Even though Kentucky is having a down year (17-6 SU, 8-12 ATS), Florida should know better than to take the Wildcats lightly. The Gators are 19-3 SU and 12-7 ATS so far this season, and can shake off the ill effects of their recent loss to Arkansas with a win Tuesday. [ Kentucky vs Florida Matchup Stats ]
