Why Bet The Florida Gators to beat the Florida State Seminoles
Florida has won five of their last six games and comes into this contest off a hard-fought 16-10 win over LSU last weekend as a 14-point underdog no less. The Gators stopped the Tigers on the 1-yard line late in regulation to seal the deal over their longtime SEC opponents.
On the season, young quarterback Luke Del Rio has passed for 1,358 yards with eight TD passes and eight interceptions. However, the transfer from Oregon State, will not get the call in this affair because of injury, giving Purdue transfer Austin Appleby his third straight start. Florida averages 25.2 points per game to rank 89th nationally in scoring, while also ranking a stellar fourth in points allowed (13.0 ppg).
Why Bet The Florida State Seminoles to bet the Florida Gators
Florida State has won three straight and comes into this contest off a 45-14 blowout over Syracuse this past weekend. Running back Dalvin Cook rushed 28 times for 225 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Seminoles to victory.
For the season, quarterback Deondre Francois has passed for 2,990 yards with 17 TDs and just five interceptions. The Seminoles average a healthy 35.6 points per game to rank 30th nationally while allowing 25.4 points per contest defensively to rank 46th overall.
Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
While Florida has an elite defense, for me, the streaking Florida State Seminoles are the easy pick to win and cash in against a Florida team that really struggles to score the ball this season.
Florida is also 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against ACC teams while the Seminoles have gone 4-1 ATS in their last five non-conference games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games and a blistering 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Gators win and find a way to narrowly cover the spread.
