Miami snapped a three-game losing streak by picking up a 45-26 victory over the Virginia Cavaliers as 20.5-point home favorites last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total for a third consecutive contest. The Hurricanes have won 15 of their last 16 games against the Panthers, which is important to consider when making your college football picks in Week 14. Offensively, the team is led by quarterback Stephen Morris, who is one of four 7,000-yard passers in program history. Miami is 8-2 SU and 9-1 ATS when the line is +3 to -3 the last two-plus seasons, with no clear edge in terms of the betting total (5-5 Over/Under).
The Hurricanes are plus-four in turnover margin during the 2013 campaign, which is three better than the Panthers in that all-important category. Miami has scored 30 or more points in 18 of its first 35 games of the Al Golden era, which has resulted in a 15-3 record in those contests. On the defensive end, the unit has 27 sacks by 16 different players, which is 14 more than all of last year.
Pittsburgh has alternated wins and losses over its last four games, as it comes off a 17-16 victory over the Syracuse Orange as one-point road underdogs last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for the seventh time in eight affairs. The Panthers are bowl eligible, but are focused on trying to pick up their first in over the Hurricanes in eight tries, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines. Pittsburgh is 4-6 SU and 7-3 ATS in November since 2011, with the UNDER going 8-2 in that situation.
The Panthers have one of the best defensive tackles in the country, with senior Aaron Donald leading the nation in averaging 2.4 tackles for loss per game. He is a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award. Pittsburgh also boasts one of the ACC’s most productive receiving tandems, with senior Devin Street and freshman Tyler Boyd averaging 85.4 and 82.1 receiving yards respectively.
Sports bettors will likely play the total, as the UNDER is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in this series.
