As expected, the majority of the odds favor Florida State. Oddsmakers make apparent that a Seminole blowout is much more likely than one by the Tigers, as evidenced by the 9:2 payout odds for a 13-18 point FSU victory and the 7:1 payout odds for a 19-24 point FSU victory. These are comparitively much lower than those offered for Auburn — a Tiger win by 13-18 points is listed at 18:1, and by 19-24 points, at 33:1.

Just to show how specific these numbers are, let's take a look at all the factors that went into just, say, Auburn's rushing totals. If the Tigers are to pull the upset, they will need huge games from Heisman finalist Tre Mason and quarterback Nick Marshall. Some facts to consider when it comes to the odds on those two players:

  • Mason's over/under for rushing yards on Monday is 109.5, but he has not rushed for anything below that number since October 26th against Florida Atlantic, a game in which he did not play the second half.
  • In Mason's last five games, he has rushed for an average of 173.6 yards.
  • Arkansas, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and Missouri — Mason's last five opponents — have an average rank of 56th nationally in rushing defense. Florida State is 13th.
  • For what it's worth, the best of those five teams — Alabama — was ninth in the country against the run, and Mason ran for 164 yards on 29 carries in that one.

Also, Marshall has completed more than 12 passes only three times this season, and only once in his last eight games. A bet on the over here would be a bet made thinking that Auburn will throw to keep pace with Winston and company.
