In the great NCAA football betting tradition the University of Miami Hurricanes will take on the horrendously outmatched Florida A&M Rattlers in one of the biggest mismatches of the week. But don’t feel bad for the Rattlers; even if they suffer a humiliating loss on the field they will receive a huge check as compensation for agreeing to get beat down in spectacular fashion. Such is life in college football betting.
The Canes enter this season with huge expectations. The team starts out the year ranked #13 in the AP Poll, the highest this traditional college football betting powerhouse has been ranked to open a season in years.
The team is loaded with veteran talent and expected by many to win the ACC and play in a BSC Bowl game at year end. Some sports betting sites even list this team a contender to play for the national title.
But first it has to get past tiny Florida A&M in warm up game the Canes before they head to Columbus Ohio to take on the Buckeyes in what will be the team’s toughest test of the year. A&M is Division I-AA School of little distinction and barely even shows up on college football betting map. And its defense will be sorely tested against the Canes high octane offense.
The Rattlers prefer to play a zone defense and this will likely give The U’s talented group of WRs plenty of room to operate and plenty of chances to make huge plays.
Kickoff for this Thursday matchup is set for 7:35 Eastern Time and sbg global sportsbook opened with the Canes as a ???-point favorite with an over/under total at ???.
This should be a very high scoring performance for Miami and if all goes according to plan Heisman Trophy candidate, Junior QB Jacory Harris, shouldn’t see much more than 2-3 quarters of action as the subs should get a chance to play clean up duty towards the end of the game after the starters have built up a solid lead. Last year the Canes won this matchup by 32 points and it should be much improved team this year.
Expect a very lopsided Canes win.
