Miami at Duke Prediction Week 13

Miami has covered in five of their 11 games this season. Five of the Miami games have gone over this season, five under and the game Miami defeated Georgia Tech 33-30 in a game that was set at 63 points. Duke has covered the spread four times this season and the over had been reached six times in Blue Devils games.

The Miami offense has played extremely well since the second half against North Carolina last month. Miami quarterback Tyler Van Dyke has thrown for over 300 yards and three touchdowns in the last five games. Van Dyke and the Hurricanes offense should continue to thrive against a porous Duke defense on Saturday.

Miami should win the game easily. Expect the Hurricanes to cover the 21.5 point spread. The Miami defense has been inconsistent this season. Miami is ninth in the ACC in scoring defense. Duke should be able to put some points on the board for both teams to exceed the over/under at 63.

Miami easily covered the 14.5 point-spread in Durham last season. With the Hurricanes getting the shutout in 2020, the teams did not reach the over/under of 62. The 2020 Miami defense is better than it is this season. Van Dyke and Miami should roll. In the last regular-season game, Miami should be focused and earn the win.
