mario-pender-ncaa-football-clemson-florida-state-850x560

The current number one team in the nation Florida State Seminoles play against the Syracuse Orangeman that has became somewhat of a tradition over the years. Although Syracuse has not fared well over the previous years against the spread playing Florida State this year might be different as the bookmakers have adjusted the lines based on this years performances. Within this review I will be producing predictions and other betting documentation to help assist you on making a wiser educated bet.

For A Florida State Victory

Offense is key when it comes to the number 1 rank team in the country. Florida State needs to stay focused and do what they do best on the offensive side of the field. Assuming they can do such they will have no problems getting past the Syracuse Orangeman.

For A Syracuse Orangemen Victory

Syracuse has their hands full against the Seminoles but like any other team with proper training and evaluation they can be defeated. Syracuse will not win the time of possession stat but could possibly win special teams and turnover ratio. The Orangeman will need some luck but it’s possible.

Game Day Analysis

ESPN will be airing this game Sat October 11th 2014 at noon Eastern time. Americas Bookie currently has the Seminoles as a 23.5 point favorite with a total around 53. The Seminoles come into the game with a 5-0 record and the Orangeman with a record of 2 and 3.

Florida State vs Syracuse Prediction

Although Syracuse is an off and on team only being allotted 23.5 points statistically is below the medium threshold on a value wager. I predict the Florida State Seminoles will defeat the Orangeman 51-23 with the Seminoles covering the spread by only a few points. The bet on the over 52 would be the wiser bet as they have went over the total 4 out of the last 6 matchups.
