College Football: Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 3:30 pm (Doak Campbell Stadium)
The Line: Florida State Seminoles -5.5 -- Over/Under: 49.5
The Miami Hurricanes and the Florida State Seminoles will match up on the college football circuit Saturday.
The Hurricanes are 4-4 so far this year. Miami has fallen to Florida, UNC, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech but taken victories over B-CU, Central Michigan, Virginia and Pittsburgh.
In the win over Pitt, Miami QB N’Kosi Perry posted 104 yards and an INT, and Cam’Ron Harris rushed for 60 yards and a TD. KJ Osborn was the top receiver there with 94 yards and a score on six catches.
Over on the Florida State side, they’re 4-4 as well. The Seminoles have lost to Boise State, Virginia, Clemson and Wake Forest but beaten LA-Monroe, Louisville, NC State and Syracuse.
In the win over the Orange, Florida State QB Alex Hornibrook put up 196 yards and Tamorrion Terry had 84 yards on two grabs. Cam Akers was the star of the show however, with 144 rush yards and four touchdowns.
The Hurricanes are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 in November and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games. Miami is 6-14 ATS in their last 20 conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last four after an ATS win.
Meanwhile, the Seminoles are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five on grass and 6-13-3 ATS in their last 22 conference games. Florida State is 1-3-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win and the under is 4-0 in their last four on grass.
Miami seems to play better in lower-scoring games. Outside of their blowout over Bethune-Cookman, the Hurricanes’ wins have come in defense-heavy affairs and they’ve scored no more than 17 points in any of those three.
That’s not great news against a potentially effective offense like Florida State has. the Seminoles are just 1-2 over their last three games but those losses have come against ranked teams. I like Florida State to manage a cover here fairly easily.
