The number one ranked Florida Gators head to Baton Rouge to take on the fourth ranked LSU Tigers in the biggest game of this 2009 college football season so far. The biggest question for this Florida Gators vs LSU Tigers game is whether Heisman Florida QB Tim Tebow will be able to play, after suffering a concussion on September 26th. It looks like Tim Tebow will be able to return to the line up in tonight’s huge game, as long as he gets a final medical clearance from the teams doctors. The 5-0 LSU Tigers look to end Florida’s 14 game winning streak tonight. Tonight’s game will be the first time the Gators (4-0) have really been tested so far this season. Kickoff is set for 8:00 PM EST, and the game will be aired on CBS. Betting lines, trends and predictions for this Florida vs LSU game are listed below.

Florida vs LSU Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Florida 30 LSU 20
Spread – Bet on the Gators to cover the 9.5 point spread at -110. The number one ranked Gators are ranked first for a reason – they are dominant. In four games Florida has allowed only 29 points against. Tim Tebow has looked like Tim Tebow, completing 44 of his 68 passes for 643 yards and 6 TDs. Tebow will be playing in this game, and look for the Gators to put up some numbers against this LSU defense. Florida will need help from their defense to cover the 9.5 point spread. Bet on the Florida Gators to Cover the spread.
Money Line – I don’t like the lines for the money line, with Florida paying -360 on the road against a fourth ranked team. Leave the money line alone and bet on Florida on the spread.
Over/Under – Bet the OVER 46 total points in this Florida vs LSU Saturday night game. Florida is averaging 46 points per game, a number that would be higher if they wanted to run up the score against teams they have been beating up on. LSU has an explosive offense as well, that should be able to score some points. Lay it down on the over 46 in this Florida/LSU game at -110.
