Florida's Recent Stumbles Should Create Cause For Concern

Everything was gravy for the Florida Gators just a few weeks ago, but things have taken a major downtown since. The Gators will try to reverse their recent fortunes on Saturday when they face Cincinnati in the Never Forget Tribute Classic in Newark, New Jersey.

MyBookie opened the Bearcats as 1.5-point road favorites with a total of 146.

Shark Bites
  • The Bearcats are 5-1 ATS in their last six Saturday games.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Gators' last five games following a SU loss.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 in the Bearcats' last four neutral site games.

Florida led by as many as 13 points against Loyola-Chicago in their last time out by fell 65-59 in an absolute stunner. The Gators went 2-for-19 from beyond the arc in the setback, causing guard Jalen Hudson to state after the game “This is the lowest we can get. I don’t think we can get any lower than this.” The Gators have been outscored by 44 points in their last 90 minutes of game action.

The 17th-ranked Bearcats are looking for answers themselves after dropping a 13-point decision to rival Xavier in their first loss of the campaign. A loss to the Gators would surely knock Cincy out of the top-25 rankings. The Bearcats are fantastic on the glass, as the club is averaging 43.1 rebounds per game - 10th most in Division I.

Cincinnati has been a near lock to go UNDER totals of late. In the Bearcats’ last five games, the UNDER is 4-1.
