Florida State vs. Notre Dame Pick
Will Notre Dame cover as small home favorite vs. Florida State when the two teams square off at 6:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Fighting Irish are now 2-point home favorites over the Seminoles after they opened as 1-point favorites. As for the total, the number hit the board at 155 and that's where it currently sits.
FLORIDA STATE KEY TRENDS: The Seminoles have been an excellent play coming off a win, going 6-2-1 at the betting window in their last eight games off a victory. They're also 5-1 against the spread in their last six games after covering, but where they have struggled for bettors has been as a road underdog. They're just 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven games away from Tallahassee.
NOTRE DAME KEY TRENDS: The Fighting Irish have excelled as a home favorite, covering in eight of their last 10 chances in those situations. They're also 8-3-1 at the betting window in their last 12 games overall and have covered in 15 of their last 22 home games. They're 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games coming off an ATS win as well.
OUR PREDICTION: Mike Brey has gone smaller in the Fighting Irish's last two matchups and has found success. Matt Farrell and V.J. Beachem have been on a roll, combing for 73 points over their last two games. Bonzie Colson also continues to produce double-double numbers and if Notre Dame can find a way to stop Jonathan Isaac and Dwayne Bacon, or at least slow them down, the Irish should come away with a big home victory tonight.
