Current Point Spread & Over/Under Total
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Seminoles are 34.5-point home favorites to knock off the Warhawks, while the over/under currently sits at 53 points.
Florida State hit the board as a 33.5-point favorite but the number was bet up to 34.5. The total, meanwhile, opened at 54.5 but has been bet down to 53.
Public Betting: Which side are public bettors on for this Matchup?
Even though FSU lost quarterback Deondre Francois for the season, that hasn't stopped public bettors from backing the Seminoles on Saturday. Of the tickets currently placed on this matchup, 64% of tickets are on FSU.
OUR PREDICTION: The under has cashed in seven of the Seminoles' last 10 games, is 7-3 in their last 10 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game, and is 4-1 in the Warhawks' last five games in September. There are two things I don't see happening on Saturday. One, I don't see the Warhawks scoring much on this FSU defense. And two, I don't see the Seminoles moving the ball at will without Francios. Thus, I like the under.
