Florida State at Miami football Week 10 prediction
The Miami football team has not been blown out by Florida State since a 41-14 loss in 2013. The Hurricanes seemed to get its defense right on Saturday versus Virginia. Miami should at least keep the game closer than the 7.5-point spread. The 52.5-point total seems too high. It’s best to take Miami and the under.
Miami is 0-7 against the spread this season versus FBS opponents. The Hurricanes are far overdue. In a rivalry game, at home, at night, Miami should be inspired. The Miami defense should keep the game close and the crowd should be ready under the lights at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday night.
