Against The Spread Pick
The Florida State Seminoles will begin their ACC Tournament campaign as the No. 1 seeds on Thursday, barring any change in stance by the conference regarding the status of this event. Florida State is 6-1 in its past seven games, with its lone loss during this stretch coming at the hands of none other than Clemson. On the bright side for the ‘Noles, they destroyed the Tigers 72-53 when the festivities were held in Tallahassee. They also followed up that recent setback with back-to-back victories over Notre Dame on the road and Boston College by 18 points. Devin Vassell and Patrick Williams will be the two most talented players on the court in this quarterfinal contest and Clemson may struggle to compete in the second of a back-to-back situation. The Seminoles are 5-1 ATS in their last six overall, 4-1 ATS in their last five against opponents with winning records, and 11-5-2 ATS in their last 18 at neutral sites. FLORIDA STATE will likely cover the spread.
Over Under Pick
Florida State is averaging 76.5 ppg in its past two games. Although the Seminoles do not have one clear-cut go-to guy, they have offensive weapons all over the court. The over is 8-3 in the Tigers’ last 11 against opponents with winning records and 9-4 in their last 13 at neutral sites. It is also 10-4 in the Seminoles’ last 14 overall, 8-3 in their last 11 against opponents with winning records, and 10-3 in their last 13 as favorites. Expect this one to go OVER the total.
