The Florida State Seminoles are the better team and should be favored, but they’re in rough form at the moment, and they’re losing their last five games by an average of eight points. The Pittsburgh Panthers are a team I haven’t been high on since the start of the season, and they’re not playing any better. However, I can’t lay double-digit points with FSU in its current form. It’s Pitt and the points or pass for me.
