FSU looking to end losing streak
Florida State is coming off back-to-back road losses to Clemson and Wake Forest. The Seminoles are 3-4 overall, 2-2 in the ACC, 2-4-1 against the spread and 4-3 with the under.
The Seminoles have been struggling on defense, allowing 30.7 points and 458.7 yards per game. The offense is near the middle of the pack, averaging 28.6 points and 407 yards per contest. Cam Akers is leading the offense with 773 rushing yards and eight touchdowns. James Blackman has thrown or 1,316 yards and 11 touchdowns while Tamorrion Terry is the leading receiver with 27 catches for 522 yards and six scores.
Orange slip up again
The Syracuse football team has lost back-to-back games following a 27-20 loss at home to Pittsburgh last weekend. The Orange are just 3-4 on the season, 0-3 in the ACC, 2-5 against the spread and 5-2 with the under.
Syracuse is struggling on offense and defense this year. The offense is putting up just 24.7 points and 371.1 yards per game while the defense is allowing 26.1 points and 418.9 yards per contest. Tommy DeVito has thrown for 1,635 yards and 12 touchdowns to lead the offense while Moe Neal is the leading rusher with 370 yards and three scores. Trishton Jackson is the leading receiver with 38 catches for 575 yards and six touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
FUS has hit the under in four straight conference games and in nine of their last 13 games in October.
The Orange are 9-4 with the under in their last 13 road games and 18-7-1 with the under in their last 26 conference games.
These two have hit the under in three straight meetings, and I think it will be the play this time around. Florida State has a respectable offense, but the Seminoles have been facing good defenses in recent weeks. They put up over 30 points in their last two games at home. Syracuse isn’t a defensive juggernaut, but still won’t make it easy on FSU. I think FSU can get to 30 points again, but Syracuse won’t be able to get near that. The Orange are a little too simplistic on offense and haven’t performed on the road this year. FSU should be in line for one of its best defensive showings against this poor offense.
