Florida State got a victory last week and there is nothing wrong with winning on the road but the Seminoles are still not clicking on anything close to all cylinders. This is the biggest spread in favour of Miami in years.
The sky might not be falling on the Hurricanes but they have not been great either this season.
Still their only loss is to a ranked LSU team on a neutral field so they have a chance to do something special if they win the games they are supposed to and get a little lucky.
Florida State Seminoles
Any thoughts of FSU being a playoff contender are long gone but there are still a number of quality opponents left on the schedule including old rival Miami. Win this one and suddenly this season could easily be considered a successful start to the Willie Taggart era.
The most notable struggles for the Seminoles have been along the offensive line. The videos of failing pass protection have been brutal but they have struggled to run the ball too. Cam Akers is a talented future pro but he has yet to crack even 90 yards on the season.
The defense has not ben as exposed as the offense but ranking 74th in yards allowed looks like a type next to the Florida State name. They are going to need a strong defensive effort against Miami to take pressure off that offense.
The Hurricanes won easily last week against North Carolina but it wasn’t because freshman quarterback N’Kosi Perry played well. The Tar Heels basically gave the game to Miami with five turnovers. Sure the defense is sharp but that makes it a lot easier.
This Hurricane defense is putting up numbers like we are used to seeing at the “U”. They might have the best set of linebackers anywhere in the country and are second in the nation in yards allowed per game. There are some injuries though that could hinder them.
Perry does not look equipped to win a game on his own just yet. Thankfully they are not asking him to. Miami has one of the most balanced offense in the game – 213ypg rushing and 216ypg passing.
That balance with strong defense should net them back to back wins against the Noles for the first time in a long time.

This is a pretty big spread on the home team, especially when you consider the series history and Perry is making just his second start.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Miami -12.5
I am not making this pick with much confidence but I think Miami has the better team and unless Florida State plays its best game of the year this one should be fairly one-sided.
Florida State is bound to have a performance that forces the markets to take notice at some point but until I see if they are a fade all the way.
