The Miami football team is an early 4.5-point underdog by Fan Duel when they host Texas A&M on September 9. FanDuel has odds out for several September games. The game versus Texas A&M is the only one for Miami on the early board by FanDuel. Miami lost 17-9 at Texas A&M in September last season.

Texas A&M covered against the Miami football team as a 6.5-point favorite in College Station in 2022. The two anemic offenses combined to be significantly lower than the 45.5-point total when they played in 2022. FanDuel has not set a total for Texas A&M at Miami in 2023. Miami opens the season on September 2 versus Miami (Ohio).

The Hurricanes play Bethune-Cookman on September 14 for a short turnaround after hosting Texas A&M. Miami is home for the first three weeks of the 2023 season before playing at Temple on September 23. Texas A&M begins its 2023 season versus New Mexico in College Station.

The Aggies play Louisiana-Monroe the week after traveling to Miami. Texas A&M begins its ACC schedule on September 23 versus Auburn. The game at Miami is the only road contest for the Aggies in the first six weeks of the season. Coaches for both programs should have the attention of the players for a big non-conference game.
