Florida vs Alabama Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Florida 28 Alabama 21
Spread Prediction – I like FLORIDA to cover the 5.5 point spread in this SEC championship game. Florida QB Tim Tebow is my pick for the Heisman trophy again this year, and I believe he will lead his team back to the BCS game for another shot at the national title. Alabama will match Florida’s offense, but Florida will come out on top by a touchdown. A $50 bet on Florida to cover the 5.5 point spread pays out a generous $95 at BetUS.com.
Over Under Prediction – Take the OVER 41.5 total points in this Florida vs Alabama match up. Both teams do have stellar defenses, but they have too good of offenses. I expect a couple big plays on special teams which will help bring the total over. Look for Heisman hopefuls Tebow and Ingram to have big games. Bet the over.
