The Miami Hurricanes are off to a 5-3 start as they try and follow up on the storybook season they had last year. Miami is replacing nearly their entire team from last year but even in their losses they have been competitive. Rion Brown leads the Canes averaging 12.4 points and 7.9 rebounds. Garrius Adams averages 11.8 points and 4.9 rebounds, Donnavan Kirk is averaging 10.2 points and 6.6 rebounds, and Davon Reed is averaging 9.4 points. Miami is averaging 65.8 points per game and they are shooting 41.5 percent while defensively they are allowing 63.3 points and their opponents are shooting 42.4 percent. Miami could be in for a tough season.
Nebraska is 7-1-1 against the spread in their last nine home games, 0-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 8-1-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t over the point spread. Miami is 2-6 against the spread against the Big Ten, 21-9-1 against the spread following a win, and 1-5 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
I had this one around three points which means I am taking the points but there isn’t a ton of value here.
