Florida State A 29-Point Favorite Heading In To ACC Championship Game

Posted by Blake Frazier on 2/4/2014 5:40:49 AM

It really shouldn’t be any surprise that Tallahassee newspapers ran countdowns for the Jameis Winston verdict on their websites, and now that the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles will have their star quarterback for the ACC Championship game this weekend the early celebrations have already started. Florida State is one win away from booking its spot in the BCS Championship game, and many feel the 20th-ranked Duke Blue Devils don’t offer much of a challenge at all. However, that disrespect will only serve as added motivation for a Duke team that has certainly earned its spot in this year’s ACC title game, and they are also getting 29 points on the online sports betting spread leading in to this championship contest.

ACC Championship Game

#20 Duke Blue Devils vs. #1 Florida State Seminoles

Saturday December 7, 2013 – 8:00 PM ET

Bank of America, Charlotte, North Carolina

College Football Sports Betting Line: Florida State – 29

Adding to the circumstances against the Blue Devils is the fact that they haven’t beaten FSU in 18 tries, with the average margin of defeat at 34 points. A lot has been made about how Winston will react to the pressure on him with the recent allegations made against him only adding to that, but he has certainly thrived as a Heisman trophy candidate to this point in the season.

College Football Betting Preview: Duke

Duke certainly deserves credit for coming this far, especially after its situation this season seemed dire following a pair of early losses to Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh. The Blue Devils have bounced back with eight-straight wins to book their spot in the ACC title game, and a big part of that has been the balance they have established on both sides of the ball. Duke ranks fifth in the ACC in both scoring offense and scoring defense, but will obviously be put to the test on both sides of the ball this week. The offense will certainly be pushed by one of the top defenses in the country, and the running back tandem of Jela Duncan and Josh Snead need to establish a strong ground game to give the offense any chance in this game.

There is certainly no shortage of stats to support the Seminoles’ dominance this season, and the fact that they haven’t trailed in a game in more than two months is one of them. Florida State hasn’t trailed in a game since the second quarter of a September 28th game at Boston College, a game they eventually won 48-34. It has been 511:49 minutes of game action since the Seminoles actually trailed, and the combination of Winston leading a talented offense and a defense that has completely dominated at points has been overwhelming for nearly every opponent they have faced. The allegations against Winston certainly hurt from a Heisman perspective, but he has done everything asked of him on the field with 3,490 passing yards and 35 touchdowns.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Seminoles rank second in the nation with 53.7 points per game this season, and first in the country with an average of just 11 points per game allowed. Florida State has absolutely dominated this online betting rivalry over the years, and there is no reason to expect any different this weekend. Winston will be eager to play football and put everything he has dealt with off the field in recent weeks behind him, so look for the Seminoles to attack from the outset and make a statement while securing the ACC title.
