2013 Sugar Bowl picks and predictions

Sam Greenwood

Installed as a two-touchdown favorite, many experts are even giving the Gators a good shot at beating Louisville by even more than 14 in the Sugar Bowl.

When the Florida Gators take on the Louisville Cardinals in the Sugar Bowl, the Gators will be as much as two-touchdown favorites to claim a victory in the traditionally SEC-friendly bowl game. And around the web, experts are giving the Gators the edge in the SEC-Big East matchup.

ESPN, in picking each of the BCS bowl games, is giving the Gators an even bigger edge, predicting an 18-point victory for the Gators in the matchup.

Picking against the spread, which was installed as 14.5 in favor of the Gators, experts at CBS Sports were a little more forgiving, as four of the six experts think the Cardinals will at the very least come closer than the two-touchdown cushion so many are giving the Gators. Two experts, however, still think that the Cardinals don't have a chance of keeping the game within those two scores.

And over at Yahoo! Sports, it was unanimous support for the Gators, as Pat Forde, Graham Watson and the site's users all favored Florida.
