Malik Cunningham was great in the last game by air and ground as he led the team in rushing yards. The Seminoles struggled in their last game vs LSU winning the game by luck as the Tigers missed the tying field goal. The Cardinals are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 games vs Seminoles so go with the Cards to cover the spread at home.
