According to latest college basketball trends, the Scarlet Knights are 0-8 against the spread in their last eight home games while the Gators are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games versus the Big East. But Florida hasn’t played in a week and there’s bound to be some rust. Rutgers features a balanced scoring attack as seven players are averaging six or more points a game. Thus, if one player is off, a teammate usually steps up. Look for the Scarlet Knights to keep things close as the Gators get their legs back.
