Kentucky vs. Florida Predictions

Page 2 of After watching the UF game today I couldnt wait to ask this question. Does UK beat Florida for the first time in 26 years? Before watching the game today I thought they had a chance, then after seeing them struggle and all the injuries, I now think they have a really good opportunity Saturday. 7PM start week should get all the Cats fans out. Cant wait!... 61 comments | 2148 Views | Go to page 1 →

    .......

    Here is what I know for sure: Tennessee > Kentucky. We saw, clearly, that Florida (with their back-up, which I think improves them) > Tennessee.

    Ergo, I think it is clear that Florida > Kentucky. Florida being on the road could give UK a pulse, but I think that 14 would be safe to give. That said, I'd stay away from this game if you are a gambler.

    At the sites I look at, Florida opened giving 12.5, it crept up to 14 or 14.5, and now is back down to 13. Bets are currently 63% for Gators and 37% for UK. I'll be interested to see where the O/U opens.

    I think the Gators just improved with an injury to the QB. If the OC will allow the kid to move the pocket some this team will win a few more games just off his ability.

    Gators - 38

    Cats - 10

    Big game Saturday night. Florida tries to overcome injuries, while Kentucky tries to remain undefeated in the SEC.

    I think the Cats finally get it done this year.

    Truthfully, beating Florida isn't that hard. Don't know what's been taking so long for UK to get over the hump. I mean, who hasn't beaten Florida lately?

    But truthfully, I think UK's defense has played pretty well and Florida's offense is awful. Like the mediocre Cats team that finally beat Tennessee, the time for this to happen might just be now.

    The question, as always, is whether Kentucky can find a way into the end zone through a stout Gator defense.

    Scoring is certainly an issue, but for me, the Cats cannot turn the ball over. Kentucky has a legitimate shot at upsetting UL if they don't have costly turnovers. If there is a repeat performance in that area, Florida will come away with a similar margin of victory.

    If UK were to win I am not seeing it as a scenario they outscore FL in the 30s or putting up points as some are predicting. It will be a 13-12 type game.

    I don't know why, but I get a weird feeling about this year's game. Probably one of the better chances we've had to beat them in some time, which is ironic considering that the talent level on this year's team on the whole is down.

    Would love to see this streak end and see Stoops have a big win to hang his hat on, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Same here^^^

    It seems like UK is walking into a perfect scenario to end the streak. Florida hasn't looked impressive at all this year, and with their injuries mounting by the day, literally, it sets up for a UK upset.

    ......

    Reading this thread amazes me, but I love the optimism. I don't feel it, I think this is 60 minutes of One Way traffic.

    It's sure a nice change of pace after the last few years
