Miami is one of eight unbeaten teams left in major college football, as it comes off a 24-21 victory over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons as 26-point home favorites last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for a second consecutive contest. The Hurricanes nine-game winning streak is the program’s longest since a 10-game streak from 2003-04, which is important to consider when making your college football betting picks in Week 10. Miami is 5-8 SU and 10-3 ATS as an underdog the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 7-6 in that situation.
The Hurricanes are averaging 39.6 points per game and giving up 17.7, while they enter this in-state rivalry with a plus-five turnover margin. Miami has compiled a 12-5 record when making an appearance on ESPN’s College GameDay, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines. Offensively, running back Duke Johnson is the player to watch, as his 3,340 career all-purpose yards ranks eighth all-time in school history.
Florida State has won 11 consecutive games against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents, as it comes off a 49-17 blowout win over the NC State Wolfpack, but it dropped to No. 3 in the second week of the BCS standings. The Seminoles are scoring touchdowns on 54.2 percent of their drives, which trails only the Baylor Bears (57%) in that particular category. During its current win streak versus conference foes, the team is averaging 496.3 yards of total offense. Florida State is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS as favorites of 21.5 to 31 points the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 4-1 in that situation.
The Seminoles have won 10 of 11 games against Top 10 teams in ACC play, which is a spectacular record given the situation. Florida State is led by redshirt freshman Jameis Winston, who threw for 444 yards versus the Wolfpack last week. The team has been magnificent in the middle quarters this season, outscoring opponents by a 217-42 margin over that period of time.
Sports bettors will likely back the Hurricanes due to the underdog being 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings.
