Both teams are in desperate need of a victory and the college football odds at the sportsbook indicate how close a game this should be.
College football betting line has a matchup of a very good defense of North Carolina against the solid offense of Florida State. Usually when these two teams meet in college football betting line games it comes down to the wire. "All of our games have been close, so every point is going to count," said kicker FSU kicker Dustin Hopkins. "I know we've gotten some good (practice) work in. Our timing has gotten a lot better since the beginning of the year, so I think we can go in and do the job."
This college football betting line matchup is one of contrasts. The FSU defense is giving up 426 yards per game in college football odds but North Carolina’s offense is averaging just 282 offensive yards per game. Thursday’s college football betting line game is the first meeting between FSU and North Carolina since 2004. Florida State holds a 14-1-1 lead in the college football betting line series and has won three straight vs. North Carolina. The only victory for the Tar Heels in this college football betting line series was back in 2001.
This college football betting line game is the first Thursday night home game ever for North Carolina. The Tar Heels did play against Bowling Green on Thursday back in 1982 but it was a day game on the college football betting line at the sports book. North Carolina is 4-2 in ESPN Thursday night games. Florida State is 4-4 in Thursday night road games. This is the first of two consecutive Thursday night games for North Carolina as next week they travel to Virginia Tech to face the Hokies in college football odds. Last year the Tar Heels played on Thursday at Rutgers and won 44-12 vs. the college football betting line as T.J. Yates threw for three TD’s and the NC defense had four interceptions.
If Florida State hopes to make a bowl game this season this is almost a must-win game. At 2-4 this college football odds season, the Seminoles really can’t afford to go three games under .500 and expect to finish the season strongly. The game is also critical to North Carolina who is looking for their first college football betting line win in the ACC this season.
