Miami bounces back from loss to LSU
After the 33-17 loss to LSU in the opener, Miami bounced back last week by dominating Savannah State for a 77-0 win. The Hurricanes are 1-1 against the spread through the two games and 2-0 with the over. Miami has hit the over in its last three games as a program.
It’s hard to gauge Miami for this game due to the great difference in their two opponents. The Hurricanes are averaging 47 points and 418 yards per game on offense while giving up 16.5 points and just 187 yards per game. Malik Rosier has thrown for 390 yards and three touchdowns to lead the offense while three different backs have over 80 rushing yards for the Canes. Jeff Thomas has reeled in six passes for 199 yards and a touchdown.
Toledo gets week off
Toledo opened the season with a 66-3 win over VMI back on Sept. 1. They had the week off last week to prepare for this game with Miami. The Rockets covered the 48.5-point spread against VMU while going well over the 57-point total.
The Rockets were rolling in the opener against VMI, posting 603 yards of total offense in the win while holding the Keydets to 235 total yards and forcing three turnovers. Quarterback Mitchell Guadagni threw for 265 yards and three touchdowns in the win while nine different players combined for 213 rushing yards and five touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Hurricanes have hit the under in eight of their last nine road games, but have hit the over in four of their last five non-conference contests.
Toledo has hit the over in seven of its last 10 non-conference games and in six of its last seven games in September.
These two put up a big total in their game last year in Miami, with the Canes winning 52-30. Oddsmakers are expecting a tamed result this year. I don’t see it though. Miami definitely has the athletes to break big plays against a MAC school, on the road or at home. Toledo should be amped up for this game as well and pull a few tricks out of its sleeves. This is a big home game for Toledo. I expect the Rockets to leave it all on the field, which should make this an explosive game with plenty of points.
