The Hurricanes are looking to establish the former dominance of “The U”, starting the season off with a 52-7 win over FBS Charleston Southern last Thursday night. Heisman Trophy winner Tebow and the Gators are looking to replicate the 2006 season where they won only their second national championship in school history.
They got off to a great start last week by soundly trouncing Hawaii 56-10; handily covering the NCAA football line. Randy Shannon begins his second year of turning around the once dominant Hurricanes after a disappointing 5-7 campaign last season.
His team got off to a quick start in Week 1 by easily dispatching of Charleston Southern holding them to a paltry 126 total yards of offense. This week the task’s a lot bigger in having to play the #5 Gators, as the college football betting line does attest, and NCAA football betting fans who favor the Hurricanes will get the benefit of a lot of points to help them cover the spread.
The Gators looked very sharp in their home opener against Hawaii, leading 56-0 after three quarters before shutting it down. The ground game was the star of the show for Urban Meyer’s team as they rushed for 255 yards and four touchdowns on just 38 carries.
The defense and special teams were also sharp combining for three touchdowns and doubling Hawaii’s offensive production themselves. The Gators have now covered 11 of their last 15 games for college football gamblers off of the closing NCAA odds; with the majority of those pointspread winners coming as favorites.
NCAA odds show UF as a 21.5-point favorite over Miami with a ‘total’ of 51 points (which has significantly dropped from the 58 points it opened at).
