Florida State opens touchdown favorite over Florida

New, comments

Vegas favors the No. 3 ACC Atlantic Team over the SEC East champion.

The Florida Gators will visit Florida State Saturday in Doak Campbell Stadium. The game will have a 8 pm kickoff time, and will be broadcast on ABC.

The early betting line is also out, and Florida State is favored over the Gators by seven points. It is important to note that early odds and gambling lines are inherently volatile, as casinos open up wagering options, but at very low dollar limits, in order to gauge the market’s opinion before increasing the bet limits later in the week.

Florida State (8-3) is 6-4 against the spread in 2016, while Florida (8-2) is 4-5. The Gators won the SEC East, the weakest division in major college football yet again, while Florida State finished third in the ACC Atlantic.

Florida State has won three straight over Florida, and is 5-1 against the Gators under coach Jimbo Fisher. Florida is off a win at LSU, while Florida State is off a win at Syracuse.
