Two teams from the ACC will be squaring off when the Florida State Seminoles visit the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Both of these teams are coming off of wins in week 5.
When I first looked, I saw the Seminoles favored by about 15.5, but that number now sits at 17.5 and could get to 18. The total went from 62 to 64.5.
Florida State Football
Let’s be real honest here. The only reason the Seminoles get any attention is because of name recognition. The fact of the matter is they are not a good football team and they have not been one for some time now.
FSU picked up their first victory of the season on Saturday when they beat the Syracuse Orange by a score of 33-30. The fact that they struggled to beat a team like that should tell you an awful lot about their program.
Quarterback Jordan Travis was 22/32 for 131 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. That stat line might be sufficient against Syracuse, but it will have to be a heckuva lot better against the Tar Heels.
Before the season started, I heard chatter about how this defense was improved. So far, that statement has proved to be inaccurate at best. In their last 3 games, the Seminoles have allowed at least 30 points. Not to mention, two of those games were against unranked opponents. This unit will have their hands full against the Tar Heels.
North Carolina Tar Heels
I had very high expectations for this Tar Heels squad this year and so far, they have not lived up to them. They have not played terribly, but I am just looking for more out of them. We will see what happens as the season goes on.
UNC easily covered the 19.5 point spread against Duke last Saturday as they walked away with a 38-7 win. Yes, it was not against a good team, but it was one of their better games of the season. They will look to carry that over when they play Florida State.
Sam Howell was a little inaccurate against the Blue Devils, but he still managed to throw 3 touchdown passes and 321 yards. I expect him to have a big game against this poor Florida State defense.
The running game was not that impressive in the Week 5 victory. Ty Chandler was the leading rusher with 53 yards. I expect that part of their game to be more explosive on Saturday.
Similar to the Seminoles, the defense for this team has not been great. They will look to be much sharper on Saturday.

4* Free Week 6 NCAA Betting Pick: North Carolina SU
This is a battle between two teams that had high expectations for the season and are not living up to them. With that said, I look for the Tar Heels to build off of what they did last week against Duke and get this win on Saturday. The spread does not intrigue me for either team. Given how bad Florida State has been against the spread and straight up, I do not have much confidence in them covering. I do feel the Tar Heels could cover, but that is a very high number and I am not sure I want to risk that. I feel more confident with the Tar Heels straight up, even though I have to risk more juice. Give me UNC here.
