Florida vs. Michigan, Peach Bowl 2018: Prediction, pick, line, spread, odds, watch live stream online
The No. 10 Florida Gators have already far exceeded expectations this season, but they can truly put a bow on their campaign with a major victory over the No. 7 Michigan Wolverines on Saturday afternoon in the 2018 Peach Bowl. While it would seem like this is a rare matchup between two powerhouse programs, it is actually the third time in the last four years they have squared off. The bad news? Florida has never beaten Michigan (0-4) and got routed by UM in the last two meetings.

On a day where many are focused on the College Football Playoff, this is actually the first New Year’s Six showdown to kickoff this bowl season. The Gators earned this opportunity by playing their way into the game with a strong close to the season, while for the Wolverines, this is a disappointment after missing out on a conference title and more.
Game prediction, picks
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh’s offense works well inside its comfort zone. But when teams force the Wolverines to play catchup or go point-for-point, they struggle. Luckily for Harbaugh, Florida’s offense won’t be able to force Patterson to win with his arm. The Gators will get a heavy dose of Evans, Patterson will work off play-action and the Wolverines defense will make it hard for Franks to get anything going. Pick:
