Tennessee Football at Florida: Five best prop bets to make for Vols and Gators

- Advertisement -

Saturday’s matchup between Tennessee Football and the Florida Gators is very unpredictable because of how wildly different both teams looked from Week 1 to Week 2. However, there are still some constants that have shown up throughout the early part of the season. Using that information, here are the five best prop bets to make in this game.

5. Florida +1.5 first quarter

This game will either be tied, or Florida will have the early lead, in the first quarter. Tennessee always seems to play sloppy early against the Gators because of the magnitude of the game, and this one being at night and in The Swamp will only make that worse. Add in how poorly UT’s offense has looked early each game, and this seems like a solid call.

4. Joe Milton III over 19.5 rushing yards

He only ran three times for seven yards against the Austin Peay Governors, but Joe Milton III was being saved for SEC play. Milton had seven carries for 33 yards against the Virginia Cavaliers, and if Florida sells out to stop the deep pass the way other teams have to this point, Milton will have to rely on his legs.

3. Jaylen Wright scores TD

In the early part of this season, Jaylen Wright seems to have supplanted Jabari Small as the primary running back for Tennessee Football. The Vols like to get the running backs going first with their offense, and that’s not going to change. As a result, not only is Wright an easy bet to score a touchdown, but he may be the best bet to score the first TD.

2. Rickey Pearsall Over there 73.5 receiving yards

Against the Utah Utes, Ricky Pearsall had 92 receiving yards. Last week, he had 123. When these two faced off last year, he went for over 100. Graham Mertz isn’t likely to have a great day, but out of desperation, he’ll chuck a lot of passes Pearsall’s way. Whether it’s trying to come back late or just exposing UT’s secondary, Pearsall will convert on many of them.

1. Jaylen Wright Over 57.5 rushing yards

Again, with Wright as the feature back, Tennessee Football wanting to get the run game going and teams selling out to stop the deep ball, Heupel and Milton will have to stay patient in this game. That means continuing to feed Wright for more and more carries until the defense finally bites. Wright and Small will likely have over 50 yards, but Wright could go for 150.
