    The Florida Gators hold an all-time record of 8-1 against the Arkansas Razorbacks, which includes a perfect 3-0 mark at "The Swamp."

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Gators are 5-1 straight up and 2-4 against the spread as favorites of 10.5 to 21 points, with the over going 4-2 in that situation.

Prediction

3 of 3

    I'm going to recommend that readers back the Arkansas Razorbacks, as the Florida Gators have failed to cover the number in their last six home games.
