Pick against the Spread
I know the linesmaker is trying to get Florida money making this line 7.5 and the public is biting. The Gators can run the ball and that appears to be the recipe to compete against the Seminoles and many cappers may be hanging their hat on that. However, the key stat here is Florida’s road pass defense or lack thereof ranking No. 117 in the Nation. Florid Sate rolls in front of the home crowd here.
Take the Florida State Seminoles -7.5
