College Basketball Betting Trends
The Hurricanes are 7-21 ATS in their last 28 games overall. Miami is 0-4 ATS in its last four games versus the ACC.
The Seminoles are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. Florida State is 0-7 ATS in its last seven Wednesday games.
Both teams looked out of sorts last game, but I have a difficult time trusting Florida State as a double-digit favorite right now after being undressed by Virginia. I don't doubt the Seminoles are a very good team and are going to be solid the rest of the season, but I feel like bouncing back strong might be difficult after falling badly in what could have been a statement game. I'm going to take Miami with the points today.
