2010 Gator Bowl odds had West Virginia a -2 ½ favorite vs. Florida State at BetUS.com.  This line opened at -3 and hasn't moved much.  West Virginia was getting just shy of 70 percent of the betting action in this game.  Gambling911.com did not expect this to be a heavily wagered on College Bowl game when comparing to the Sugar Bowl and Rose Bowl affairs later in the day. 

West Virginia has posted solid numbers across the board this season, and save for an embarrassing 41-30 defeat against OC Gus Malzahn's offense at Auburn, the unit has only allowed more than 24 points in one game. The unit ranks 34th in the country, allowing just 330.0 yards per game, and could thrive against FSU if it can force Manuel to make careless mistakes with the football.

Very uncharacteristically, the Noles are allowing 444.3 yards per game this year, ranking just 110th amongst the 120 teams in the land. It's hard to see how WVU will rack up anything less than the 203.2 yards per game that the Seminoles are allowing on the ground in the Gator Bowl.

Some important 2010 Gator Bowl odds trends to consider before betting on this game include two heavily favoring Florida State:

West Virginia is 4-14 ATS in their last 18 games following a ATS win and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 vs. ACC.  There are few negative trends involving Florida State that really stand out.
