Florida State opened as an 18-point favorite against Georgia Tech in Week 9, according to the initial betting line set by CircaSports.

The total has been set at 50.5 points. Here’s the full slate of opening lines for Week 9:

Florida State is coming into this matchup off of a bye week. Before that, the Noles lost three straight games to ranked opponents in Wake Forest, NC State and Clemson.

However, Florida State is still clearly respected in Las Vegas. The Noles are building toward their first eight-win season since 2016.

FSU hasn’t reached a bowl game since 2019, but beating Georgia Tech would put Mike Norvell’s squad within one win of bowl eligibility.

The Yellow Jackets have played well since firing Geoff Collins earlier this season. They beat Pittsburgh and Duke in back-to-back weeks and nearly defeated UVA in Week 8. Quarterback Jeff Sims was forced to leave that game early due to injury. Sims’ status will be worth tracking throughout the week.

Kickoff is at 12:00 p.m. ET next weekend.
