TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State Seminoles will welcome the Notre Dame Fighting Irish into town on Sunday as the two face off to close out Week 1 of the college football season.

Betting The Spread: 7.0 Points

The Florida State Seminoles have been going through a bit of a rough patch since the start of the 2018 season. The team has rattled off three straight sub-.500 seasons and with a game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to start the new campaign, online sportsbooks aren’t giving FSU a good shot to start the year with a win.

Florida State vs Notre Dame Spread Odds

  • Florida State Seminoles +7.0 -110
  • Notre Dame Fighting Irish -7.0 -110

FSU’s main offensive attack is on the ground as the team averaged 199.9 rushing yards per game last season. Notre Dame is very similar, but a little better at it as they were second in the ACC with 235.8 rushing yards per game.

Florida State’s biggest struggle, and the reason why they’ll likely continue struggling, is their passing attack that recorded the second-fewest yards per game in the ACC last season (196.8).

Notre Dame will have the Wisconsin transfer, Jack Coan, under center while FSU will have either McKenzie Milton or Jordan Travis running the show. With question marks over both quarterbacks, Notre Dame likely has the edge as an overall roster and should be able to cover the touchdown spread.

Betting The Total: 55.5 Points

In the 2020 season, eight of the Seminoles’ nine games had a total higher than 55 points but only four of Notre Dame’s 11 games went Over the current number. College football betting sites are expecting a game slightly on the lower-scoring side.

Florida State vs Notre Dame Total Odds

  • Over 55.5 -110
  • Under 55.5 -110

With Florida States susceptibility to allowing points (37.5 points allowed per game) and Notre Dame’s ability to prevent them (19.0 points allowed per game), it makes for an interesting line. Notre Dame is expected to get their fair share of points and it may very well come down to whether Florida State can do the same.

Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. EST on Sunday with coverage available on ABC.
