- The Florida State Seminoles are now number 10 in odds to win the national championship at +2000 and will have to beat notable teams like Clemson and LSU to keep their dream alive.
- QB Jordan Travis has seen his Heisman odds jump from +1800 to +1000, now putting him as the second overall favorite.
- The Seminoles brought back more production from their team last year than any other school, setting them up with a great mix of veteran upperclassmen and promising underclassmen.
TALLAHASEE, Fla. – The Florida State Seminoles along with standout QB Jordan Travis have slowly but surely seen their odds increase over the course of the offseason. The Seminoles have recently moved up to a top 10 team by odds to win the National Championship while Jordan Travis has now moved behind only Caleb Williams (+400) in odds for the Heisman Trophy.
Despite many players being eligible to go to the NFL draft, FSU managed to bring back nearly all of them, including prospective first round pick Jared Verse.
With almost the entire core of their team coming back for one last season together, online betting sites may be likely to continue moving the odds as the offseason continues.

Seminoles Return Vast Majority of Production
By far the biggest boon for the Seminoles’ chances at winning the National title is the consistency and talent of their returning roster. Among all teams in the NCAA, the Noles returned 87% of their team’s total production, the most in the nation.
Aside from Michigan and FSU, no other team in the top 10 of championship odds were also in the top 10 of returning production. This may bode especially well in the early season of next year, where FSU will have a coordinated team with high chemistry while many of the others may be working towards building that cohesiveness with newer players.
Notable Games on Schedule
FSU will go into next year with a relatively easy schedule, ranked in the bottom half of the nation for strength of schedule. This offers a good sign for FSU’s championship aspirations as they are more likely to be able to sneak into the College Football Playoffs if they manage to beat the best teams on the docket.
The season opener against LSU in particular is a must-win game that will set the mood for the season. Last year the Seminoles beat the Tigers 24-23 in a nail-biter. That game will surely be one of the biggest of the entire season and is crucial for the Seminoles to start off the year right.

Past that, most teams seem quite beatable for the Seminoles but they do face two teams which they lost to last year being Clemson and Wake Forest. Wake Forest should not present too much of an issue despite the loss last year, since the Demon Deacons would go on to end the season poorly and finish outside of the top 25 while the Seminoles finished the season winning six straight and ranked #11.
Clemson on the other hand will be FSU’s most important ACC game, much how it is every year. The Noles came up short of the ACC Atlantic title last year, but may have a window of opportunity with Clemson losing many more notable players to the NFL draft than FSU has. Still, Clemson is by far the biggest ACC threat, evidenced by the +1600 Championship odds given to them by online sportsbooks.
Overall, the Seminoles will go into the 2023-2024 season off the heels of their best season since 2016 and will be led by Heisman candidate Jordan Travis along with a bevy of returning stars like Jared Verse.
While they remain a relative longshot for the title, it is difficult to not look forward to what Florida’s top team will do and how they will challenge for the ACC title. At +2000 odds, the Noles will figure to be a major profit maker in the event they put it all together for a magical championship run.
