Senior forward Colin Castleton leads Florida with 15.6 points and 9.2 rebounds per game, while senior guard Phlandrous Fleming Jr. is scoring 10.6 points. The Gators have covered the spread in four of their last five home games against LSU. 

What you need to know about LSU

LSU has faced three straight ranked opponents to open conference play. The Tigers came up short at Auburn in their SEC opener, but they have responded with wins over Kentucky and Tennessee. Star guard Xavier Pinson sprained his MCL in the win over the Volunteers, so he is going to miss Wednesday's game.  

Pinson is the team's third-leading scorer and top assist man, averaging 10.9 points and 4.7 assists. Sophomore forward Tari Eason is scoring 16.2 points and is grabbing 7.6 rebounds. LSU has now covered the spread in 16 of its last 20 games dating back to last season.
