Georgia-Florida Prediction

This is an amazing series matchup for the first weekend of SEC baseball, the No. 1 Gators versus No. 2 Georgia. Florida’s coming off a rough rebuilding season. The Gators definitely look improved with wins over four ranked teams so far this season. Georgia still has stellar pitcher Emerson Hancock and sophomore Cole Wilcox who is averaging over a dozen strikeouts a game. Florida looks much improved this season. They were just young last season. Those players are now more experienced and the Gators have brought in some outstanding freshmen. This one is pretty even. Playing in Gainesville look for the Gators two win two of three. It’s early in the season though. We won’t really know for sure who the stronger teams are until after the third week or so of SEC baseball.
