College football odds continue to prove to be overvalued for the Miami Hurricanes as they continue to be an over-hyped team with the college football lines.
The Miami Hurricanes will host the North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday with a telecast on ESPN2. Kickoff is set for 7:30 PM Eastern and Sports-Gambling opened with Miami as a 6.5 point home favorite.
The North Carolina Tar Heels have a college football betting record of 4-2 straight up and 5-1 against the spread. UNC is coming off a 44-10 blowout win and payoff at Virginia for their 4th consecutive win as they are in the thick of the Coastal Division race in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Coach Butch Davis has had his lineup decimated with eligibility issues and had to fire his assistant head coach due to scandals with agents and payoffs that may eventually destroy the program and cost Davis his job.
Carolina ranks 33rd in the country for total defense, which has always been their strength while ranking 56th for scoring offense. Quarterback TJ Yates has been effective with 1495 yards passing.
The Miami Hurricanes are coming off a sluggish 28-13 win at Duke as 16 point road favorites to fall to an overall college football gambling record of 4-2 straight up and 3-3 against the spread. Miami was still feeling the effects of their 45-17 home blowout loss to Florida State on October 9 which exposed them as a national pretender.
Miami is a solid defensive team that ranks 21st in the country for yards allowed but the offense ranks just 56th with turnover prone quarterback Jacory Harris. Despite their problems “The U” is still very much in the ACC Coastal Division race and still has games against division leaders Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech.
Miami has paid out in just 10 of their last 32 home games while the Tar Heels have gotten the cash in 6 of their last 8 ACC games. Miami has failed to beat the college football odds in their last 6 games against North Carolina with 5 out of the last 6 games in this series going over the total.
