Florida Gators vs. Auburn Tigers Betting Line

The Florida Gators vs. Auburn Tigers betting line was set at Florida -2 at Sportsbook.com

Two teams searching for quality quarterback play lock horns in an important SEC game on Saturday night, when No. 24 Auburn hosts Florida.

These two will meet for the first time since 2007, when Auburn won 20-17 at The Swamp. This was the fourth straight meeting that was decided in the final minute. Both teams are coming off blowout losses, as Florida was drilled by LSU 41-11, and Auburn was crushed at Arkansas, 38-14. The Gators QB situation is unsettled as both John Brantley and Jeff Driskel are dealing with ankle injuries, as is RB Jeff Demps. The Tigers have QB issues of their own, as Barrett Trotter is 18-of-42 for 193 yards, 1 TD and 3 INT in his past two games, leading his team to just 30 total points. Although the offenses may be similar with this lack of quality signal callers, the defenses are far, far apart. Florida just played the top two teams in the nation, but still ranks 11th in total defense (291 YPG). Auburn has not yet faced Alabama or LSU, but the Tigers rank 105th in total defense (440 YPG). The Gators are 14-4 SU (12-6 ATS) away from home since 2007, and will leave Alabama with another road victory on Saturday night.

It appears that Brantley will not physically be ready to play on Saturday, leaving the starting job to Driskel or fellow freshman Jacoby Brissett, who has been the starter in practice this week. Brissett completed 8-of-14 passes for 94 yards, 1 TD and 2 INT in the loss to LSU last week. Driskel was unable to play against LSU, but he has seen action in four other contests, combining to complete 7-of-16 passes for 0 TD and 2 INT. Demps is questionable for Saturday’s game, but he will try his best to return to the field, especially considering Auburn’s poor run defense is allowing 202 YPG (103rd in nation). He and Florida’s top rusher Chris Rainey (78 rushing YPG), could be in for a big night.

Trotter is coming off a dismal performance against Arkansas where he went 6-of-19 for 81 yards, 0 TD and 1 INT. The one bright spot for the Tigers offense has been sophomore RB Michael Dyer, who already has four 100-yard rushing efforts. Dyer has rumbled for 403 yards (5.0 YPC) and four touchdowns in three SEC games this year. One of the reasons the Gators were torched for 464 rushing yards combined against Alabama and LSU is that they failed to produce any turnovers. Auburn has coughed it up seven times in the past two weeks, and ball protection will go a long way in determining how well the Tigers move the football.
