LSU at Florida Pick and Preview

College Football Betting Preview
LSU (4-0) at Florida (4-1)
Saturday, 8:00 pm Eastern – CBS

SBG Global Opening Line: Florida  -  4  ,  Total  45.5

 

An intense SEC rivalry game is on tap Saturday night in Florida as the Gators host the LSU Tigers.  It is a matchup of the last two national champions and features last year’s Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow.  It is the first time in 18 years that the National Champs from the previous two seasons will meet in a regular season game.  LSU has won four of the last six meetings against Florida including two of the last three in Gainesville. SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking LSU on the Road.

 

Last year the Tigers won 28-24 as they scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.  It won’t be any easier this season. “If you find any weaknesses, tell me,” LSU head coach Les Miles said. “They don’t have any weaknesses. Being ranked (# 11) is underselling them some. It will be our strengths against their strengths. Our team will have a real want to compete in that game. If we play like we can, I like our matchup. Make no bones about it. This game will be fun to play. The players will enjoy this one.”  The key in the game will be how well LSU stops Tebow and the Florida offense.  The Gators lead the SEC at 36 points per game, just slightly head of LSU’s 35.5 points per game.

 

The all-time series edge is with Florida at 28-23-3.  Here are more College Football betting stats for Saturday’s game. The Tigers are 17-8-2 ATS in their last 27 road games.

- JED GOTTLIEB EAT: FORTY CARROTS’ FROZEN YOGURT Sure, New Englanders love their ice cream. But maybe that’s because we’ve never had a scrumptious alternative. Enter Forty Carrots, the new in-store restaurant at Bloomingdale’s in Chestnut Hill.The company’s frozen yogurt recipe comes with a cult following. Health-nuts love the low calories and foodies fall for the tangy taste. The lemon zings and the peanut butter/banana combo is divine, but regulars swear by the original plain.
