Bet on Florida State at -2 Because…
The Seminoles have the type of defense that could slow down Louisville’s offense. Florida State’s D looked terrible in the first half against Ole Miss in Week 1. The Seminoles allowed Ole Miss to score 28 points, 21 in the second quarter, of that game. FSU held Ole Miss to 6 points in the second half. They ended up winning 45 to 34.
Bet on Louisville at +2 Because…
Louisville QB Lamar Jackson remains the absolute best player in college football. He was sensational again versus Syracuse in Week 2 when accounting for 5 total touchdowns, 1 via a pass and 4 via the rush. Jackson rushed for 199 yards. He passed for 411 yards in the 62 to 28 win. He broke the single game yardage record.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
As good as Louisville’s Lamar Jackson has been, he faces the toughest defense he’s probably ever faced in his college career on Saturday. Florida State absolutely dominated Ole Miss’s offense in Week 1. FSU had an answer for anything that Ole Miss tried to do.
It’s going to be hard for Jackson to get a lot going against Florida State. The Seminole defenders are good enough to keep Jackson from pretending he’s Vince Young every time the Cardinals have the ball. On offense, FSU has one of the best quarterbacks in the nation in freshman Deondre Francois to go along with one of the best running backs in the nation in Dalvin Cook.
Seminoles should easily cover the spread on Sept. 17.
