Prediction

La Salle will be one of the better teams Miami has played this season. Outside of the five games verusus Power Conference teams, La Salle is the first true midmajor Miami will play this season. After the decisive loss to Colorado, Miami has to prove it can cover the spread. The 16.5 points are a lot to lay. Take La Sale and the points.

Miami should win the game, but not cover. Both teams can score. When Miami is playing at its best the game is played at a high pace. La Salle and Miami are good teams offensively who should eclipse the 154.5 total. Expect Miami to get Wooga Poplar and Norchad Omier involved early. That should open outside shots for Pack.

Miami barely stays in ratings. Miami barely stayed in this week's top 25. dark. Next

Miami will be off until Thursday when they host Stonehiil. North Florida will play at Miami on December 29 in the Hurricanes' last non-conference game of the 2023-24 season. Miami needs to finish December strong. Thirteenth ranked Clemson plays at Miami on January 3 to resume ACC play.
