Vegas has changed its stance on the upcoming contest between No. 8 Florida and No. 14 Florida State. The Gators opened as 3-point favorites to beat the ‘Noles on Saturday, but as of Monday morning, Vegas now likes Florida State. The ‘Noles are now listed as 2-point favorites over the Gators.
While it’s exciting to see Florida State as the new favorites for ‘Nole fans, it’s important to keep in mind that odds makers create betting lines on games that will spark interest and, and then they pick a spread that will cause betters to put their money down.
The change likely stems from Florida State’s success on offense the last couple of weeks against N.C. State and Chattanoga, where as Florida struggled mightily on offense last week during a shaky 20-14 overtime victory over FAU. The line switch is still interesting though, and we’ll continue to keep an eye on it as the game gets closer.
