Miami, Florida State Collide For A Renewal Of An Old Rivalry

Posted by Blake Frazier on 2/4/2014 5:51:42 AM

Miami (FL) (7) @ Florida State (2) – Saturday November 7, 2013

It has been a long, long time since the NCAA football betting world has been legitimately excited about a game between the Hurricanes and the Seminoles. It is usually Florida State that has been the ranked team with the Hurricanes struggling. But it was not that long ago that the state of Florida State boasted two strong college football teams and two legitimate national championship contenders. It looks like those days are back as both Miami and Florida State have teams that need to be watched and monitored as the college football season heads towards its halfway point.

The Miami Hurricanes have been out of the spotlight for a while, but definitely not forgotten. It took the Canes a couple of years to build up to this kind of a season, but now Miami is looking at a strong season from a team that is excellent on both sides of the football. Miami is 2-0 in the ACC and could really change the balance of power in its conference if it can win this game. The Seminoles are 4-0 in the ACC and could knock the Hurricanes down a few pegs and possibly knock Miami out of conference championship contention. There is a lot at stake with this game and both teams will be coming out firing on all cylinders.

Why Miami Will Win

The betting sites see a very balanced offensive attack from the Hurricanes that has helped the team to rise to the top of the ACC early in this season. Senior quarterback Stephen Morris is on pace to throw for 3,000 yards this season and sophomore running back Duke Johnson is the running threat that Miami has needed for years. The Hurricanes also rank 11th in the country in points allowed, which adds a legitimate defensive threat to their offensive attack. This is a solid all-around football team that will give the Seminoles all kinds of problems.

Why Florida State Will Win

If the online football betting world had to pick one area where the Seminoles are struggling, then it would be running the ball. But being ranked 27th in the country running the football is not exactly struggling. Florida State has always played solid defense, and that is the case in 2013. But it has been a while since the Seminoles have had an air attack that has put the opposition on its heels. This season, Florida State boasts the 10th best passing game in the country and that is going to be a huge factor in this game.

The Bottom Line

The Florida State Seminoles are at home and looking good for this game. The Miami Hurricanes are coming in a desperate team, but the Canes are not going to be able to hang with Florida State in the second half. This game will be close, but the Seminoles will pull away by the fourth quarter and never look back.

Pick: Florida State
