Line: Florida (-21)
The Florida Gators passed arguably their biggest SEC test of the season — well, other than the LSU game, which they didn’t pass — last weekend. Now, it should be smooth sailing from here. Of course, the Gators will meet up with the Florida State Seminoles to close out the season, but even a loss in that game wouldn’t doom this team when it comes to making the SEC title game.
Not only has Florida historically dominated Vandy, but the Commodores are having yet another disappointing season. They have the 3-5 record to show for that one, and they are also coming off of a 34-0 loss against the Houston Cougars. Vanderbilt also has just one victory in SEC play.
Florida’s only loss came against the LSU Tigers on the road … by seven points. The Gators’ best win arguably came against the Ole Miss Rebels (38-10) when the Rebels were basically on top of the world.
College football has been all about the upsets this season, but it’s not happening in this one. And if it does, all bets are off the rest of the year, and literally any team could end up making the playoff — well, within reason.
PREDICTION: Commodores 7, Gators 30
