Florida, number 6, will look to maintain their current hot streak on Saturday night at The Swamp when they host an Arkansas team that has been one of college football’s most pleasant surprises this season. The Gators are coming off an emphatic victory over rival Georgia that established them at the top of the SEC East title race. Meanwhile, Arkansas came back from a double-digit deficit in the second half to knock Tennessee out last weekend.

Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman will not be training on Saturday night after testing positive for COVID-19 on Sunday. Defensive coordinator Barry Odom will serve as interim head coach in his place. Odom was the Missouri coach from 2016-19.

Florida have beaten Arkansas in nine of 11 all-time games. However, the Razorbacks dominated the Gators when they last met in 2016. Will the Hogs continue this run and their remarkable start or will the Gators have their best in this inter-division game at Gainesville. Let’s break down the game and make direct and against the spread choices.

Storylines

Florida: All-star tight end Kyle Pitts will not play after suffering a concussion last week against Georgia. Coach Dan Mullen has said he is also not expected to play next week. That means Kemore Gamble – who caught a touchdown last week after Pitts’ injury – will serve as the main tight end. The offense shouldn’t miss too much time thanks to the play of star quarterback Kyle Trask. The senior redshirt has 22 touchdown passes in five games – which is the same number former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow had in his first five games last season.

The Gators’ defense was atrocious in the third downs in the first three games of the season, but held Missouri at 3 of 15 and Georgia at 2 of 13 for the past two weeks.

Arkansas: It will be the return of former Florida quarterback and current Razorbacks starter Feleipe Franks, who lost his job to Trask after Franks suffered an injury last September. The senior graduate transfer from Crawfordville, Fla. Threw for 1,428 yards, 14 touchdowns and three interceptions while adding 174 rushing yards in Kendal Briles’ offense. The biggest change for the Hogs this season has been limiting the big plays on defense. They rank third in the SEC for defensive yards per play at 5.16 after finishing 13th last season (6.54 yards per play).

Florida vs Arkansas prediction, pick

Arkansas is 6-0 ATS this year, and it will be 7-0 this week. This game just screams disappointment for the Gators. Pitts ‘injury has dominated the storylines, but winning a big rivalry last week coupled with the Hogs’ toughness – especially in the trenches – will make this an ugly, old-fashioned slugfest. Give me the Gators to win, but the Razorbacks to cover. Florida 30, Arkansas 17 | Picks: Arkansas +17.5
