College Football Betting Odds
Northern Illinois Huskies: +13
Florida State Seminoles: -13
For the first time, the MAC is going to be playing in a BCS game. Northern Illinois has had a great run over the course of the last few years, and QB Chandler Harnish passed the torch for this team to QB Jordan Lynch. Lynch had the numbers this year to stick with anyone in the nation, and if the Huskies are going to pull off the upset on the college football betting odds, he is going to have to dominate.
Lynch threw for 2,962 yards and 24 TDs against just five picks, and he rushed for 1,771 yards and 19 scores. A whopping 624 plays went through the hands of Lynch in one form or another this year, an average of 48.0 times per game.
Florida State had a disappointing season relatively speaking. The team was favored by at least a touchdown in all of its games this year, but the team only ended up going 11-2 SU and 3-9 ATS on the college football gambling odds. Still, the Seminoles won the ACC this year, and they were clearly the best team in the conference from start to finish, including beating up the Clemson Tigers in the second half of the game that those two ACC Atlantic Division foes played at the outset of the conference campaign.
FSU is one of the rare teams in the land that ranks in the Top 40 in literally every single major category offensively and defensively. The team played a weak schedule though, and that's why the team is outgaining opponents by 212.6 yards per game. Of course, the most ardent of Florida State naysayers will also say that this is a weak bowl game to fight it out on the college football wagering odds, especially by BCS standards.
Free Pick – The real question in this game is whether Northern Illinois is going to play the role of Boise State against Oklahoma or the role of Hawaii against Georgia. Unfortunately for the Huskies, this moment is just too big for them. They were challenged by Kansas, and now, they are going to be playing against a Florida State team that is big, strong, fast, and crazily athletic. Head Coach Jimbo Fisher has had two good seasons in Tallahassee, and he has led his team to a pair of dominating performances in bowl games. This should be a third. This game won’t be a contest by the half!
