The Florida State Seminoles could use an upset win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Florida State Seminoles have won seven of their last 10 home games. Jordan Travis is completing 52.2 percent of his passes for 864 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions. Travis and James Blackman have combined for six touchdowns and eight interceptions.

The Tigers are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Seminoles are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Tigers last 4 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Seminoles last 10 home games. The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Florida State and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 meetings.
The Clemson Tigers should be angry after the Notre Dame loss, and they've had an extra week to prepare for this game while also working Trevor Lawrence back into the starting role. The Florida State Seminoles have fallen off like Big Mac toppings, as their defense is one of the worst in college football and the offense has no consistency while being ranked 92nd in passing yards. I'm not much of a chalk eater and I hate laying these massive numbers, but it's hard to make a case for Florida State, especially with Clemson as healthy as its been in weeks.
This game could get very ugly for the Noles.
