Two bitter in-state and ACC rivals take center stage on Saturday afternoon when the Florida State Seminoles (3-1, 1-1 ATS) head south to take on the Miami Hurricanes (2-2, 2-1 ATS). Kickoff from Miami is set for 3:30 ET. Last year in Tallahassee, Miami came back from down five points with under two minutes remaining to shock the Noles by a 37-29 final count.
FSU put together a solid effort in all phases of its game against Colorado last Saturday in Jacksonville. RB Antone Smith ran for 154 yards and a career-high three touchdowns against the Buffs, while the defense forced two turnovers and LB Dakota Watson blocked a punt for a safety.
It all added up to a 39-21 victory for the Seminoles, who had no problem covering the 6.5-point spread on the college football betting line for their football betting fans. With just inside 10:00 to go, the Canes held a 10-point lead against North Carolina and looked all set to cover the NCAAF line of 7.5.
The Heels stormed back with back-to-back touchdowns though, and stole a 28-24 victory in South Florida, handing a difficult defeat to NCAA football betting followers backing the Hurricanes.
Miami’s defense was stout, limiting the Tarheels to just 35 yards on 33 carries, but the secondary let them down with several long completions against backup QB Cam Sexton down the stretch. QB Robert Marve was so-so, completing 18-of-27 passes for 135 yards with three touchdowns to go along with a pair of interceptions.
