Nearly two years since last appearing in the AP Top 25, the Florida Gators returned to the college basketball rankings in late November, making their first appearance in the poll under head coach Mike White.

At 14-5 and coming off back-to-back SEC losses, Florida has maintained a spot in the poll this week after moving up to a season-best No. 19 a week ago. The Gators are currently hanging on at No. 25, receiving just 47 votes.

UF is currently 10-7-0 against the spread and a nearly-even 9-8 against the over-under in games. To look at its upcoming contests, be sure to head over to Betway.
