Florida State is coming off of one of their best wins of the season, a 41-21 victory over the Louisville Cardinals. Quarterback Everett Golson is coming off of his best game with the Noles. Golson went 26/38 for 372 yards and 3 touchdowns with no interceptions. Heisman Contender running back Dalvin Cook had another impressive game carrying the ball 22 times for 163 yards and 2 touchdowns. Leading the Seminoles in receiving was Kermit Whitfield who caught 9 passes for 172 yards and 1 touchdown. Florida State will look to continue their roll when they travel to Georgia Tech this weekend.
The Florida State Seminoles are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game. The Seminoles are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game. Georgia Tech is 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 home games. The Yellow Jackets are 0-5 against the spread in their last 5 games overall.
Florida State's offense has been starting to click lately and with their solid defense, Georgia Tech could be in line for another loss. Georgia Tech has not been able to find ways to win lately and their defense has struggled. I think Florida State will rely on Dalvin Cook heaviy and get the win by at least a touchdown. Take FSU to cover.
