FSU football enters the game as -6.5 betting favorites with an over/under points total of 49.5. Those odds imply a 28-21 win for the Noles.
The odds also take into account that it’ll take place in the Swamp. If this game were at Doak Campbell, the spread would be more like -9.5.
That’s where these factors I’ve described come into play. If FSU can play a clean game, avoid turnovers, avoid penalties in critical situations. If they can score touchdowns in the red zone instead of field goals(unlike Missouri last week).
I think they should win this game handily. As mentioned, the Noles have the edge in every major category on paper. It’s the unknown of how the quarterbacks will play that will likely determine much of this game.
I like FSU’s defense matching up with Florida’s offense way more than how Florida’s defense matches up against Tate Rodemaker. Which one will execute the best?
I’m going to go with the guy with more experience in the system and playmakers all around him.
