Florida vs. Syracuse,
12/02/2011 18:30 EDT,
Score: 68 - 72
Point Spread: +6½/-105 Florida
1 Unit on Florida Gators +6.5
Florida played Ohio State to a 7-point game on the road to cover the 8.5-point spread, and it can certainly keep this one within the number tonight as well.
The Gators have the advantage here having already played one of the elite programs in the country. Syracuse is yet to play anyone close to Florida's caliber.
Dating back to last season, the Gators are 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games. They have been an unbelievable investment when catching points, going 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games as an underdog. They are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog of 6.5 points or less. The Orange, meanwhile, are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite of 6.5 points or fewer and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games as a home favorite of 6.5 points or less.
We'll take the points.
