College football gambling fans now wonder if the Seminoles can limp into a bowl game with the NCAA odds as they must win 4 out of their final 6 games for a shot at an invite. Florida State is coming off yet another college football gambling disappointment in their last game on October 10 as they lost to Georgia Tech 44-49 as 3-point home favorites with the NCAA odds.
The loss dropped the Seminoles college football gambling record to 2-4 straight up and 1-5 against the spread.
In normal college football gambling times 44 points scored usually meant that Florida State would send gamblers to the payout window but their defense imploded and allowed the Yellow Jackets 532 total yards and now ranks a humiliating 107th in the nation for total yards allowed.
One positive for the Seminoles has been the quarterbacking of Christian Ponder who has completed 68% of his passes for 1780 yards and 9 touchdowns with just 1 interception. Ponder admits that his team is going through a tough college football gambling period. “We just have to make sure everybody stays focused”, said Ponder.
“It’s pretty difficult. We’re definitely disappointed. The North Carolina Tar Heels are the near college football gambling mirror opposite of Florida State in that they rank 3rd in the nation for total defense but rank a horrible 117th in total offense. The Tar Heels have a college football gambling record of 4-2 straight up and 2-3 against the spread.
They have lost both of their ACC college football gambling matchups in weak fashion to Georgia Tech (7-24) and to Virginia (3-16). Quarterback TJ Yates has been erratic with 7 interceptions compared to just 6 touchdown passes. The Tar Heels are coming off a bye week that followed a win over 1-AA Georgia Southern.
Yates said they needed the extra time. “Florida State is a great opponent, fast and physical”, said Yates. “We are going to need all the time we can have to prepare”. Last year FSU clobbered the Tar Heels 38-16 but failed to cover as 28.5-point home chalks. North Carolina has covered 3 out of the last 4 meetings.
