Florida vs. Wisconsin Free Pick

Florida's opener against Georgetown on Friday (on USS Bataan) from Jacksonville was canceled due to condensation on the court. Wisconsin travels to the Stephen C. O'Connell Center in Gainesville to take on the Florida Gators.
LINE MOVEMENT: The Gators opened as a 5.5-point favorite and moved to 6 in most books. The total opened at 122.5 and moved to 122 in most books.
NCAA FREE PICK: Take Florida. According to the latest college basketball trends, FLORIDA is 29-15 ATS L44 November games. Both teams are playing without their starting point guards. Scottie Wilbekin (suspended indef.) is out for Florida, while Josh Gasser will miss the rest of the season for the Badgers. But the Gators are in better shape with senior Kenny Boynton, who will continue to startwith Wilbekin out. Boynton, the Gators' leader with 15.9 points per gamelast season, hit all four of his 3-pointers and finished with 22 points, five assists and six rebounds Sunday. Wisconsin's new point guard, George Marshall got his first feel for a collegiate game Sunday, finishing with five points and two assists in Wisconsin's 87-47 victory over Southeastern Louisiana. Marshall, the first Badgers freshman to start a season opener since Devin Harris in 2001, was at point guard after Gasser suffered a season-ending ACL injury in practice late last month. Florida's senior big men Erik Murphy and junior center Patric Young will make it tough for the Badgers' frontline. Murphy hit three 3s and scored 15 points in the opener, while Young added 12 with 12 rebounds and two blocks as Florida held the Hornets to 21.4 percent shooting. Florida wants to speed up the tempo against a methodical team. The difference will be the point guard play as Marshall's inexperience will hurt Wisconsin.
