The Scouts Inc. Preview offered this game forecast:

Nick Saban and Urban Meyer are two of the nation's elite coaches and they'll have their respective teams motivated and prepared to play on Saturday. There isn't a defense in the country better than the two units that will take the field in the Georgia Dome on Saturday. Both teams are blessed with game-breakers, as well. Alabama has Jones on the perimeter, Ingram in the backfield and Javier Arenas in the return game. Florida has Hernandez at tight end, Jeffery Demps and Chris Rainey in the backfield and Brandon James returning kicks.

So what will be the difference when these SEC heavyweights do battle? The answer is obvious: the quarterback position. McElroy is improved and he enters this contest with confidence after leading Alabama on an epic game-winning drive in the Iron Bowl. But he's not Tebow. When Florida needs to convert on third or fourth down, it can count on Tebow to deliver. When Florida gets into the red zone and needs to get more physical, it can count on Tebow to deliver. And if Florida needs a big play late to put the Crimson Tide away, you guessed it -- it can count on Tebow to deliver.

Alabama is 3-2 over the last 5 in this series, however, Florida has had statement wins over the last two by more than double digits.  The Gators were much bigger favorites in both those games.

Some important Florida Gators vs. Alabama Crimson Tide odds trends to consider before wagering on this game include:

The Gators are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game.

The Gators are 20-6 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

The Gators are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games following a SU win of more than 20 points.

The Gators are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games following a S.U. win.

The Crimson Tide are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 conference games.
