OUR PICK: Florida State isn't Charlotte or Syracuse from a defensive standpoint and will provide much more resistance for Jackson and Louisville. That said, after the Cardinals hung 70 points and 62 points in their first two games, respectively, there's no reason to take the under in this matchup with so much offensive firepower on both sides. The over is 4-0 in the Cardinals' last four conference games, is 6-1 in their last seven games overall, and is 4-1 in their lat five games coming off a win.
