The Miami Hurricanes and Florida State Seminoles face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the Donald L Tucker Center. It has been a bad season for Miami and Florida State is looking to bounce back here. Let’s take a look at who’s going to come out on top. 

What a Bad Season for Miami 

Miami faced off against Boston College in the last game and the offense was awful. Miami scored only 57 points and they ended up losing ten points. Matthew Cleveland had a strong game putting up 13 points and seven rebounds. Miami is averaging 76.1 points while their defense is giving up 73.1 points per game. The offense is ranked 109th while the defense is ranked 215th. Norchad Omier is averaging 17 points while shooting 56.3 percent from the field and 37.1 percent from behind the three point line. 

Florida State Looks to Bounce Back

Florida State in the last game faced against Pittsburgh, and they were defeated 88-73. At halftime they were down 42-31 and they couldn’t bounce back. Cameron Corhen had a strong game putting up 25 points, eight rebounds, and one assist. Florida State is averaging 76.3 points while their defense is giving up 75.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 100th in the league but the defense is going to need to be better here. Jamir Watkins had a strong game putting up 15.1 points while shooting 46.3 percent from the field. 

Miami vs Florida State Betting Prediction

Miami has been so inconsistent all season, and I really just don’t trust them here. Florida State is averaging 76.3 points and they are going to have no issue against Miami. Florida State’s defense is also going to be a little better here, and that is going to be the difference here as the Seminoles are going to ge the job done. Back Florida State to win this game and cover the spread.
