It will be a clash of styles in Gainesville on Wednesday, as an up-tempo Alabama bunch known for its guard play will look for a road win against a Florida Gators bunch that is looking to slow things down with its stout defense.

Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Florida Gators (-1, 149)

The Gators are 11th in the country in points allowed on a per-possession basis with a defense that is 10th in percentage of possessions that end with getting a steal.

Overall, Alabama is 23rd in the country in points scored on a per-possession basis, but is just as efficient on the road as at home, rating seventh in this category in games away from home.

Florida has been dominant in the paint, blocking 10.6 percent of shots faced, which ranks seventh among Division I teams, but Colin Castleton is the only player averaging more than 4.2 rebounds per game.

Alabama has an edge on the glass and ranks fourth in 2-point shooting percentage. This Crimson Tide team that is 7-4 in true road games since the start of the 2020-21 season will collect another road win on Wednesday.

Pick: Alabama + 1
