a double-digit favorite. The last time the teams met in Gainesville, the Gators won by 12 points. Six of the 10 starters from that game have moved on.

Florida is coming off a 14-point win at home against a ranked Auburn team and that is enough to roll with Florida to tame the Tigers.

Florida is the top rebounding team in the country and is second in offensive rebounding, and that could help the Gators pull away from the visiting Tigers.

LSU continues to play without forward Daimon Collins and guard Carlos Stewart.

LSU vs Florida Over/Under Pick: Under 161

LSU has allowed 88 and 109 points in its last two games so what will this matchup look like against the third-best scoring team in the SEC?

LSU is 88th in defensive efficiency according to the Pomeroy college basketball rankings compared to Florida being 13th in offensive efficiency so the Tigers may struggle to slow down the host Gators. Keep that in mind when looking at the best college basketball bets today.

However, Florida has surrendered 65 and 66 points over the last two games so that might be enough to send the game under the total.

LSU vs Florida Player Prop Pick: Zyon Pullin 19+ Points (+125)

Zyon Pullin is averaging 19.5 points and 6.5 assists over the last four games for Florida. He attempted a season-high 18 shots against Auburn and now he faces an LSU team with plenty of issues on defense, so don’t be surprised to see the UC Riverside transfer make it five straight games with at least 18 points.
