Faves Covering When FSU & Florida Play

Florida State Cook NCAA

Florida State and Florida clash Saturday to determine who the best team in the Sunshine State is, but it may be hard to trust the underdog in this one. The past 17 matchups between the Seminoles and the Gators have seen the favorites go 13-4 ATS.

Shark Bites
  • Florida is 1-12-1 ATS in their past 14 home games in November.
  • Florida State is 2-7 ATS in their past nine games following a win.
  • Florida running back Kelvin Taylor has a rushing touchdown in all but one game this season.

How Florida still only has one loss this season is sort of mind boggling. In their past three games, the Gators have played teams with a combined record of 8-22 SU with an average scoring margin of plus-six points.

You never really know what you are going to get from FSU—are you getting the offense that has scored 40-plus points four times this season or the offense that’s been held to 24 or less four times? Last week was the good offense, with the Seminoles putting up 52 points behind five rushing touchdowns.
