Pittsburgh at Miami football Week 13 predictions
The expectation has to be with their season on the line the Miami football team will perform at a higher level offensively. Pittsburgh has improved throughout the season and is playing at its highest level entering the regular season finale. The Panthers can improve its bowl standing in the ACC with a win over Miami.
Miami has been difficult to trust betting on this season. After covering the point spread in a 70-13 win over Bethune-Cookman in the season opener, the Hurricanes did not cover until the win over Georgia Tech two weeks ago. The win over the Yellow Jackets is the only time Miami has covered versus an FBS opponent this season.
Miami has not won an ACC Game at home this season and hasn’t emerged victorious at Hard Rock Stadium since its week two win over Southern Mississippi. With their season on the line, Miami should at least be competitive and is more likely than not to cover the point spread. The total is one of the lowest this season.
