Betting on the Florida State Seminoles 3-5 (+16)
The Florida State Seminoles snapped out of a two-game losing streak with a 27-24 win over Syracuse last week. The Seminoles took an early 14-0 lead, but let the Orange get within three points with 3-minutes left in the game. Miraculously they survived thanks to a missed Syracuse field goal attempt at the buzzer (which would have forced O/T).
Florida State outrushed Syracuse 207-149, with freshman running back Cam Akers going off for 199 yards and two TDs on 22 carries.
The Seminoles may be stumbling through what’s left of the season without their starting QB, but they can be counted on to give it all they’ve got to keep Clemson from repeating as national champs.
Betting on the Clemson Tigers 8-1 (-16)
Clemson kept an upset-minded North Carolina State at bay last week. It was touch and go for a moment, with the tigers trailing by 7-0 two minutes into the game and 21-14 deep into the second quarter, but they quickly remembered who they were and went on a 24-7 run (with an interception to boot) to take control.
The Tigers outrushed the NC State 224-153, converted 9-of-18 on 3rd and 4th-down situations and scored TDs on a 77-yard punt return and an 89-yard run from scrimmage. With that game in the pocket, the Tigers can now say they’ve out rushed eight of its nine opponents this season.
This is an important game for Clemson, as they can clinch a spot in the ACC Championship Game with a win this Saturday against Florida State. Will the stress get the best of them?
Florida State is playing with the hopes of becoming eligible for book season while Clemson has the National Championship on the mind. The Tigers aren’t exactly walking over their opponents this season, and thus some experts think the spread on this game is inflated. Smart money takes Florida State and the points.
