Losing Daniel Jones (2,674) passing yards will no doubt hurt an offense that put up (405.7) total yards per contest which ranked 66th in the BCS. The Blue Devils won just three Atlantic Coast Conference games in 2018 which concluded with an impressive 56-27 Independence Bowl victory over Temple. Quentin Harris is set to replace Jones under center and although he hasn’t developed as a passer, his ability to create with his legs is a weapon. However, head coach David Cutcliffe is an expert at developing quarterbacks. Harris reminds Cutcliffe of former Duke signal caller Thaddeus Lewis who was an NFL journeyman. Wide receiver Jake Bobo is the only experienced pass catcher but rushing attack returns leading rusher Deon Jackson (847.0) yards on the ground. Six returning offensive linemen with sixty-games of experience are back in the mix which should make Harris a bit more comfortable in the pocket.

On the other side of the football, eight starters return to a unit that allowed opponents (209.3) yards per game on the ground which was 107th in College Football. They let the opposition score (27.4) ppg which was a telling statistic; when the Blue Devils defense gave up 27 or fewer points, they went undefeated but 1-5 when allowing more than twenty-seven. Another asset for the Duke defense is the addition of cornerback Mark Gilbert who missed last season with an injury and looked good in spring practice. The defensive line returns all four starters from a year ago and has the best of both worlds with run stopper Derrick Tangelo along with pass rush specialist Victor Dimukeje. However, they have issues at linebacker with the loss of two tremendous tacklers who were smart and made plays from sideline to sideline. As the Duke football program is evolving, so is the schedule, and they’ll get tested right of the back on August 31st in Atlanta vs. Alabama. Three of their first four games are on the road which will be interesting for a first-year starting quarterback.

Native son brings the hope of BCS title to Florida State in 2018-19.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. NCAA Football ATS Betting Predictions are the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS-title game in January of 2019. Although there’s a coaching change the expectations are still at a premium at Florida State, Jimbo Fisher delivered at National Championship but other than dominance over their downtrodden in-state rivals the University of Florida, and Miami that’s about all Fisher did in his tenure. Fisher is now at Texas A&M while forty-one-year-old Bradenton, Florida product Willie Taggart takes over the reigns at Florida State. The first order of business for Taggart is to restore an offense that has not been the same since former Heisman trophy winner, and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston left the program. Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers are the new kings of the Atlantic Coast, and Florida State gets them at Doak Campbell Stadium this season as well as Virginia Tech and the Florida Gators coming to Tallahassee. Road trips to Miami, Louisville, and Notre Dame could provide a measuring stick to see where they are, Taggart understands he’ll be judge how many wins he can post.

Thirty-four-year-old Walt Bell will do everything in his power to improve a one hundredth ranked offense (351.9) total yards per game in College football from a year ago, with the help of Taggart who did wonder at Oregon in 2017, the University of South Florida, and Western Kentucky before his one season west. As usual Florida State has talent at every skilled position, but quarterback is another story with Deondre Francois who missed all but one game last season plus must restore his image in the locker room and James Blackman (2,230) passing yards as a true freshman in 2017. Wideout Nyqwan Murray missed spring drills with a knee injury but should be ready for the 2018 opener. Sixty-Eight sacks were given up by the Florida State offensive line the past two seasons that’s terrible but Taggart and the staff a slew of players with experience returning. Sophomore Cam Akers (1,025) rushing yards is slowly erasing the memories of Dalvin Cook and should be an All-Conference selection in 2018. Taggart has his dream job and should have the Florida State offense hitting on all cylinder right out the gate.

Florida State’s eighteenth ranked defense is under the tool edge of Cincinnati, Ohio native Harlan Barnett who spent many years at his alma mater Michigan State perfecting his craft learning from genius Mark Dantonio who branched out from the Nick Saban coaching tree. Demarcus Christmas leads a group of defensive linemen who are not quite as good as Clemson, but they can do just about everything. Brian Burns is a unique talent rushing the passer, and along with Joshua Kaindoh, they could wreak havoc in the ACC. However, it’s the back seven which lost all three starting linebackers, safety first-round NFL draft pick Derwin James, and cornerback Tarvarus McFadden that concerns the coaching staff. James is a once in a decade talent, but Florida State has the creme of the crop in a talent-rich area that produces defensive backs like no other region at the prep level. Bovada.Lv, list the Florida State Seminoles at 9/1 to win the 2018-19 Atlantic Coast Conference Title.
