Randy’s Free Pick
The Pittsburgh Panthers are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they’re at home, but all Miami has done this season is win and cover numbers. Miami has proven itself many times on the road and has been the better team this season overall. I don’t care about where the game is. Give me the Canes.
