Down at Hark Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on Saturday, November 26, the Duke Blue Devils will be visiting the Miami Hurricanes in college football action. 

Duke comes into play here with a 4-7 record on the season. The Blue Devils have lost four of their last five games, including a 56-14 loss to Pittsburgh this past Saturday. In that game, the Blue Devils rushed for just 25 yards overall, while giving up 224 yards on the ground to Pittsburgh. 

So far this year, Duke QB Daniel Jones has 2520 yards with 13 TDs and nine picks, while Shaun Wilson leads the ground game on 143 carries for 567 yards and four touchdowns. TJ Rahming is the Blue Devils’ top receiver on 60 catches for 625 yards and one TD. 

Over on the Miami side, they’re entering play here with a 7-4 mark on the season. The Hurricanes have won three straight after losing four in a row, including a 27-13 win over North Carolina State on Saturday. In that game, Miami RB Mark Walton controlled things with 120 yards and three scores on 19 carries. 

On the year thus far for Miami, QB Brad Kaaya has 2854 yards with 19 touchdowns and seven picks, while Walton has 179 carries for 1005 yards and 14 touchdowns. Ahmmon Richards leads the Hurricanes receivers on 43 catches for 849 yards and two scores. 

Duke is 5-0 ATS in their last five games following a straight-up loss, and 5-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Duke is also 4-1 ATS in their last five conference games, and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games. 

As for Miami, they’re 5-0 ATS in their last five games in November, and 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a straight-up win. Miami is also 5-1 ATS in their last six games after an ATS win, and 5-1 ATS in their last six home games versus a team with a losing road record. 

Only one team is coming into this matchup with any momentum at all, and that’s Miami. The Hurricanes looked sharp against NC State, and conversely Duke showed no life at all in an admittedly tough Pittsburgh game. I like Miami to keep rolling here and cover as the Blue Devils just wait out the clock to end the season.

Pick:
Miami-FL Hurricanes -14
