BookMaker has the Florida State Seminoles listed as 17.5-point favorites at home against the Syracuse Orange on Saturday afternoon in week 7 of the college football season. Florida State has won nine of the last ten including the previous three matchups in a row while going 6-4 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. Syracuse is 3-2-1 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS on the road, 0-2 ATS as an underdog, and 0-2 ATS in conference games this season while the Florida State Seminoles are 3-2 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS at home, 2-2 ATS as a favorite, and 1-2 ATS in conference games on the year.
Florida State has looked like one of the best teams in college football this season and has won their first three conference games while having dominated the series against Syracuse winning nine of the last ten including the previous three meetings. The Seminoles have also been the better team at covering the spread in the series as they have covered in six of the last ten and two of the last three matchups which is why I am recommending buying the .5 point and taking the Seminoles -17 at home when they play the Syracuse Orange on Saturday afternoon.
