Florida State is better at generating college football betting interest than generating wins.
Four weeks after the Seminoles opened the season with an overtime loss to Notre Dame, they’re still winless – 0-4 for the first time since 1974 – but do rank first nationally in one area: biggest one-game handle this season. The season opener against the Irish at Doak Campbell Stadium still ranks first in total tickets and handle at the BetMGM sportsbook.
It’s the only Florida State game that ranks in the top 25 most bet games this season. Their other three games are buried at 118th (vs. Louisville), 139th (at Wake Forest), and 203rd (vs. Jacksonville State). Notre Dame, meanwhile, is one of only two teams with two games in the top 10.
So maybe Notre Dame is good at generating betting interest for Florida State?
