The Florida State Seminoles have been disappointing this season but they seem to have things going in the right direction as they have won their last four games. FSU hasn’t played any real road games yet this season going 4-0 in neutral site games.

Florida State is 5-0 against the spread in their last five road games, 1-5 against the spread against the SEC, and 7-2 against the spread following a cover.
Auburn is a home dog here but look for them to have a legitimate chance to win this one outright and don’t be too surprised if they do.
