Florida vs LSU Prediction & College Football Odds for Week 7
- LSU Tigers keep it close against the Florida Gators on Saturday
- Florida is able to escape with a victory
- Expect a high-scoring affair in this SEC rivalry game
One of the best rivalries in college football is set to resume on Saturday as the LSU Tigers host the Florida Gators. Neither team is going to win the SEC Championship this season, but that won’t take anything away from this game.
Florida comes into Week 7 with a record of 4-2, but their two losses have been by just nine combined points. The Gators picked up a 42-0 win over Vanderbilt in Week 6 and they will come into this game with some momentum.
LSU has now lost two straight games and they are just 3-3 on the year. Both of those losses did come against ranked teams, but the Tigers will have to deal with another ranked team on Saturday.

Florida vs LSU Prediction: Spread
It seems pretty clear that Florida is the more complete team in this matchup, and they have also been having the better overall season. Florida can put up points in a hurry, and they have a defense that is capable of shutting opposing teams down.
LSU has struggled to get stops, and they have also struggled to pick up yards on the ground. The Tigers do have an explosive passing attack, and that could allow them to keep this game close against Florida.
The best bet in this game is to take the 10.5 points and bet on LSU as they won’t allow this game to get out of hand.
- Free Prediction: LSU Tigers +10.5
Florida vs LSU Prediction: MoneyLine
Since the Florida Gators are 10.5 point favorites on Saturday, they are also a large betting pick on the moneyline as well. There isn’t a ton of value in taking Florida at -420, even though it’s hard to see the Gators not finding a way to leave town with a win.

Florida vs LSU Prediction: Total
Florida is averaging over 500 yards of total offense per game, and they have a balanced attack. The Gators have been running over opponents all season long, and it’s hard to see LSU finding a way to slow them down on Saturday.
The Tigers will counter by taking some deep shots in the passing game, and they have been known to hit on some big plays. All of this leads to what could be a high-scoring affair as each team will be playing fast.
SEC games were traditionally low-scoring affairs, but that is simply no longer the case. It’s going to take at least 35 points to win this game, and that is why the over/under prediction is to take the over 59.0 total points.
- Free Prediction: Over 59.0
