Florida State is 5-2 in 2022 against the spread versus FBS opponents. The Seminoles have covered the spread in six of the last eight games against the Miami football team. The under has come in during nine of the last 11 Miami versus Florida State games and eight of the last 12 at Hard Rock Stadium.

Half of the 2022 Florida State games have gone under and half over. Only three of the eight 2022 Miami games have gone over. The total for Miami versus Florida State is 53.5 as set by Fan Duel. Florida State has been far more potent offensively than Miami in 2022. Florida State averages 32.1 points per game, Miami 27.4.

Florida State has scored at least 30 points this season against a Power Five opponent and topped 40 twice. Miami only scored 30 points twice this season against an FBS opponent and one was a loss to Middle Tennessee State. The Hurricanes are averaging 21.3 PPG versus FBS opponents and 17.6 versus Power Five teams.

Florida State and Miami are close in scoring defense. The Seminoles allow 21.9 PPG and Miami 22.5. Louisville, Wake Forest and Clemson all scored more than 30 points against Florida State. The Miami football team was scorched for 45 points by Middle Tennessee State and Duke. Both defenses need more consistency.

The money trending towards FSU likely relates to a few factors. Florida State has been far more impressive this season with all three of their losses against teams who were ranked when they defeated the Seminoles. There is uncertainty who Miami will start at quarterback. Tyler Van Dyke missed last week’s game with an injury.

The money could move towards Miami if Van Dyke is cleared to start. An announcement about Van Dyke is not expected to game day. Florida State and Miami will kick off at 7:30 PM ET. With the late kickoff, it’s best to not include the game in a parlay with the uncertainty surrounding Van Dyke.

The point spread seems high for many reasons, especially if Van Dyke plays on Saturday. It’s highly unlikely for Miami to go the entire season without covering the point spread. The Miami offense will be the key to how the game turns out. Miami has not been consistent offensively for an entire game in 2022.
