Every year at BetAnySports, the betting action is fast and furious when college football hits rivalry week. Aside from having major bowl game implications, the rivalry matchup between the Florida Gators and the Florida State Seminoles has a major effect on recruiting within the state of Florida. Of course, it also affects online sports books and betting lines throughout the world. The game is scheduled for Saturday, November 26 at 8:00 pm EST.
In the NCAA football betting odds that have been posted on this game by the people at BetAnySports, Florida State is the favorite.
Current Line: Florida State -7.5, O/U – 45
Heading into this particular game, the Gators have already clinched the title in the SEC East and will go forward to the SEC Championship game next week where the will meet the #1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. Considering the strength of its schedule, Florida looks like they will get an invitation to one of the major BCS bowls, win or lose against Alabama, if they can win this game. That gives them plenty of incentive to come out firing.
The problem for Florida is they lack the kind of explosive offense that is usually needed to win a close game like this. The offense ranks #192 in the nation, which is a bit problematic for a team ranked in the top 15. Conversely, the Seminoles come into the game with the #34 offense in the nation on the strength of a passing game that averages 279 YPG
For the Seminoles, they won’t be making a trip to the ACC Championship game due in large part to a mid-season slump that saw them lose key games to the North Carolina Tar Heels, Louisville Cardinals and Clemson Tigers. Over the last three games, they have finally looked like the team everyone expected them to be when they opened the season ranked #5 in the nation. The reality is the Seminoles shine when facing inferior competition, but seem a notch below the best. With all of that said, a victory in this game leaves them with a shot at major bowl invite.
Online Sports Betting Game Analysis: Revenge is going to be a big factor in this year’s game. Last year, the Seminoles went into Gainesville and took it to the Gators in a lopsided 27-2 victory. In the process, they knocked the Gators out of any chance to make it into the National Championship playoffs. The easiest way to get past a major disappointment like that is to come back the following year and get a measure of revenge. By the numbers, the game looks pretty even. The Gators are 5-5 ATS while the Seminoles have gone 6-5 ATS. If there were any trend worth noting, it would be that the Gators are 1-3 ATS on the road. It’s also worth noting that seven of Florida’s games this year have gone well below the total posted here. That might be a number worth looking at. Over its last six games, the Seminoles have allowed 20 or fewer points five times. The game looks to tight to call versus the spread, but the O/U might offer some value.
