The Louisville Cardinals and Florida State Seminoles face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at the Bank of America Stadium. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Louisville vs Florida State prediction.
Florida State is Tate Rodemaker’s Team Now
With Jordan Travis out for the season, Florida State’s chances to make the playoffs now rest on the shoulders of quarterback Tate Rodermaker. Florida State was tested in the last game against the Florida Gators, but they ended up winning 24-15. Rodemaker completed 12 of his 25 passes for 134 yards. There are still a lot of questions about him here, but he’s going to need to be better than he was against the Gators. Florida State is averaging 38.8 points while their defense is giving up 16.8 points per game. The defense could really help out by creating a couple of turnovers.
Florida State Betting Trends
- Florida State has won each of its last 18 games.
- Florida State has failed to cover the spread in three of its last four games as a favorite against non-AP-ranked teams.
- Five of Florida State's last six December games as a favorite have gone OVER the total points line.
How Does Louisville Bounce Back
Not many expected Louisville to lose their last game against the Kentucky Wildcats, but the defense struggled and they ended up losing. In the second half against Kentucky they gave up 31 points and that led to the seven point loss. Jack Plummer completed 24 of his 33 passes for 242 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Louisville on the season is averaging 33 points while their defense is giving up 20 points per game. Jack Plummer on the season has thrown for 2,952 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.
Louisville Betting Trends
- Louisville has won four of its last six games as an underdog.
- Louisville has failed to cover the spread in four of its last five games as an underdog at neutral venues.
- Each of Louisville's last three games against non-AP-ranked teams have gone OVER the total points line.
Louisville vs Florida State Prediction
I am not sold on Rodemakers and I do expect Louisville is going to bounce back here. Louisville is an elite offensive team and they are going to have no issue running up the score again here. I do expect the Cardinals defense is going to step up against Rodemaker here, and that is going to be the difference here as Louisville is going to get the job done. I don’t think you are going to need to take the points here. Back Louisville on the money line.
