Miami vs. FSU Handicapping Free Pick
Will Miami slow down Florida State's freshman scoring duo of Malik Beasley and Dwayne Bacon for the second time this season?
The Hurricanes and Seminoles will meet for the second time this season tonight at 6:35PM ET after Miami beat FSU 72-59 at home on January 9. In that game, Beasley and Bacon combined for just 23 points on 9-of-28 shooting.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Seminoles are now 1.5-point home favorites over the Hurricanes after the game opened as a pick'em. The total, meanwhile, hasn't moved after it opened at 148.5 points.
Despite holding FSU's talented freshman duo in check in the first meeting, Beasley and Bacon still form the highest-scoring freshman tandem in the country with a combined average of 33.2 points. The Seminoles should be plenty motivated tonight after Syracuse ruined their four-game winning streak on Thursday, not to mention this is a revenge spot for FSU with Miami winning in January.
The Seminoles are 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 games following a failed cover while the Hurricanes are just 1-4 at the betting window in thier last five road games. Take Florida State -1.5 and check out more from Lock Labs. You can also purchase picks here.
