According to oddsmakers at, the over/under win total odds for the Hurricanes has been set at 7.5 this season. The over has odds of -160, while the under has a money line of +130.

Miami is coming off a 9-4 record in 2013, with a 5-3 mark in the ACC. The Hurricanes started 7-0 before dropping three straight and falling out of the title picture. Al Golden is now 22-15 in his time at Miami and looking to make a run at the Coastal Division this season.

The offense averaged 33.4 points and 425.8 yards per game last season, but are now without Stephen Morris at quarterback. The Hurricanes wanted to turn to Ryan Williams, but a knee injury in April is forcing Miami to use a freshman for the time being, likely Kevin Olsen. Olsen will have three starters back on the line and Duke Johnson back at running back, but Miami is without any returning starters at receiver. It could take some time for the Hurricanes to gel on offense.

Defensively, Miami allowed 26.8 points and 426.4 yards per game last season. Those numbers will have to improve this season, especially with the offense potentially sputtering. Miami has seven starters back, including linebacker Denzel Perryman, who had 108 tackles. Cornerback Tracy Howard is also back after picking off four passes in 2013.

Bet on College Football Futures Odds

Miami doesn’t have much of a light schedule this season. 2014 begins with a road trip to new ACC addition, Louisville on Sept. 1. The Canes will also make road trips to Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Virginia. Miami will get to host the likes of Florida State, Duke, North Carolina, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. Miami actually met Louisville last year in the Russell Athletic Bowl, losing 36-9. If Miami is going to get to eight wins, it has to avoid any major upsets. There are a lot of toss up games that the Canes will have to win as well. But, if Miami stumbles against the weak opponents, their odds of getting to eight wins is slim.
