Miami is a huge, nearly 3 TD favorite on the road Saturday night. Well, on the ‘road’ is a technicality because this game is being held at Marlins Park,
The Hurricanes have become bowl eligible thanks to three straight wins. The last two have come in dominating fashion as well which would lead bettors to believe that the U can cover the -20 in this one.
Don’t sleep on the Golden Panthers in this one however. These two teams battled to a 17-31 final at Hard Rock Stadium in a game the home team Hurricanes were -26.5 favorites. FIU is also 5-1 at home on the year.
Miami has ripped off 3 wins in a row with a great chance for 5 straight to end the season and build momentum for next year. Of course that starts with a win over FIU on Saturday but then the ‘Canes must also get a W at Duke next week.
Besides momentum for next year, what has the Hurricanes motivated to continue their recent run is an outside chance at the Orange Bowl. If Clemson makes the FBS playoffs, their Orange Bowl spot would go to the next highest ACC team in the rankings which could be Miami if they win out.
Another big reason for motivation for UM in this one is the fact they are up against their old coach Butch Davis. The coach led Miami to a top 3 finish in the 2000 season. Davis left for the Browns in ’01 and Miami won the national championship the next year.
Besides off-the-field factors, there are plenty of reasons to like Miami in this spot even with the huge spread. The biggest being that the Hurricanes took care of Louisville 52-27 last week as just -6.5 favorites.
Miami also beat Florida State the week before 27-10 as +3 road underdogs.
FIU Golden Panthers
FIU has hit a little skid after a nice run of three straight wins to start October in which the Golden Panther scored 44,48, and 32 points.
Since then, Davis’ team has dropped 2 of 3 including a 17-50 loss to Middle Tennessee when FIU was a -1 road favorite. MT ran for 483 yards that game against Florida International’s #116 rush defense.
The Golden Panthers did keep things within 2 TDs in last year’s meeting though, mostly due to garbage time though after falling down 31-0 after three quarters. Three scores in the last 7 minutes of the 4th sealed the back door cover.

Free Week 13 NCAA Football Pick
Gotta like Miami in this one, trying to reach the Orange Bowl and up against a familiar foe but at a neutral site for a ‘road’ game.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Miami -20
Bettors will remember last year’s close game and will give FIU a lean. That game could have been 45-0 if Miami wouldn’t have let off the gas out of respect for their old coach. They won’t do that again.
