Florida State is looking to improve its record to 12-0 for the first time since finishing the 1999 national championship season with the same mark, while the team is 6-1 SU against in-state rivals Florida and Miami during the Jimbo Fisher era. The Seminoles are led by a high-powered offensive unit that leads the country in percentage of drives scoring a touchdown, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football odds page. Redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston is the catalyst—leading the nation with a 194.5 pass efficiency rating. Florida State is 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS on the road this season, with all four games going OVER the betting total.
The Seminoles are the only team in the country to rank in the top five in the nation in both scoring offense and scoring defense, which is important to consider when making your college football picks in Week 14. Florida State’s defense is often overlooked due to the video game numbers its offense generates, but it has allowed 20 or fewer points in 32 of its last 39 games of action.
Florida enters its regular-season finale with a 4-7 record, which will ultimately lead to its first losing mark since 1979. Of the 22 starters in last year’s Sugar Bowl, the Gators will have just six of those players available this weekend, while the offense hasn’t had the same starting lineup in any game during the 2013 campaign. The team ranks 111th in the country in averaging 327.9 yards per game, which has led to scoring just 19.9 a contest. Florida is 15-4 SU and 7-12 ATS at home the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 10-8-1 in that situation.
The Gators will need to try to win this game on the ground, as they average 151.9 rushing yards per game, but that number is more than 30 yards less than last year’s mark. Overall, Florida has had players miss 132.5 games this season due to injury, including starting quarterback Jeff Driskel and running back Matt Jones.
Sports bettors will likely back the Seminoles due to the Gators being 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games.
