(545) Boston College at (546) Florida State

Who Oddsmakers Like: Florida State. According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Seminoles are 7.5-point home favorites to beat the Eagles, who also opened as 7.5-point road underdogs. Unlike the point spread, the total has moved off the original number posted by oddsmakers. After hitting the board at 159.5, the over/under dropped to 156 at the majority of sportsbooks.
Who Public Bettors Like: As of Saturday morning, 59% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks is on Florida State to cover the point spread. The majority of the money wagered online is also on the Seminoles, who are up to -8 at some books.
Who We Like: FSU's leading scorer, Terance Mann, is currently in a shooting slump. In the Seminoles' recent loss to Clemson, Mann was held to three points on 1-of-9 shooting. He's averaging just 6.3 points per game while making 1-of-10 from 3-point range over a recent six-game stretch. With Florida State off its game and Boston College offering the better defense, I see this game falling under the betting total.
