FSU Football: The Seminoles open as favorites on the road against Syracuse

no. 25 Florida State Seminoles football (6-3, 4-3 ACC), fresh off a blowout 45-3 victory over rival Miami (4-5, 2-3 ACC), next faces the road for Syracuse orange (6-3, 3-2 ACC).

The Orange, once a top-15 team, are on a three-game losing streak after stumbling against the Pittsburgh Panthers in a 19-9 loss. Syracuse has especially struggled, amplified by the temporary loss of quarterback Garrett Schrader.

From our sister site SB Nation, Troy Nunes is an absolute wizard:

The Syracuse orange they couldn’t do much offensively against him Pitt Panthersand a badly depleted mob defense could only fight for so long in a 19-9 final. SU’s third straight loss threatens to further snowball a season that started out great but has stalled amid tough competition and an ever-growing injury list.

When your QB gets sacked six times and the only place Sean Tucker could run was directly into the backs of his linemen, it’s pretty obvious that blocking was the main problem. Many fans clamored for #34 to be used more, but that wasn’t the same situation as Clemson. Of his ten runs, Tucker did not pass the line of scrimmage four times. Add in the usual false start issues keeping Syracuse one of the most penalized teams in college football, and it’s no wonder why the ground game never got going.

According to DraftKings, State of Florida is a 6.5 point favorite against the Orange.

The Seminoles are 6-3 against the spread this season, unable to cover against Clemson (+4.5), Wake Forest (-6) and Duquesne (-42).

FSU vs. Syracuse is scheduled for an 8:00 PM kickoff from the JMA Wireless Dome, and the game will be broadcast on the ACC Network.
