Why bet the Miami Hurricanes Odds at -3
The 11th-ranked Hurricanes smacked a very good Duke team around in its commanding 31-6 Week 5 win this past Saturday as quarterback Malik Rosier passed for 270 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while rushing for 45 yards and an additional score on 15 carries.
More importantly, Miami’s defense put the Blue Devils’ offense on lockdown by limiting Duke to a pair of first-half field goals to help them easily cover the college football betting line as 5.5-point road favorites.
Why Bet the Florida State Seminoles Odds at +3
The Seminoles got their first win of the season by beating Wake Forest 26-19, but it certainly wasn’t a cakewalk. Young signal-caller James Blackman passed for a modest 121 yards and one touchdown while running back Jacques Patrick rushed for 120 yards and another score in the win.
Miami Vs FSU Free Pick
Florida State may have won a dominating seven consecutive games against Miami in this ACC rivalry, but I’m thinking that now is the perfect time for Miami to snap their losing streak against a Seminoles team that clearly isn’t as good as they should be thanks to the loss of starting quarterback Deondre Francois.
Florida State is averaging an uninspiring 18.0 points per game while Miami has been playing excellent football on both sides of the ball by averaging a stellar 41.3 points per game while simultaneously limiting their opponents to just 16.3 points per game.
Florida State quarterback James Blackman has been mediocre at best in throwing the ball and that has made the Seminoles a one-dimensional team.
The Hurricanes are a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last five conference games, a near-perfect 7-1 ATS in their last eight games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five road dates against Florida State. Keep it simple. Right now, Miami is clearly the better team in all three phases.
Pick: Miami -3
