FSU Has Dominated SU and ATS In Tallahassee

FSU can finally see the end of a brutal stretch that sees them play six ranked teams in a row. With a win over Louisville Saturday, Florida State will have gone 5-1 SU in that six-game span, which may be the most impressive stretch we witness all season. The Seminoles have the luxury of rounding out this stretch of games by playing in Tallahassee, which is good news for an FSU team that has gone 16-0 SU and 13-3 ATS in their past 16 home games.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in Florida State’s last four games.
  • Florida State is 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games with 2 days off between games.
  • Louisville is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after winning the previous game in a matchup.

Florida State’s offense ranks as one of the best in the nation, with the ‘Noles averaging 86.3 ppg while shooting 50.5 percent from the floor. Dwayne Bacon continues to be the leader of the team, but highly touted freshman Jonathan Isaac may be the best player for FSU this season. Isaac, who is rocketing up NBA draft boards, is finding his groove with the power forward tallying 40 points, 22 rebounds, seven blocks and four steals in the past two games.

It wasn’t always pretty for Louisville in their first game without Quentin Snider, but the Cardinals got it together and exposed a weak Clemson defense in their last outing. Louisville ultimately got it done thanks to their stifling defense and great paint play, something that has caused FSU issues this season. Without Snider, several Louisville players stepped up with five members of the team scoring double-digit points against Clemson.
