Prior to covering the 7.5 point spread against North Carolina in a 45-42 loss, the Miami football team had five straight games they did not cover against FBS teams dating to the end of the 2020 season.

Miami has righted their season with victories over number 18 North Carolina State two weeks ago and number 17 Pittsburgh last Saturday. The 4-4 Hurricanes host the 3-5 Yellow Jackets at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday. Georgia Tech is also 3-5 against the spread. Georgia Tech has won the last two games against Miami.

Miami versus Georgia Tech is summarized by 247 Sports.

"WILD CARD: GEORGIA TECH AT MIAMILatest Line: Miami by 10.5Why it’s upset-worthy: Late Kick w/Josh Pate perhaps summed up this game the best when he simply said he had a bad feeling about this game.Sure, Miami is playing better. The Hurricanes are five points away from stringing together five straight wins, and while the margins weren’t great, losses to Alabama and Michigan State and a close win against Appalachian State don’t look as disastrous in the light of day now—even the Mountaineers are 6-2.But Georgia Tech is capable on a given Saturday; the Yellow Jackets blasted the North Carolina team that was responsible for one of Miami’s recent losses and, like Miami, had a close loss to Virginia. Rival Florida State is coming up, and this just seems like the kind of game that could see Miami lose the turnover battle.That could be enough to keep things close, and during a week without many great Wild Card picks, that’s enough to list it here."

Miami needs to continue the development and progress they have had in the wins against NC State and Pittsburgh. The Miami offense has been one of the best in the country in the last two weeks. Miami has made enough big plays defensively, particularly at the end of games needed to win versus the Wolfpack and Panthers.
