Florida State vs. Florida Free Pick
One week after receiving a scare from Florida Atlantic, the Florida Gators will look to stay in the college football playoff picture with a win against FSU at 7:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Gators are now a 2.5-point home underdog after opening as a 3-point favorite versus the Seminoles. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 43 points.
The Seminoles enter play with a 9-2 record and are 7-4 against the spread this season, including 2-2 ATS on the road. The Gators are 10-1 straight up and 7-4 against the spread, including 3-3 ATS in the Swamp.
There seems to be an overreaction that has taken place due to Florida's near-loss to Florida Atlantic last week. The number has jumped the fence and could continue to climb the closer we get to kickoff. But the Gators have limited opponents to 14 or fewer points in eight games this season and are tied for third in the nation in allowing just 14.5 points per contest. Dalvin Cook will be a huge challenge today but Sean Maguire will have a difficult time moving the ball against this stout defense. Florida's offense is a mess but its defense will create enough scoring opportunities through turnovers and field position for the Gators to get it done today.
