The No. 14 Florida State Seminoles are huge favorites on the road this weekend against their in-state rival, the Miami Hurricanes. According to OddShark, the Seminoles opened as a 17.5-point favorite, but that number has since moved to 20.5 points.

Florida State (6-1) has been dominant for most of the season, save for a stunning 17-16 loss on Oct. 6 at North Carolina State. The Seminoles are averaging 46.0 points per game while only giving up 11.6 points per game. However, they are just 3-3 against the spread. The Seminoles clobbered Boston College last week 51-7.

Miami (4-3) is coming off a couple of rough losses. Two weeks ago, the Hurricanes were destroyed by Notre Dame 41-3 at Soldier Field. Last week, the Hurricanes lost a tight one to North Carolina, 18-14.

Florida State has won the last two matchups between the two teams, including last year's 23-19 victory in Tallahassee.
