Editor's Note - Odds are subject to change.

The line has held mostly steady since its opening in favor of No. 6 Florida (8-1 SU; 4-4-1 ATS) as 23-point favorites in several shops in Las Vegas over LSU (3-5 SU; 4-4 ATS) and the line can currently be found at 22.5 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

The public and sharps appear to be united on this matchup as they both appear to be behind Florida and laying the points. Florida has looked very impressive thanks to the amazing season by senior QB Kyle Trask; the prohibitive favorite (-125) to win the Heisman Trophy at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Trask leads all FBS quarterbacks with 38 touchdown passes and ranks second with 3,243 passing yards, leading the Gators to eight wins in nine games. Throwing for 3-plus touchdowns in every game this season, Trask will have to remain focused on a struggling Tigers team and not get caught looking ahead to the monumental SEC showdown with No. 1 Alabama next weekend.

Florida has reeled off six consecutive victories since their only defeat at the hands of Texas A&M (41-38) back on October 10. Over that span, the Gators have gone 3-2-1 ATS but most recently have failed to enable their backers to profit from the wins going 0-2-1 ATS over their last three contests. LSU on the other hand has lost three of their last four games straight-up this season but will be aiming to defeat their SEC rival for the third time in the last four matchups in the series.
