Wow. The Seminoles entered this season with high expectations and now they are just looking to save their season. When they played Oklahoma it was honestly one of the most physical games I had seen in a very long time. Both teams loaded with talent, in front of a national crowd put on a great game. Oklahoma was clearly the better team that night even before the Nole’s starting QB EJ Manuel had to leave the game but FSU definitely made their presence known.
Florida St followed the loss to the Sooner’s up with a road loss at Clemson. Excuses could be made and legitimately so that they were still banged up form the Sooner’s game and playing a freshman QB Clint Tricklett on the road. Also true is the fact that Clemson has a very solid team and were looking to establish themselves as a contender for the ACC this year.
In both of those losses Seminole fans could at least take resolve in the fact that both teams were better than average teams as well as injuries to the Nole’s. What no-one in support of FSU and quite possibly even your average football fan could have predicted was that Florida State would lose a third straight game and to Wake Forest of all teams. I don’t mean any disrespect to Wake Forest but come on!

Florida State vs Duke Betting Prediction
So now this week FSU is on the road again at 3-2 Duke. This is an improved Duke team and FSU is a walking wounded both mentally and physically, so do the Devils have a chance?
There is a better chance that gas prices will return to $1 per gallon than the Duke Blue Devils beating FSU this weekend. More possible but still less probable is that Duke will cover the 13.5 points as well.
The ACC Title won’t reside in Tallahassee this year but the season is not over for the Nole’s. There is still time to save their season and more importantly their pride. I expect them to set the tone early here and go on to an easy cover. Looking for a 45-17 type game this week.
