College football betting news has been dominated this week regarding the NCAA football betting status of FSU coach Bobby Bowden as the Seminoles are quickly imploding.
Despite their problems Florida State is a 2.5-point NCAA football betting favorite for this one. The game can be seen on ESPN2.
Florida State has a college football betting record of 2-3 straight up and 1-4 against the spread. The Seminoles have lost 2 straight college football betting appearances including last week at Boston College 21-28 as 3.5-point favorites. The Seminoles have been a horrible home commodity as of late with a 0-3 mark against the spread. Their last home game was a college football betting disaster at the hands of South Florida in which they lost 7-17 while looking inept in the process. Florida State ranks only 61st in NCAA football betting for scoring and their defense ranks 60th in college football betting for points allowed. All of this is a far cry from their glory days under Bowden just a decade ago when they were among the elite programs in college football betting.
Georgia Tech is an up and coming college football betting commodity under 2nd year head coach Paul Johnson. The Yellow Jackets were sluggish out of the gate this year but have steadily improved to now have a college football betting record of 4-1 straight up and 2-2 against the spread with payouts in their last 2 games. Tech won at Mississippi State last week 42-31 as 5.5-point favorites. Tech is something of a throwback team as Johnson brought his option offense with him from Navy where he had a highly successful stint as college football betting coach. The Jackets rank 6th in the nation for rushing yardage and are led by quarterback Josh Nesbitt, who has 363 yards rushing and 712 yards passing. Jonathan Dwyer is their top rusher with 409 yards and a 6.3 yards-per-carry average.
The Yellow Jackets have stunned the Seminoles with 5 college football betting payouts in their last 6 head to head meetings.
