  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Florida’s last 9 games against an opponent in the East Division division

Kentucky Betting Outlook

The Wildcats were without some of their best players in Week 1, due to disciplinary actions taken by the coaching staff. Will Levis was one of the more hyped quarterbacks to take the next step this season, and had a big day pairing up with Tayvion Robinson, who racked up 136 yards on six catches.

The Wildcats defense also played well, limiting Miami QB Brett Gabbert to just 166 yards. Keidron Smith also recovered a pair of fumbles for the Wildcat defense on the way to victory.

After Week 1, the Wildcats have the 30th best scoring offense, and the 17th best scoring defense. The Wildcats ran the ball 40% of the time and threw the ball 60% of the time. The Wildcats have the 22nd best sack% as well, which should help them get after Anthony Richardson.

Florida Betting Outlook

Anthony Richardson looked all of the NFL prospect in Week 1 against Utah in Billy Napier’s debut as the head coach.  Richardson only threw for 168 passing yards, but he led the offense to four impressive scoring drives and led the team with 106 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns.

The defense allowed some big runs to Utah in the second half, but was able to make some big plays when it counted down the stretch, sealing a win with an interception in the endzone.

The Gators have the 46th best scoring offense and the 44th ranked scoring defense in the country after Week 1. The offense ran the ball on 60% of plays in their opening week win.

Kentucky vs Florida Pick & Prediction

This is a classic letdown spot for Florida, they had been preparing for Utah all off-season and got their big upset win, now they await Kentucky who has had their sights set on Florida all offseason.

Pick: Kentucky +6 (-110) at DraftKings Sportsbook
