The Florida Gators are back on the road after a brief weeklong hiatus at home, and they enter a game that could have significant implications beyond the final score. With the Gators 1-4 away this season and having struggled tremendously the last time they were on the road, the Missouri Tigers present an opportunity for a real upright game as they are ranked near the bottom. FBS on both sides of the bale.
If Florida head coach Dan Mullen is hoping to keep his job after his harness has been set on fire in the past two weeks, it starts with beating Missouri – perhaps hands down – and building that momentum in the last game of the regular season. Saturday is also an opportunity for the Gators to lock down bowl eligibility for the fourth consecutive season and avoid the same fate suffered the last time UF performed so poorly in 2017.
With recruiting still in dire straits and plenty of questions surrounding Mullen, especially after the unfortunate first half against Samford last week, Florida need a big win and end of season to try to turn things around. . Either way, anything seems possible for the Gators due to how talented the team is despite the past two weeks.
What will happen on Saturday when Florida visits Missouri? Let’s find out.

Prediction and analysis
Broadcast: Florida -9 | WHERE : 69
There is simply no way that this spread makes sense, leading to fears that bettors will know something we don’t know. It would be one thing if the Gators were favored like this at home given the advantage of playing in The Swamp, but Florida are 2-5 ATS as a favorite against FBS opponents this season, 0-5 ATS in the away games and 1-4 directly in those non-home games.
Florida are statistically much better in attack than in defense compared to Missouri, but it’s still a Gators team that put in pathetic defensive efforts in back-to-back games and were rightfully on the ropes after dropping a program record. 42 points in the first half. to an FCS team. Florida absolutely turned it around defensively in the second half last week, and that’s commendable, but who knows how it’s going to turn out in a road game like this.
As I have said in recent weeks, betting on this Gators team is not recommended as Florida is completely unpredictable week after week. There is a chance he will win this game easily. There is also a possibility that he will lose outright. Missouri beat South Carolina 31-28, a team to which UF lost 40-17 the week before. However, the Tigers’ only wins this season are against SC, Vanderbilt, North Texas and Central Michigan. Either way, it would be a shock to see the Gators defense stop the Tigers completely, so the ending is a lean with Missouri getting points, but don’t take any of those to the bank.
