Florida State became the 25th team in NCAA history to win 25 consecutive games, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 12 college football predictions, as it hits the road after picking up a 34-20 victory over the Virginia Cavaliers as 21-point home favorites last Saturday. The Seminoles have also managed to come out ahead in their last 21 games versus Atlantic Coast Conference opponents—the longest such streak by the program since capturing 24 straight from 1998-2001. Florida State is 2-7 ATS through nine games this year.
The Seminoles are led offensively by quarterback Jameis Winston, which is important to consider when looking over the college football betting odds, as he’s registered nine consecutive games with 20-plus completions. Last year’s Heisman Trophy winner has been responsible for multiple touchdowns in 21 of his 22 career starts since arriving in Tallahassee, while his 57 career scoring throws are now tied for 15th in ACC history. On the defensive side of the ball, junior end Mario Edwards Jr. is the main player to watch, as he finished with a career-best nine tackles last time out.
Miami has won and covered the number in its last three games, which includes a 47-20 victory over the North Carolina Tar Heels as 16.5-point home favorites Nov. 1, while out-gaining each opponent by a triple-digit margin over that span. The Hurricanes have been getting tremendous production out of running back Duke Johnson, who has recorded 100 or more rushing yards in five consecutive games, as he enters this high-profile affair second on the school’s all-time rushing list. Miami is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS at Sun Life Stadium during the 2014 campaign.
The Hurricanes have won 13 of their last 14 home games—outscoring opponents by a 546-260 margin in that situation. Miami has been balanced offensively for most of the year, as quarterback Brad Kaaya has completed 61.8 percent of his passes for 2,087 yards and 20 touchdowns with nine interceptions. He hasn’t focused in on one single target in the passing game, with six different players having 18 or more receptions.
Sports bettors will likely back the Hurricanes due to the underdog being 11-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings in this in-state rivalry.
