FLORIDA: The Gators enter play in Week 5 coming off their first loss of the season. After taking a 21-3 into halftime at Tennessee last Saturday, Florida gave up 35 unanswered points before scoring a garbage touchdown in the final four minutes of play to lose 38-28 as a 4-point underdog. The loss dropped the Gators to 3-1 on the year and 1-3 against the spread, with their lone cover coming against Kentucky as a 14-point favorite in Week 2.

The victory improved Vandy's record to 2-2 on the year and after covering as a 9.5-point underdog, the Commodores are also 2-2 against the spread. Their two covers came in a 47-24 win over Middle Tennessee State in Week 2 as a 3-point favorite, and last week as nearly a double-digit dog.

OUR PICK: Many observers are expecting this game to be a defensive struggle, and it should be. But with the total sitting at 41, there's still plenty of value in taking the over, which is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams when Vanderbilt hosts the game, and is 5-1 in the last six meetings overall. The over is also 6-1 in the Commodores' last seven home games versus a team with a winning record and is 5-2 in the Gators' last seven games coming off a straight up loss.
