    Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston has thrown for 28 touchdowns and seven interceptions during the 2013 season, which is important to consider when making your college football picks Saturday, as he prepares to take on the Idaho Vandals at Doak Campbell Stadium.

    Sports bettors will find that the Seminoles are 57-point home favorites in the NCAA betting odds, with the betting total sitting at 69 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this non-conference matchup from a betting perspective while offering up a prediction along the way.

    The Idaho Vandals have lost five games in a row, including a 59-38 setback to Old Dominion as 14-point home underdogs on Nov. 9.

    College football handicappers will find that the Vandals are 3-3 against the spread as underdogs of 31 or more points since 2011.

    The Florida State Seminoles are sitting in the No. 2 spot in the BCS standings due to their 10-0 straight-up and 8-2 against-the-spread record through 10 games of the 2013 campaign.

    It's important to point out that the program is the only one in the country to rank in the top five in both scoring offense and scoring defense.

Prediction

4 of 4

    I'm going to recommend that readers play the total, as the UNDER is 12-4 in the Florida State Seminoles' last 16 non-conference games.
