Florida vs. Alabama College Basketball Prediction
The road team is 20-5-1 against the spread in the last 26 meetings between these two teams while the Gators are 4-1 against the number in their last five games overall. That said, the Crimson Tide are 15-5 against the spread in their last 20 games coming off an ATS win, are 13-5-1 against the number in their last 19 games versus a team with a winning road record and have covered in 15 of their last 22 games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600. Thus, I’m not touching the side in this game.
The over, meanwhile, has cashed in four of the Gators’ last five games overall, is 4-1 in their last five games coming off a win and is 5-1 in their last six games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600. On the other side, the over is 27-13 in the Crimson Tide’s last 40 games as a home favorite.
