College football handicappers will find that the Wolf Pack are 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games as underdogs of 20 or more points.

The Florida State Seminoles picked up a 41-13 season-opening victory over the Pittsburgh Panthers as 11.5-point road favorites Sept. 2, with quarterback Jameis Winston throwing for 356 yards and four touchdowns.
Over the last two-plus seasons, the Seminoles are 4-0 straight up and 1-3 against the spread as favorites of 31 or more points.
I'm going to recommend that readers play the total, as the Florida State Seminoles have gone OVER the number in four of their last five games in September.
