In 10 out of the last 14 games between the teams, the spread was covered by the underdog.
Price per head sportsbooks can see that overall the Tide have a better record than the Gators, and they won big when they faced the Texas A&M Aggies, but four of their main scorers are out, something that comes at a very bad moment for the team. Even though many price per head sportsbooks believe that Alabama have the better side, they think that Florida will be the ones to win this match.
