Florida State is coming off a tough loss so that could possibly roll over to this game. However i think Jimbo Fisher will let his team know that they need win out and blow out some teams to have a chance to get back into the playoffs. Syracuse has lost 4 in a row and i dont see them keeping this game close at all. Take FSU to cover at home.
