The No. 12 Florida State Seminoles are favored by 28 points in their upcoming matchup with the Boston College Eagles. Florida State is coming off a 17-16 loss to North Carolina State, and many are betting on a big rebound for Jimbo Fisher's team.

The total for the game is 54 points, a number that hasn't been reached in only two of FSU's six games. The seventh-ranked Seminole offense is averaging 45.2 points per game and going up against the 84th-ranked BC defense, who are yielding an average of 29 points per game. Combine that with the fact that FSU's defense is softer against the pass than the run and BC's passing game is averaging more than 310 yards per game, and you might be looking at a high scoring affair.

The Seminoles have faced the Eagles every year dating back to 2005, with FSU winning four of the seven matchups.
