The Miami basketball team returns to non-conference play versus LIU after winning its ACC opener 62-39 over Notre Dame on Saturday. Sixteen-year NBA veteran Rod Strickland is the LIU head coach. LIU was 3-26 in the 2022-23 season in the inaugural year under Strickland.

Miami dropped seven spots in the Associated Press Top 25 and USA Today Coaches polls this season.

Miami is 63rd in the initial net ratings through games on Monday.

LIU is led by 6’2 guards Eric Acker and Tai Strickland. Acker is averaging 13.9 points per game, 3.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists. Strickland is averaging 13.9 PPG, 3.4 RPG and 2.6 APG.

LIU at Miami Fan Duel Odds:

Spread: Miami minus 27.5 Total 146.5 Moneyline: Miami minus 3s0,000 LIU plus 4,000 Total 154.5 Courtesy FanDuel

The point spread is huge. LIU and Miami are both 4-3 versus the point spread this season. Miami won the season-opening by 41 over NJIT and should be able to dominate LIU the same way. Jim Larranaga will probably try and get his reserves in. The lean here would be LIU and the under.

Next. Miami hoops plummets in Week 5 rankings. dark

Long Island is a game the Miami basketball team should win easily ahead of the key neutral court non-conference game on Sunday versus Colorado. The game versus Colorado will be the last chance for Miami to earn a resume-building win before resuming non-conference play on January 3 versus Clemson.
