What there is to know
The Miami Hurricanes (FL) look to defend their home turf on Saturday against the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils at 12:30 p.m. ET. Both of these teams will be looking for a pick-me-up after sizable losses in their previous matches.
The points spread favored Miami (FL) last week, but not luck. They must be in pain after a deadly 38-17 loss to the Michigan State Spartans. It was a tight 10-7 game at the break, but unfortunately for the Hurricanes it certainly didn’t stay that way. QB D’Eriq King had a memorable game, but not the way you want to remember it: Despite a touchdown, he threw two interceptions and dropped the ball twice.
Meanwhile, Central Connecticut State took a serious blow against the Southeast Louisiana Lions last week, falling 56-10. Central Connecticut State was in a difficult position at halftime, already at 28-3.
This next game looks promising for Miami (FL), which is favored by 46 points. True fans might be the only ones betting on them, currently 0-2 ATS, to cover the spread.
The defeats brought the two teams back to an identical 1-2. Neither Miami (FL) (1-0 after the losses) nor the Blue Devils (also 1-0) have made a habit of putting their heads down after the losses this year, so another mistake will be unusual territory for the ‘one or the other team.
