You don’t exactly need to sit down for this, but we’ve got some breaking news: Florida State is a substantial underdog against the No. 11 Florida Gators. The 6-5 Seminoles will travel to Gainesville for 2019’s Sunshine State Showdown on Saturday, and professional handicappers in the desert don’t expect them to return to Tallahassee with a victory.
Vegas has the ’Noles opening as 18-point underdogs at UF. The 9-2 Gators haven’t lost in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for over a year, when they dropped their 2018 homecoming game against Missouri. FSU has made a nice little second home of Hogtown recently, as the Seminoles have won their last four games at The Swamp. Florida’s last home win over Florida State: 2009. The ’Noles have won seven of the last nine games in the series, overall.
The over/under opened at 53.5 points, meaning the pros anticipate a score, favoring the Gators, somewhere in the neighborhood of 35-17.
Would you bet on the Seminoles, getting 18 points against UF?
