So far, 54% of the stakes have favored Florida, regardless of the lineup moving 0.5-points at Miamis direction. 59% of the bets have struck the below much, inducing the match total to fall 3 whole points.
With that said, lets see Miami and Florida stack on Saturday.
Last years Gators finished the season strong, winning their final four games and ending with a 10-3 record. Digging a bit deeper, Florida impressively finished with the amount 15 offense based on S&P+. Looking of 2019, Florida returns five starters on offense and the other eight on defense.
Especially, the offensive starters for Florida play with some of the most important positions of football. Starting with their quarterback, redshirt junior Feleipe Franks and his top six pass catchers return for 2019. Following a mid-season benching, Franks shut the year out on a high note, projecting in his final four matches for 862 yards and no interceptions.
Alas, the Gators must manage four faces across the offensive line. The team has 24 career starts. This could spell trouble for the run game along with Franks, going up from a Miami defensive lineup that is strong. Miami seems vulnerable through the air, which should benefit the 6-deep wide receiver corps of Florida.
After finishing 25 against the pass against the run and 6, miamis defense remains the strength of the group. Miami will lean in their defensive line talent despite dropping Joe Jackson and Gerald Willis. Miami returns three starting linebackers, including All-ACC gamers Michael Pinckney and Shaq Quarterman.
After dropping three starters in their backfield to the NFL 22, again, Miami weakness stems. Floridas best six receiving choices comprise Saturday, four former 4-star prospects in Tyrie Cleveland, Trevon Grimes, Van Jefferson, along with Josh Hammond, which should give them another advantage.
After head coach Manny Diaz declared redshirt freshman Jarren Williams as the teams starting 27, the biggest question for the Miami crime comes at quarterback. The number five pro-style quarterback from the 2018 recruiting course, Williams confronts.
Debatable for Williams, Miami has numerous fresh faces on offense. Williams will rely on defense from three starters, including freshman the tackle positions at each. Florida, on the other hand, brings a rotation with starting adventure along the line. This unit includes Jabari Zuniga, who ranked second in the SEC in tackles for loss.
Further exacerbating Williams problems, Maimi appears thin at pass catcher. As it sounds, Jeff Thomas looks as the very best receiving alternative after leading the Hurricanes this past year, receiving yards. After that, Miami will rely upon Buffalo move K.J. Osborn and tight ends Brevin Jordan and Will Mallory.
Unfortunately for Williams, Florida also attracts one of the top corner duos from the country with C.J. Henderson along with Marco Wilson. Henderson allowed an absurd 18 catches for 343 yards and 0 touchdowns in his coverage . Insert in the adventure of Trey Dean at Jeawon Taylor, Donovan and STAR Stiner, and Brad Stewart at Miami and safety has their work cut out for these.
The Florida Gators simply have too much firepower on both sides of the globe while Manny Diaz will seem to earn a statement in his very first match as Miamis head coach. Add in a redshirt freshman quarterback and Miami resembles a group. Together with the line sitting in 7.5-points, Flordia remains a lock 7.5-point favorites.
