  • Trent Forrest is finishing his college career off well preparing for the next level.

  • Seminoles are ranked and looking to move up in the poll rankings.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State Seminoles men’s basketball team looks to be serious contenders for the NCAA tournament. Head coach Leonard Hamilton has this team ready to have a good season with a few players coming back from last year’s team.

Taking on the North Florida Ospreys, The Noles are heavy favorites on the spread (-20.5) at online sportsbooks.

North Florida has gotten off to a hot start, being undefeated at home. The problem for head coach Matthew Driscoll and his crew though, is that they are playing away from home. With a record of 7-5 overall, the Ospreys are just 1-4 on the road.

Playing the Noles for the fifth time, the Ospreys are looking for their first victory against them. North Florida is bringing in a dangerous offense starting with Carter Hendricksen.

Leading the team with 17 points per game, Hendricksen is helping the Ospreys lead the nation with the most three-pointers made (149). This offense can catch fire and will need to pull off the upset. Power five programs have dominated the Ospreys, so bettors need to beware of this game.

The Seminoles are coming into the game off a big victory against ACC rival the Clemson Tigers. Already winning a few big games such as the then 21-ranked Tennessee Volunteers. The Seminoles are putting their resume together before the NCAA tournament comes around.

Even though facing an in-state team in the Ospreys, SportsBettingFlorida.com knows this is a game the Noles do not need to overlook. The Noles have never lost to the Ospreys as they go in this game planning to extend their winning streak.

Trent Forrest has been everything for the Noles this season so far. Florida State will also need help from swingman Devin Vassell who is averaging 12 points per game.
