Our Prediction:

Central Florida will win

Stanford – Central Florida Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 15:30

Florida does a decent job of getting good touches with Rhamat (Alhassan) and (Rachael) Kramer. I think (Shainah) Joseph has improved a lot. They like to read block and they are quick laterally. Coach Says: Advantage Florida. The plan used to be to attack her down the line because her hands werent always over the net and you could tool her. They are pretty good at going pin to pin. Now, she puts herself in a good spot and has improved a lot as a blocker.

Shes very hands on. Shes feisty. Shes really good at getting the team focused on the next ball. Coach Says: Advantage Stanford. I can see Florida starting the match not serving Hentz then going at her late in the set when she doesnt have any rhythm. Thats when liberos usually mess up, after not being passed all set then its 24-23. Shes not afraid to get on girls about going hard. The challenge for Florida is to be more dynamic and mix it up. Shes going to do what shes going to do. Morgan Hentz is big time. She does a lot of things that go unoticed, like getting out of system sets, and she still serves tough even with that wrap on her hand. CK (Caroline Knop) is Floridas emotional leader. I think she has a broken pinky and is still playing well.

Doc's Picks Service

The Cardinal are the defending national champion who put together a tremendous regular season with losses to Penn State (twice) and Washington. No team can make another change its strategy as much as Stanford can. Florida is one of the better blocking teams, especially with Rhamat Alhassan and Rachael Kramer in the middle, and Cheyenne Huskey going front row at setter. PVB Outlook: Heres what makes us so eager to see this clash. Carli Snyder is due for a better match than against USC, while Shainah Joseph is capable of hurting Stanford. It started from Day 1, with victories over Texas and Nebraska and showed most recently with the heroic comeback over USC. Stanfords block and back row defense with Hentz always gives Stanford a leg up in those areas. Thats not the real reason though why I wouldnt want to play Florida. We saw what happened to Nebraska in last years Final Four against Texas. Part of that will depend on who Joseph gets matched against, Plummer or Meghan McClure? There is no doubt the Big Ten rematch between Nebraska and Penn State is the more attractive matchup in terms of history, but there are no two teams scarier to play right now than Stanford and Florida. Its also impossible to replicate what Morgan Hentz can do at libero. They know how to win at this time of season because of their experience and they are as physically imposing as it comes, led by National Player of the Year candidate Kat Plummer. Its hard to replicate in practice what its like to have the 6-6 Plummer attacking, along with 6-8 Merete Lutz and 6-5 Audriana Fitzmorris. With Stanford, its kind of obvious. Heres why. Its more because the grit and fearlessness the Gators have exhibited this season is legit! Plummer blocking Joseph will be a fun matchup to pay attention if and when it happens. Its like Florida is playing with house money at this point and thats always a dangerous spot for someone like Stanford to be in.

But bettors shouldnt shy away from taking the Cardinal to bounce back, even with the Knights looking every bit as dangerous on offense as they have over the past few years. Stanford has managed to cover the spread in seven of its last 10 games in Week 3, and has gone 28-8 SU in its last 36 games in the month of September.
