Florida earned a 73-67 home win Friday night over Marshall to improve to 6-2 overall and 3-1 at home. The Gators outscored the Thundering Herd 48-34 in the second half after trailing by eight at halftime.

Kamar Baldwin highlighted the effort by Butler as he poured in 31 points on 11-of-16 shooting including 4-of-5 from 3-point distance plus 5-of-5 at the free throw line.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Florida

The Gators are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games. Florida is 2-7 ATS in its last nine games overall.

Butler

The Bulldogs are 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games. Butler is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games overall.

Prediction:

Butler is fairly solid on both ends of the court while the Gators often struggle on the offensive end and that could be the difference here on the road with an early start. Florida has the best win between the two teams with a neutral court triumph over Xavier, but I like the Bulldogs to get the job done here and cover the spread on their home court to stay unbeaten on the season.
