Bold Predicition: Florida State Won’t Cover the 70.5 Point Spread Against Savannah State

Michael Garcia - September 7, 2012

By now you've heard that Oklahoma State beat the crap out of Savannah State last weekend, 84-0. Embarrassing? Sure, for both schools. OSU didn't have to run it up, but then again, Savannah State was outmatched at every level of the game, no matter if it was 1st or 3rd stringers out there. Not only was it 84-0, but OSU covered the 67.5 point spread, which at the time was believed to be the largest ever.

So Savannah State's reward, besides the $380,000 or so they made for that game, is lining up this weekend against Florida State in Tallahassee. The spread for that game is 70.5, now the largest spread in the history of college football betting. Who should you lay your money on, if that's how you like to spend your money? Well, I wouldn't tell anyone how they should bet, but what I can say is that if it was me, I'd take Savannah State.

I'm guessing there's no way FSU will want to completely push the SVSU kids into full blown depression. That 84-0 score had enough people talking and wringing their hands calling OSU a bunch of bullies, so I'd bet that the Seminoles will take it just a little bit easier on Savannah this week. The first team will play maybe the first half for FSU, then it's scrub city with a little talking to about running it up. If the lead is big enough in the first half, Florida State might not even attempt a pass in the second half. Then again, they might try to score 100. You just never know.
