Offseason odds: What does Vegas say about FSU? ACC, national championship, Heisman, win total

Expectations are high for Florida State in 2023

Charles Mays/Tomahawk Nation

For the first time in a long time, expectations in Tallahassee have risen to “in the title mix” levels — with plenty of justification as to why.

The hype around Florida State Seminole football for 2023 has been real ever since head coach Mike Norvell’s Seminoles began returning the bulk of its 10-win team, bringing back a national-best 87 percent of its 2022 production (80% on offense, 94% on defense) which includes Heisman Trophy contending quarterback Jordan Travis, star running back Trey Benson, veteran leader defensive tackle Fabien Lovett, potential top 10 pick defensive end Jared Verse and many, many others.

Since then, they’ve added and upgraded through the transfer portal, bringing in names like wide receiver Keon Coleman, defensive back Fentrell Cypress, tight end Jaheim Bell, defensive lineman Braden Fiske, offensive tackle Jeremiah Byers — and also many, many others.

Vegas has reflected those expectations in its offseason odds so far, with Florida State a trendy pick to reach lofty goals across the board. DraftKings currently has FSU with the 7th-best odds to win the 2023 national championship and as the favorite to win the ACC Championship.

Below, we’ve compiled a look at where FSU currently sits in the eyes of Vegas, alongside a comparison of other teams and their outlook.

(All odds are according to DraftKings.)
