Event: (399) Georgia Tech +12.5 at (400) Florida State (o/u 52)
Date/Time: Saturday, September 12 at 3:30 p.m. EDT

Obviously, every team that is playing college football wants a full stadium of fan support. But if anyone out there has a chance to benefit from this uniquely quiet atmosphere, it might be the Florida State Seminoles. Things got pretty toxic at Doak Campbell Stadium with fans not showing up, leaving early, and voicing their displeasure with the previous regime. But with all of those distractions aside, Norvell and this version of the Seminoles can focus on becoming a better football team.

This point spread range was a sweet spot for college football bettors last year. Favorites between 7-13.5 points went 126-79-12 against the spread last season, including 69-44-7 against the spread at home.

A few trends, courtesy of The Gold Sheet:

  • Dating back to late 2018, Georgia Tech is 3-11-1 against the spread in their last 15 games.
  • Since 2017, Florida State is 13-23-2 against the spread.
  • While at Memphis, new FSU head coach Mike Norvell was 2-5 against the spread in his last seven games as a home favorite.
