Miami Hurricanes 2015 NCAA Football Gambling Odds & Predictions

2015 Football Previews – (ACC) – Miami

After another disappointing season for the Miami Hurricanes, the hot seat under Al Golden is getting even hotter. Fans of the program are losing their patience as the team continues to be mired in mediocrity. And the issue certainly has been the talent, as evidenced by the litany of representation in February’s NFL Combine.

Both big name programs struggled and labored through the 2014 regular season and barely became bowl eligible.


After winning three straight to become bowl eligible, Miami had the biggest letdown of the season when they blew a late lead against the undefeated Florida State Seminoles. That loss sent the Hurricanes into a downward spiral and they lost their final two games against Virginia and Pittsburgh. The Hurricanes will look to win a bowl game for the first time since 2006.

[dfads params=’groups=63738&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

The Hurricane offense seems to roll when Junior RB Duke Johnson is at his best. Johnson rushed for 6 consecutive 100 yard games, but struggled in the Hurricane’s final two contests. On the season Johnson has rushed for 1520 yards to go along with 10 touchdowns. He gave Miami the 51st best rushing attack in the nation with 179.9 yards a game.

Also struggling down the stretch of the season was QB Brad Kaaya. The young Freshman struggled to get Miami into the end zone in the later part of the season. With these types of growing pains expected, Kaaya still managed to lead the Hurricanes to the 46th best passing attack with 251.1 pass yards a game.

Miami’s Bowl game struggles have seen them score just 13.5 points a game over their past 6 post season contests.

South Carolina

Ranking number 9 in week 1 of the NCAA football season, the Gamecocks stumbled right out of the gates against Texas A&M. Throughout the 2014 season, South Carolina struggled to win close games. Losing by just 1 point to Missouri, 7 points to Kentucky, 7 points to Auburn, and 3 points to Tennessee, the Gamecocks could have saw their season have a much different ending had they won a couple of those games. That being said, getting a chance to play a big name program like Miami will highlight the Saturday Bowl slate.

The struggles for South Carolina stemmed from the lack of defensive stops and allowing late touchdowns to the opposition. The Gamecocks allowed 31.2 points against (93rd) and 433.6 yards. 5 of their 6 losses saw them allow 35 points or more.

While the defense had it’s share of problems, the offense led by QB Dylan Thompson and RB Mike Davis continued to keep the Gamecocks in games and get them to a post season bowl game. South Carolina averaged 281.4 pass yards a game (21st) and scored 33.3 points (37th). Thompson threw for 24 touchdowns, while Davis rushed for 9 himself.

[dfads params=’groups=63739&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

Coming into the Duck Commander Independence Bowl, the Gamecocks have won 3 straight bowl appearances.

NCAA Football Handicapping Trends:

  • Hurricanes are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games overall.

Miami simply struggles when it comes to bowl season. Scoring has always been an issue for the Hurricanes and expect a no different outcome here.

South Carolina 20, Miami 17

The Gamecocks control the clock and use RB Mike Davis en route to a low scoring South Carolina victory.

The Hurricanes (4-3) moved to one game over .500 after beating Cincinnati 55-34 at home two weeks ago.
Now with a week’s rest they Canes’ return to conference play in dire need of a league win if they want to keep their bowl hopes alive.

[dfads params=’groups=63738&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

Miami last faced an ACC opponent , losing 28-17 at Georgia Tech on Oct. 4, but it will hope that it can continue its dominate ground the next time out, like the one that rolled up 335 yards versus the Bearcats.

However, the Hurricanes have not done well on the road this season, losing to Louisville, Nebraska and Georgia Tech, and will be challenged by the Hokies.

Offensively, Miami hasn’t had much trouble moving the ball, as demonstrated against Cincinnati, where the Hurricanes produced 621 total yards.

The team is led by quarterback Brad Kaaya who has thrown for 1,806 yards and 16 touchdowns this season.

[dfads params=’groups=66501&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

Defensively, it’s been a different story. The Canes’ allowed 422 total yards to the Bearcats and have been mediocre at best this season on the defensive side to the football, allowing about 25 PPG.


The Hokies (4-3) began their 2014 campaign with a perfect 2-0 record, but have slipped to just one game over .500 after losing at Pittsburgh 21-16 last weekend.

Quarterback Michael Brewer led the offense in that one, passing for just 265 yards and a single touchdown to wide receiver Cam Phillips.

It was not a good offensive outing, as the running game struggled mightly, managing to produce just 26 yards the
entire game.

[dfads params=’groups=63739&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

To make things worse, the Hokies converted only two of their 14 third down attempts.

On the defensive side of the football, it wasn’t much better, as VT gave up 210 rushing yards to the Panthers. That’s unusual for a unit that only allows an average of 20 points per game.

Week 9 NCAA Football Spread Prediction

The Hokies offense is struggling with only 28.4 points per game, and while Canes’ offense is lighting up the scoreboard, I think VT’s defense can hold them in check.

Virginia Tech is 2-2 at home this year and even though they have been inconsistent offensively, they should be able to put up enough points against a Miami defense that has given up a good amount of points this season.

Tech has won four of the last five meetings, so I’m going to take the home dog.
