NCAAF Odds: Georgia at No. 11 Florida

The No. 11 Florida Gators (6-1 SU, 5-1-1 ATS) have nearly clinched the SEC East Division for the first time since 2009. A win this Saturday against the rival Georgia Bulldogs (5-2 SU, 2-5 ATS) would put Florida two games up on the 'Dawgs with two games left to go in the regular season. At press time, the Gators are 3-point “home” favorites at EverBank Field in Jacksonville; kick-off is at 3:30 PM ET on CBS, with mostly sunny skies in the forecast.

Florida has made quick progress in its first year under head coach Jim McElwain. However, the Gators had their undefeated season spoiled two weeks ago by the LSU Tigers, who prevailed 35-28 as 7-point home faves on the closing line. McElwain used the bye week to prepare for Saturday, as did Mark Richt and the Bulldogs after scraping past the Missouri Tigers (+14.5 away) 9-6.
If Saturday's game turns into a similar kicking duel, the Gators could be in trouble. They held open tryouts after PK Jorge Powell was forced out of the LSU game with a season-ending knee injury. Redshirt junior PK Austin Hardin has been injured and ineffective, leaving the identity of Saturday's kicker unresolved.

NCAAF : Who Will Kick for the Gators Versus Georgia? The No. 11 Florida Gators (6-1 SU, 5-1-1 ATS) will be 3-point “home” favorites this Saturday when they meet the Georgia Bulldogs (5-2 SU, 2-5 ATS) at EverBank Field in Jacksonville. But who will be Florida's starting kicker? At press time, it's still up in the air who won Florida's open tryouts.

The Gators need a new kicker after Jorge Powell suffered a season-ending knee injury in their Week 7 loss to the LSU Tigers. Redshirt junior PK Austin Hardin hasn't been healthy or consistent enough. Time's running out for Florida; Saturday's kick-off is at 3:30 PM ET on CBS.

The No. 11 Florida Gators (6-1 SU, 5-1-1 ATS) can take another step toward clinching the SEC East with a win this Saturday over the Georgia Bulldogs (5-2 SU, 2-5 ATS). Kick-off from EverBank Field in Jacksonville is at 3:30 PM ET on CBS, with Florida favored by three points.

Tennis Odds: Federer Defending Home Court in Basel

World's No. 3 Roger Federer has won the Swiss Indoors title six times, and has been to the finals every year since 2006. Federer went into this week's event as the top seed and the favorite. He's well on his way to defending his title after a 6-1, 6-2 win over Mikhail Kukushkin in the first round.

Federer's demise has been predicted for some time, but even at age 34, the Basel native remains one of the best hard-court players in men's singles. He's 27-4 this year on his second-favorite surface (grass remains Federer's specialty), winning tournaments in Cincinnati, Dubai and Brisbane. However, Federer did lose to Albert Ramos-Vinolas last week in the Round of 32 at the Shanghai Masters.

There are seven other players from the ATP Top 16 participating in Basel; Federer's toughest competition should come from fellow Swiss and World's No. 4 Stan Wawrinka, as well as his old nemesis, No. 6 Rafael Nadal. Wawrinka and Nadal are in the bottom half of the bracket, so they'd have to play one another before getting a crack at Federer in the finals. No. 12 Kevin Anderson is the second highest-ranked player in Federer's half of the draw.
