The Miami Hurricanes and Florida State Seminoles face off on Saturday in an ACC showdown at Doak Campbell Stadium. This is a big-time rivalry and there could be some fireworks on the field.
The Miami Hurricanes come into this game with a 5-4 record and in the last game against Georgia Tech they won 33-30. Miami has dealt with a ton of injuries, but this is still a very talented team. Miami is averaging 32.9 points while their defense is giving up 30.4 points per game. Under center for Miami is Tyler Van Dyke and against Georgia Tech he had a big game throwing for 389 yards and three touchdowns. Running back Jaylen Knighton also had a big game rushing for 162 yards and a touchdown.
On the other side of this matchup is the Florida State Seminoles who sit with a 3-6 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against NC State, the offense could only manage 14 points. Florida State is averaging 28.1 points while their defense is giving up 27 points per game. Jordan Travis and McKenzie Milton have both played under the center this season, but it will be Milton getting the start in this game. Milton has thrown for 761 yards, three touchdowns, and five interceptions.
Miami is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games as a favorite. Florida State is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games overall. The underdog is 16-5 against the spread in the last 21 meetings. The road team is 6-1 against the spread in the last seven meetings. The under is 5-0 in the last five meetings in Florida State. The Hurricanes are 6-1 against the spread in the last seven meetings between the two teams.
This total is too high with the Florida State Seminoles offense. The Seminoles' offense didn’t look good in the last game, and Miami is going to lock down in this game with their defense. I expect Florida State to only score around 20 points and the under is going to cash.
