#16 Duke at #4 Florida State Odds, Trends and Prediction in Week 8


Week 8 College Football Odds: #16 Duke at #4 Florida State. It has been a bit of a crazy season in NCAA football as we sit at the midway point of the proceedings. | MyBookie Sportsbook | 2023 College Football Betting | Regular Season: August 26 to December 9 | : Tuesday, October 17 to Saturday, October 21, 2023


Teams that we expected to be among the favorites to win it all this year, while several dark horses have emerged as legitimate candidates to be among the final four. I think it’s fair to suggest that the Florida State Seminoles fall into that category. They are now in control of the ACC and sitting in the top 4 right now, but they have a tricky game coming their way this weekend, with the Duke Blue Devils set to descend upon Tallahassee. The Blue Devils are having a solid season and are going to be tough to beat, yet the bookies have the Seminoles in as a 14-point favorite. The point total for this one is set at 49, so let’s take a closer look.

Why bet on the Duke Blue Devils

The Blue Devils, under new head coach Mike Elko, had a transformative year in 2022, finishing the season at 9-4 after winning just 3 games the year prior. The concern was that it may have been a flash in the pan, but Duke looks solid again this season, coming into this game with a 5-1 record. The bigger picture here, though, is that they are 2-0 in the ACC and still very much in the hunt for a spot in the conference championship game, although that might change just a little depending on how things go this weekend. To be honest, their chances of winning here look slim, especially when you consider that they have lost each of their last 8 road games against the Seminoles. They are also just 1-7 ATS in their last 8 versus Florida State but 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The OVER has hit in 4 of their last 5 road games.

Why bet on the Florida State Seminoles

While the Seminoles have rolled to a perfect record this season, they have had a couple of close calls along the way, most notably against Boston College and Clemson, which should give you an idea of how tough it is to beat conference foes. This is another tough one, but the Seminoles will be well aware of how dominant they have been against Duke in recent years, as well as the fact that they are now on a run of 6 straight wins at home. In terms of the spread, the Seminoles have been a good bet in conference games, covering in 10 of their last 14 versus teams from the ACC. They are also 5-1 ATS in their last 6 versus teams from the old Coastal Division. The OVER has hit in 7 of the last 9 for Florida State.

College Football Expert Pick and Series Prediction

While I do like the Seminoles to keep their unbeaten streak alive, I am more than a little concerned with the spread in this one. I think Duke has what it takes to make things difficult for the Seminoles and keep this one close. I am also on the OVER for this game.

Duke Blue Devils 27, Florida State Seminoles 35
