Prediction

The Miami basketball season has gone from being difficult to trust the Hurricanes to putting money on the other team. It's not there yet. Boston College and Miami each average over 75 points per game and allow about 72. Miami has been too inconsistent offensively to trust the over. Take the under with confidence.

The tough stretch for Miami will continue on Wednesday when the Hurricanes return home to host Duke. After Duke, Miami has games, versus Georgia Tech, at North Carolina, at Florida State and versus Boston College to finish the regular season. Miami realistically go 5-1 to have any chance at an NCAA Tournament bid.
