FSU has won six straight meetings with Charleston Southern, but only one game was lined, which FSU covered. The Seminoles are coming off a loss, a tough one at that. FSU should be ready to bounce back and do so in a big way. Charleston Southern is relying heavily on two players for its lackluster scoring total. FSU should be able to lock in on those two defensively and pull away quickly. The public betting is backing Florida State and I agree.
