The Florida State Seminoles and Wake Forest Demon Deacons face off on Saturday in a Week 3 college football showdown at BB&T Field. In 2019 it was Wake Forest that beat Florida State 22-20.
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons have won the first two games of their season and the offense scored at least 41 points in each of the two games. In the last game against Norfolk State, Sam Hartman completed 17 of his 25 passes for 244 yards and a touchdown. Running back Christian Beal-Smith also had nine carries for 60 yards and a touchdown. Wake Forest on the season is averaging 41.5 points per game while their defense is giving up 13 points per game. In this game if the defense is strong, Wake Forest is going to have no issue coming away with the victory.
On the other side of this matchup is the Florida State Seminoles who have lost their first two games of the year. The first game against Notre Dame was an expected loss, but in the last game, they lost on a last-second touchdown by Jacksonville State. Quarterback McKenzie Milton completed 18 of his 31 passes for 133 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. There were some questions about who would start in this game, but the team has announced that Milton will start. In this game if Florida State wants to come away with the victory, the offense is going to need to be a whole lot better.
Florida State is 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 games overall. Wake Forest is 4-1 against the spread in their last five conference games. Florida State is 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five meetings against the Demon Deacons on the road. The under is 6-0 in the last six meetings played between the two teams.
I think last weekend was a real wake-up call for Florida State. I expect Milton is going to find success in this game against Wake Forest’s defense and that will keep the game close. Florida State might not pull the upset, but they are getting too many points in this one. Back Florida State against the spread.
