Bet The Florida State Seminoles at -7 Because…
Florida State (2-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) got blown out of the water in its shocking 63-20 loss against Louisville and Heisman front-runner Lamar Jackson on Saturday.
Not only did the Seminoles get held to a pitiful 2-for-13 success rate on third downs, but starting quarterback Deondre Francois has a miserable day by completing just 7 of 18 pass attempts for 101 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
Defensively, the Seminoles allowed the supremely gifted Jackson to complete 13 of 20 passes for 216 yards with one touchdown and one interception while rushing 17 times for an additional 146 yards and four touchdowns.
Bet The South Florida Bulls at +7 Because…
South Florida (3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS) rolled all over beleaguered Syracuse in its 45-20 Week 3 win while easily covering the college football betting line as a 12.5-point favorite as quarterback Quinton Flowers completed 12 of 24 passes for 183 yards and one touchdown.
Running back Marlon Mack rushed nine times for 115 yards and two scores while fellow back Rodney Adams added two rushing scores. Defensively, South Florida forced three turnovers in the win.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
I know South Florida is playing excellent football right now having scored at least 45 points in all three of their games so far, but I’ll be completely stunned if Florida State doesn’t bounce back in a big way to get the SU win and ATS cover.
Not only are the Seminoles 6-3 ATS in their last nine games, but Florida State has also won 18 of their last 22 road games outright.
I know South Florida is 7-1 ATS in its last eight games, but the Bulls are facing the Seminoles at the worst time possible!
