Raymond Report Insights

  • Chances of Winning (C.O.W):
  • Tennessee boasts a commanding 75% chance to secure a win, compared to Florida's 40%.
  • Chances of Covering (C.O.C):
  • Tennessee has a 50% chance, while the Gators have a more certain 100% likelihood to cover the spread.
  • Chances Game Going OVER (C.O.G.O):
  • The forecast predicts a total score of around 59.15, which leans toward an OVER on the 56.5 game total. Both teams have a 50% chance for this outcome.
  • Market Spread Value (MSV):
  • Tennessee has an MSV of -18.92 while Florida stands at -14.5. This indicates that the market might be undervaluing Tennessee a bit.
  • Psychological Value Index (PVI):
  • Tennessee is currently “BULLISH” after coming off a 3-game winning streak, indicating high confidence.
  • Florida, on the other hand, has a “NEUTRAL” stance, indicating a more unpredictable performance.

Trends to Consider:

Tennessee Volunteers:

  • When playing as a Road team and a favorite, especially after an ATS loss, their ATS record is 8-4-0 and SU is 11-1. This means they have a strong history of bouncing back after an ATS loss.

Florida Gators:

  • Historically, when playing as a Home team and coming off 1 over, their ATS record is a less promising 4-10-0, but their SU record is 12-2. This means while they've won the games, they often haven't covered the spread.

Final Thoughts:

Given the insights from the Raymond Report and historical trends, the Tennessee Volunteers seem to have the upper hand in this matchup. Their solid performance this season combined with their past resilience after ATS losses makes them a solid pick.

However, Florida's 100% C.O.C is something bettors should not overlook. While they may not win outright, they have a strong chance to cover the spread.


  • Moneyline: Tennessee Volunteers (-208)
  • Point Spread: If you're looking for a safer bet, consider Florida Gators +5.5 given their high C.O.C.
  • Over/Under: Lean towards the OVER 56.5 given the predicted total score.

Please note that all bets involve risk. Make sure to bet responsibly and only what you can afford to lose.
