College Football Betting Preview: LSU Tigers vs. Florida Gators

November 11, 2023


The Florida Gators will travel to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to face the LSU Tigers at Tiger Stadium on Saturday afternoon in a battle of two SEC teams that have a storied history against each other with the game kicking off at 7:30 PM ET on Saturday evening and airing on the SEC Network in week 11 of the college football season.

The Billy Napier era as the head coach of the Florida Gators looks like it may be coming to an end as the Gators have been inconsistent this season and enter the matchup with a record of 5-4 and an SEC record of 3-3 which means they have to win one of their remaining games on their schedule, however, Florida still has to play the LSU Tigers and the Missouri Tigers on the road and end the season at home against the Florida State Seminoles all of which are having better seasons than the Gators are entering week 11. Florida is also on a two-game losing streak following last week’s 36-39 loss in overtime at home against the Arkansas Razorbacks while failing to cover the 3-point spread as a home favorite. The defense for the Florida Gators has been a pivotal part of their struggles over the last three games as they are allowing an average of 40.33 points per game and will not have to travel to face one of the best offenses in the SEC this season when they face the LSU Tigers.

LSU won the SEC West last season and played for the 2022 SEC Championship game against the Georgia Bulldogs last year, however, following the loss last week against the Alabama Crimson Tide by a score of 28-42 the LSU Tigers have now lost to the Ole Miss Rebels and the Crimson Tide to drop their record to 6-3 with a record of 4-2 in the SEC which puts them in 3rd place in the SEC West behind the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Ole Miss Rebels. However, the Tigers have still had one of the best offenses in the SEC this season as they are averaging the 3rd most points per game in college football with an average of 45.22 points per game which is only fewer than the Oregon Ducks and the USC Trojans. Jayden Daniels has been one of the best players in college football this season and has played a pivotal role in the success that the LSU Tigers have had offensively as he has completed 178 of 247 attempts for 2,792 yards with 27 touchdowns and four interceptions while also leading the team in rushing with 684 rushing yards and six touchdowns. LSU will be looking to bounce back following last week’s loss when they host the Florida Gators on Saturday evening.
