Before making a choice between Florida State and LSU, check out college football predictions from the SportsLine projection model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past six years, its proprietary computer model has generated a staggering profit of nearly $3,600 for $100 players on its top-rated college football rosters at the spread. It’s going into Week 1 of the 2022 college football season with a 45-32 run on all of the top-rated college football spreads and rosters dating back to 2021. Anyone who’s followed it has seen huge returns.
The model knows that expectations are high for the Tigers, who want to fight their way to an eventual fourth national championship. The Arizona state transfer Jayden Daniels is expected to take over the quarterback. Last season with ASU, Daniels appeared in 13 games for the Sun Devils, including a 20-13 loss to Wisconsin in the Las Vegas Bowl. Daniels finished the season by completing 197 of 301 passes (65.4 percent) for 2,380 yards and 10 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. In his three-year career with the state of Arizona, he completed 451 of 723 passes (62.4 percent) for 6,024 yards and 32 touchdowns with 13 interceptions.
The model also knows that the Seminoles seem to have a solid hasty attack. In the opener, running backs Treshaun Ward (127), Trey Benson (105) and Lawrence Toafili (101) all broke the 100-yard rushing mark. It was the first time in Florida history that three players ran 100 or more yards in the same game. FSU finished with a total of 406 yards, including 232 passes. It was the Seminoles’ first 400-200 game since 1995, when they reached that goal against Wake Forest.
Now it has its sights set on Florida State vs. LSU. We can tell you that the model leans over the total, and it also says: one side of the spread hits in more than 60% of the simulations! You ABSOLUTELY have to see it before you lock college football picks.
