Quarterback

Deondre Francois, Florida State ($8,700) at Syracuse

Florida State has looked shaky at best to start the Willie Taggart era, and you could easily point to that Week 1 box score against Virginia Tech, yell "THREE INTERCEPTIONS NO TOUCHDOWNS" at me and go on with your day. You could also note that Florida State almost lost at home to Samford. No argument from me, those are facts. But Francois' performance itself hasn't been the issue. The issue has been the offensive line, so if Syracuse had an above-average defensive front, I'd be nervous. Well, Syracuse has played two weak opponents and still ranks 70th in tackles for loss and 80th in sacks. Francois will have time to operate, which makes him dangerous and his talented receiving corps should be able to separate from Syracuse's shaky secondary. There's also the fact that this game has the highest implied total (68.0) on the slate, so this is a matchup to invest in.
