Florida State has won five straight games and feature a diverse offense that scores 34.9 points per game with Christian Ponder at quarterback. Ponder has been bothered by injuries but is expected to play. The Seminoles have a balanced offense, Chris Thompson, Jermaine Thomas, and Ty Jones providing a strong running game. FSU hasn’t given-up more than 19 points in any game and are a top-25 defense.
The Wolfpack, though, have an offense that has scored 30 points or more in five games, including a loss to Virginia Tech. That offense is led by quarterback Russell Wilson, who has thrown 18 touchdown passes, and has spread the ball around to a bevy of receivers, including Owen Spencer who has gained 524 yards in receiving. Mustafa Greene is the leading rusher with over 400 yards and 4 touchdowns.
This could be a high-scoring affair with two strong offenses and Vegas has an over/under of 57 points for the game. Ponder and Wilson, dueling at quarterback, makes for an attractive match-up but the FSU defense has enough playmakers to make things tough on Wilson. Look for FSU to control the Wolfpack attack, cover the spread, and win on the road.
