Miami vs. Minnesota Pick

Miami vs. Minnesota College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread

In one of the featured games in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, No. 12 Minnesota is set to host No. 10 Miami tonight at 9:15PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Minnesota is favored at home tonight, as the Golden Gophers are getting odds of -5 points against Miami. The over/under total has been set at 143 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Williams Arena in Minneapolis, Minnesota and will air live on ESPN2.

Miami is off to a 5-0 start to the season thanks to a win over North Florida last weekend. The Hurricanes have played in just one lined game, covering a 10.5-point spread against LaSalle. Miami is averaging only 79.8 points per game this season, but the Hurricanes are holding opponents to 54 per contest. Dewan Huell is leading Miami with 13.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. Bruce Brown Jr. is adding 9.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per contest.

Minnesota is coming off an 89-84 win over Alabama last weekend to improve to 7-0 on the season. The Golden Gophers are 5-1 against the spread this season, including the one game where it was an underdog. Minnesota is averaging 90.7 points per game this season while allowing just 69.7 per game. Jordan Murphy is averaging 22 points and 12.3 rebounds per game to lead the Gophers while Reggie Lynch is adding 11.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.

Bet on Miami vs. Minnesota

These two have split their last two meetings with each covering the spread in their respective win. Miami is just 1-5 against the spread in their last six against Big Ten opponents and 1-8 ATS in their last nine non-conference lined games. Minnesota has covered the spread in four of their last five at home and five of their last six non-conference games. The public betting is siding with Minnesota tonight. Minnesota seems a little more tested than Miami and I think the Gophers will cover at home.
