Score: 61 - 79
Point Spread: -17½/-103 Florida
Today's winner is Florida over UAB. This is my Slam Dunk play.
This is the final "warm-up" before SEC play begins for Florida. The Gators have the #4 ranked scoring offense in the nation, averaging 85.9 PPG and outscoring opponents by 18.6 PPG. They are a perfect 9-0 SU at home and seem to prey upon weaker "game." All Florida starters are posting double digits every game with Guard, Kenny Boynton leading the way (19.4 PPG). This is a talented, smart squad that will devour the 5-7 UAB team. The Blazers rank 320th in scoring and are just 1-4 SU on the road. Even with Conference USA pre-season Player of the Year, Cameron Moore, they just don't have the horses nor do they face the caliber of opponents to run with or compete against Florida here. Sure, they can beat Alabama A&M and Jackson but fold like cheap suit when facing a quality foe. They also lost outright to nobody's Murray State, Tennessee Martin, and South Alabama. Take Florida. Thank you.
