Florida State Seminoles NCAA Football Betting

Dave Clawson is one of the most underrated head coaches in college football. And Clawson’s Wake Forest program is one of the most unheralded. A deeper dive shows that Clawson is leading the Demon Deacons in their Glory Years. Wake Forest is riding a streak of six consecutive bowl seasons. And last year, the Deacs tied the school record of 11 wins in a season. Wake Forest made the ACC championship game for the second time in its history. That is why the Florida State Seminoles would be well advised to be fully prepared. The Demon Deacons routed Florida State 35-13 as 4.5-point home favorites last year.

The matchup between Wake Forest and Florida State has much to do about branding. Despite their recent success and the struggles of Florida Stage, Wake Forest is an underdog in the minds of casual gamblers.

But to the Wise Guys, the Demon Deacons are one of the best values on the board precisely because the masses ignore Wake Forest.
