Florida Team Defense Preview

They have an elite level defense and fans may not appreciate it because they get so fixated on scoring, dunks, and drama, but this defense is as good as it gets right now. Now that we know what the overall defense looks like, it is time to understand why this defense is the way it is.


Florida Team Offense Preview

You should not have high expectations considering their offensive efficiency is 104.5, but relatively speaking it is still a slightly above-average offense. Now that we know what the overall offense looks like, it is time to understand why this offense is the way it is. They tend to score a bit more off the dribble inside the perimeter than most.


Maryland Team Defense Preview

Their offensive efficiency is 97.8, which makes them a below average offense and that means there is room for improvement, but will they actually improve? This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just an offensive efficiency rating.


The Florida Roster

The Players to Watch for Florida
Myreon Jones 6-3 180 pound Guard
Myreon Jones sports a 15.1 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. In the grand scheme of things, he is an average College Basketball player this season as far as his contributions are concerned.


The Maryland Roster

The Players to Watch for Maryland
Eric Ayala 6-5 195 pound Guard
Eric Ayala sports a 9.7 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. This season, he is a bit of a non-factor on the floor. The hope is that this season he can improve and show what he can do.


Florida Gators

On the season, Florida is rated 24th according to KenPom. It averages 74.1 points per game and is 49th in adjusted offensive efficiency. The Gators are 16th in the nation on the defensive end, holding opponents to just 59.1 points per game.


Maryland Terrapins

Maryland has not only lost its last four games straight up, but it hasn’t covered a spread during that span either, now at 2-7 ATS on the season.


Florida vs. Maryland Betting Pick

Maryland is hungry for a win, and I understand that. But I think this game is more of an opportunity for Danny Manning to see if changes he’s made are working, and if not, what can he do over the 18 days after this game before conference play begins to get them on track.


Money Line
