The #16 Florida State Seminoles are dialed in on both sides of the ball, scoring 38+ points the last four games while holding their opponents to 17 points or less in all four contests over that span. FSU (8-3) looks like the better team here, but the Florida Gators (6-5) – although inconsistent – are also dangerous in this rivalry game. The Gators have won three straight in the Florida vs Florida State head to head matchup.
Before Betting on Florida vs Florida State
Florida has struggled with consistency all season, beating then #7 Utah in the season opener but bookending that with a 31-24 loss at Vanderbilt last week after the Commodores had just one conference win prior to that.
The Gators had averaged 39.5 ppg their previous two before the loss to Vandy, and QB Anthony Richardson had his second 400+ yard passing game of the season last week. Florida State also has a top five passing defense in the nation allowing just 155.4 ypg.
FSU didn’t have much of a chance to make the ACC Championship Game considering Clemson went 8-0 in the Atlantic, but the 8-3 Seminoles are staring down a pretty solid bowl game – especially if they can get to 9 wins on Friday night. Florida State has been hot down the stretch outscoring opponents 173-39, with their closes game over that span being a 41-16 victory over Georgia Tech.

Florida vs Florida State Prediction & Pick
Florida State is just too good in this spot, ranking in the top 17 in the country in both yards gained and yards allowed. There’s no better time to end a 3-game losing streak to the Gators and FSU wants not just to win, but to win big.
Pick: Florida State -9.5
