Florida State has generated a lot of headlines this season but is nowhere close to being a contender really. Do they even deserve to be given the benefit of the doubt anymore? This one will help determine.
Louisville is discovering that losing a player as dynamic as Lamar Jackson affects everything. This team has become one of the worst offensive teams in the nation and there is no obvious easy fix.
Florida State Seminoles
Beating Northern Illinois hardly means the Seminoles are good again. Sure they did cover but after losing at Syracuse and scoring just seven points the market could not have been any lower than it was, really. This is still a team without a ton going on for it. .
The Huskies are actually a pretty good defensive team but this team should be able to run the ball better. Cam Akers was a top recruit but we have not seen much from him this season. QB Deandre Francois has been good in wins and terrible in the losses.
In terms of overall talent this FSU team is better than Louisville but the same was true for Syracuse and Samford and neither of those games turned out the way we thought, though at least they did beat Samford. They are a tough team to be comfortable with right now. .
All preseasos long it was all abou how “Puma” Pass was going to be the next great quarterback developed by Bobby Petrino and how the Cardinals were going to be “just fine”…they aren’t.
The losses have definitely not looked good (though one was to Alabama) but what has been very surprising is how poor the offense has been. They are not even averaging 300 yards per game. Jackson used to average that in a half all bu himself it seemed. .
The defense has been respectable but let’s face it, that group hasn’t won a game since Charlie Strong was the coach. The only good thing is that FSU has no offensive identity so they are pretty lost too. This once could be a little ugly.

I am going with the Seminoles because it just seems more likely that they start playing to their talent level. .
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Florida State -6.5
Look for them to be conservative and just try and ram the ball down the Cardinals throat. They can do it against Louisville too. I think.
The FSU defense is not the monster they have been in the past but they won’t need to be based on what we have seen from the Cardinals attack.
