Predicting motivation is a big part of bowl game betting, but that’s always difficult to know heading into a matchup. Florida is obviously the more talented team in this game and with the combination of an in-state matchup and trying to impress new head coach Billy Napier, I think we’ll see a solid performance from the Gators even with a roster that expected bigger things this year.
