Feleipe Franks was leading the offense early in the year, but suffered a season-ending ankle injury. Kyle Trask has thrown for 647yards and five touchdowns in his place.

The Tigers are giving up just 17.2 points and 320.2 yards per game on defense this season while the offense is putting up 38 points and 454.4 yards per game.

College Football Betting Trends
The Gators are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five conference games and 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games against a team with a winning road record.
The Tigers have covered in six straight games overall and in five of their last seven against a winning team.
These two haven’t met since 2011. Auburn has won three straight against Florida while covering the spread in five straight against the Gators. Auburn is very battle-tested, so going to Florida shouldn’t be a big problem. This Auburn defense has held up to much stronger offenses. The key will be for the Tigers to move the ball on a solid Florida defense. Auburn hasn’t faced a defense quite like theirs yet. As long as the Tigers avoid costly turnovers, they can come away with a win and cover here.
