In a week that saw some early season shuffling among ranked teams, the Florida Gators (6-0 SU, 5-1 ATS) made the most significant jump, moving up nine spots and cracking the top-15.
The Gators will face a hostile crowd for the first time this season as they play a true road contest vs the Oklahoma Sooners (6-1 SU, 3-4 ATS) at Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Oklahoma. Oddsshark has Florida -1 with a total of 134.5 on the early line.
Lock it Down
The Gators are off to their best start in nearly a decade, and that’s attributed to some stellar defense through the first six games. Florida ranks in the top-20 nationally in a few defensive categories. The team is anchored around 6’11" big Colin Castleton, who has a decent 15p/10r/2a line.
Florida has relied on balanced scoring, including some good efforts off the pine from Phlandrous Fleming Jr. The Gators have played all six of their games without leaving the state of Florida, with 4 at home and two at the Fort Myers Tip-Off; they won the latter on a buzzer-beater by Tyree Appleby taking down Ohio St in the final.nbsp; The teams have met twice previously, each winning on the opposing floor. Florida hammered the Sooners in Norman 82-54 back in Jan, 2017.
Behind the Arc
The Sooners like to shoot the three and have several players who do it well. The team is led by 6’10" Sr Tanner Groves (15p/6r/2a) who cans a notable 38.5% from deep. Senior G Umoja Gibson is averaging just over 40% shooting the trey. Oklahoma has won all three games at home in the 2021-2022 campaign.
