Why Bet on Samford?

Why should you bet on Samford in Week 2? The best reason to back Samford is because they looked fantastic in their week 1 blowout win. The Bulldogs took out the Shorter Hawks 66-9 while outscoring their opponents 45-0 in the first half alone. Quarterback Devlin Hodges had a fantastic game by going 25-of-36 for 330 yards with five TD passes. Running back Roland Adams led rushing attack with 71 yards and one score while wide receiver Kelvin McKnight added 119 yards and a pair of TD grabs in the win. Now, as they get set to take on a much more prominent Florida State program, Hodges says he’s approaching the game like any other. “The one thing I’ve been telling people is, it’s the same size field, just in front of a lot more people,” Hodges said this week.

Why Bet on Florida State?

Is FSU a safe bet for NCAA Football Week 2? Why should you bet on Florida State in Week 2? The best reason to bet on Florida State is that they’re the much bigger program with far better athletes. Another good reason is that the Seminoles are definitely looking to avoid a massive loss in this contest after dropping their opener against a very good Virginia Tech team that is 12th in the national rankings. The Noles got manhandled in their 24-3 Week 1 loss in Willie Taggart’s debut, at home no less. Quarterback Deondre Francois went 22-of-35 line for 233 yards, but tossed three super costly interceptions in his return after missing virtually all of the 2017 regular season. Cam Akers led the Florida State 82 rushing yards on 14 carries.

Expert Analysis and Prediction

The last time these two teams met back in 2010, Florida State rolled to an emphatic 59-6 win over the Samford. With that said, the Noles are the easy pick to beat the Bulldogs again, but not by nearly as much this time around. Samford has gone 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a straight-up win while the Seminoles have gone 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games in September. While there are no odds listed for this contest right now, I’m expecting Florida State to win this one and win it fairly easily. NCAA Football Week 2 Pick: Florida State 42 Samford 17
