The under is 9-2 in Eagles last 11 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Seminoles last 7 games overall. The Eagles are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
The Florida State Seminoles are obviously the more talented team here and should be favored, especially at home. However, FSU has had issues defensively at times up to this point, and the offensive consistency comes and goes. Florida State still has another gear or two to reach before we can say it's a legit contender in the ACC. The Boston College Eagles are also usually a gritty team that does just enough to hang around. That's probably what happens here. A comfortable win for the Noles, but one they have to grind out. Give me the points.
