(TheSpread) – The Miami Hurricanes made small progress in 2012. Will Miami take another step forward in the 2013 college football season?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Miami has been given 33/1 odds to win the 2014 BCS National Championship. The Hurricanes have also been given odds of +575 to win the ACC Championship and a money line of +110 to win the ACC Coastal Division. The over/under for wins for Miami has been set at 8.5.

Al Golden is in his third season as head coach of the Hurricanes. Golden went 6-6 with Miami in 2011 and then improved to 7-5 in 2012. This year’s team seems set for another improved season, as they return 18 starters from the 2012 squad.

Miami averaged 31.4 points and 440 yards per game last year, its best numbers in quite some time. This year’s offense has 10 starters back, including the entire offensive line, top three receivers and top rusher. Along with all that, Miami brings back senior quarterback Stephen Morris, who threw for 3,345 yards and 21 touchdowns in 2012. Morris is a preseason Heisman Trophy candidate, and has been given 25/1 odds to win the award this year. Another Heisman contender Miami has is sophomore running back Duke Johnson. He rushed for 947 yards and 10 touchdowns last season and also had 221 receiving yards. He will have a bigger role with the offense this season and has 14/1 odds to win the Heisman Trophy.

Defensively is where Miami needs to see improvements. The Hurricanes allowed 30.5 points and 486 yards per game, including 218 rushing yards per contest in 2012. The defense has eight starters back this year, including three on the front line and two linebackers. That should help improve the rushing numbers from a year ago. It should also help improve the poor sack numbers from last year, as Miami had just 13 sacks in 2012.

When it comes to wins, nine won’t be an easy task for the Hurricanes. Miami hosts Florida and travels to South Florida in non-conference play. When it comes to the ACC, Miami travels to North Carolina, Florida State and Pittsburgh, while hosting Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech. With a bowl game in the mix, Miami can get there, but I don’t know that the Hurricanes have what it takes quite yet to reach the ACC Championship Game.
