TAMPA, Fla. – College football betting fans have a longshot Florida rivalry game to look out for as the Florida Gators head to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa to face the South Florida Bulls.
Florida is the runaway favorite for this matchup. The Gators are the #12 ranked team in the country while the Bulls are unranked and are coming off of a 45-0 loss to the NC State Wolfpack.
Betting fans looking to wager on this game may look at the long odds and not deem this matchup worth betting on but looking at spreads and other game props could still net big wins for sports bettors.
Florida Gators Vs. South Florida Bulls

- Spread: Florida -28.5
- Totals O/U 58.5
Can The Florida Gators Cover?
Gamblers looking to take Florida in this game should lean in on their (-110) odds to cover the -28.5 spread. The Bulls’ defense is laughable and their offense put up 0 points in their last game. It should be easy for Florida to dominate as the superior team in this match.
The Gators are also coming off of a game where they set their school record for the most rushing yards in a season opener with 400. Freshman QB Anthony Richards ran for 160 rushing yards against the FAU Owls.
South Florida gave up 293 rushing yards in their last game, so Florida’s running threat of Richards and RB Malik Davis should make easy working of the Bulls defensive line and lead to another blowout win for the Gators.
Profitable Prop Bets
Sportsbooks are hosting a number of game props that could net big returns for sports bettors. These odds could be more profitable for college football betting fans than taking straight bets on this one-sided matchup.
Any Team To Score 40+ Points
- Yes -204
- No +150
While South Florida did allow for 45 points in their last game, the Gators only scored 35 in their Week 1 game against FAU. Longshot betting enthusiasts could cash in handsomely if Florida puts up similar numbers on the board Saturday.
Defensive Or Special Teams TD Scored
- Yes +182
- No -256
South Florida threw 0 interceptions and did not have a fumble against NC State but the Gators defense forced two interceptions against FAU. With how limited the Bulls are on offense, a potential pick 6 is always there.
Time of First Score O/U 6 (mins elapsed)
- UNDER -159
- OVER +119
This matchup could potentially see no score happen for a while, specifically if the Gators start slow. Sports bettors interested in the long game should jump at this betting line as South Florida may manage to keep the Gators from scoring early.
These prop bets and more are available at regulated sports betting sites for this in-state faceoff. The two Florida teams will go up against one another on Saturday at 1 PM EST. Fans can catch this game on ABC and the CBS Sports App.
