I’m leaning towards Florida State here. I am not running to the window to bet this thing, but the reality is that the Seminoles have had solid road performances in spots as of late, which is far more than we can say for Louisville at this point who could be the worst power conference team in the country. This game is all about backing the lesser of two evils, and for me, that’s Florida State here.
