Florida vs Florida State Prediction & Pick
Florida State's defense is best in the ACC allowing just 293 yards per game, 4.57 yards per play and 18 points per game while sporting the league's best pass defense. The Gators do have a solid duel-threat strong-armed QB in Anthony Richardson, but he's completed just 55% of his passes this season and will struggle some against FSU's dominant defense.
Florida's defense has allowed 413 YPG vs FBS opponents, and the Gators projected to be out-gained in this contest by at least 140 yards. Florida is +8 in turnover margin this season, but haven't taken advantage enough.
Florida State defense’s three-and-out rate of 38.1% is 20th nationally. The 'Noles special teams are one of two teams in the country that is ranked in the top-20 in kickoff return average, punt return average and punt return defense.
Final Score Prediction: Florida State: 31 | Florida: 17

Florida vs Florida State Tech Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Florida State won five straight meetings from 2013-2017, but Florida has won the last three including both against third year FSU coach Mike Norvell. Miami head coach Mario Cristobal leads the 'Canes for the first time in this rivalry.
The Gators are off a mis-leading loss in which they outgained Vanderbilt 445-283 but had untimely penalties, turnovers and miscues. That type of sloppy play will be a real issue against FSU's superior defense.
The line is a bit high, but Florida State is playing their best ball with a clicking offense and superior defense to control the proceedings in this year's rivalry game.
Bet: Florida State -9.5 (-110) and Under 57.5
