Florida State vs Miami

Miami vs. Florida State odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from model on 13-1 run After a disappointing loss in the team’s 2020 season opener, the Florida State Seminoles will face the Miami (FL) Hurricanes on Saturday evening. In contrast to Florida State’s slow start, Miami is unblemished after back-to-back victories, including an impressive, double-digit victory over Louisville a week ago. The Hurricanes have won three consecutive meetings in the series, including a 27-10 victory in 2019.

Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. ET in Miami. William Hill lists the Hurricanes as 11-point home favorites, while the over-under, or total number of points expected, is 53.5 in the latest Florida State vs. Miami odds.

Now, the model has set its sights on FSU vs. Miami. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the college football odds from William Hill and trends for Miami vs. FSU:

Florida State vs. Miami spread: Miami -11
Florida State vs. Miami over-under: 53.5 points
Florida State vs. Miami money line: Miami -410, Florida State +330
FSU: The Seminoles were 4-3-1 against the spread in ACC games in 2019
MIA: The Hurricanes are 2-0 against the spread this season
Why Florida State can cover
Florida State’s season began on a sour note, but this is a very talented roster. The Seminoles routinely rank among the top 20 nationally in recruiting, with more than a handful of five-star prospects still on the roster. Defensively, highly-touted defensive tackle Marvin Wilson leads the way, with an All-ACC selection in 2019 after contributing 44 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and five sacks. He is joined by Asante Samuel Jr., a high-profile cornerback who earned preseason All-ACC honors and contributed two interceptions in the opener against Georgia Tech.

On the offensive side, Florida State does have real questions on the offensive line, but wide receiver Tamorrion Terry is a high-level playmaker on the outside. Terry was a second team All-ACC selection in 2019 after generating 1,188 receiving yards and nine touchdowns, and he will put pressure on Miami’s defensive backfield throughout the game. Terry also has an experienced quarterback at the helm, with James Blackman accruing more than 5,000 career passing yards and 42 passing touchdowns across three-plus seasons.

Why Miami can cover
Miami’s offense is tremendously explosive, with Houston transfer D’Eriq King bringing a new level of talent to the quarterback position. In two games this season, King has thrown for 469 yards, rushed for 92 yards and accumulated five total touchdowns. He is averaging 8.7 yards per attempt, and King has attempted 54 passes without an interception.

King is also flanked by strong play at the running back position, with junior Cam’Ron Harris leading the ACC in rushing through two games. Harris has 268 yards on only 26 carries, and he has reached the end zone on three occasions already in 2020. Defensively, Miami has created havoc with four sacks and 18 tackles for loss, with the Hurricanes generating a 76 percent stop rate on third down.

How to make Miami vs. Florida State picks
SportsLine’s model is leaning under on the total. In fact, it says Florida State running back La’Damian Webb rushes for only 41 rushing yards and no Miami pass catcher projected for more than 52 yards receiving. It also says one side of the spread hits in over 50 percent of simulations. You can only get the pick at SportsLine.

So who wins FSU vs. Miami? And which side of the spread hits over 50 percent of the time? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Miami vs. FSU spread to back, all from the advanced model that is up over $3,800 on its top-rated college football spread picks, and find out.

Running back Isaiah Spiller is also expected to be a major factor in Jimbo Fisher’s offense this season. Spiller ran the ball 174 times for 946 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, and now he’ll look to take advantage of a Vanderbilt defense that gave up 467.1 yards per game last year.

The Crimson Tide have one of the SEC’s best running backs in Najee Harris. The senior has ran for over 2,300 yards in three seasons at Alabama. The 2019 campaign was his best overall as he recorded 209 carries for 1,224 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. He also proved to be a lethal pass catching back last season, recording 27 receptions for 304 yards and seven scores.

Quarterback Mac Jones enters the 2020 season as the Crimson Tide’s starting quarterback. After taking over for the injured Tua Tagovailoa last season, Jones completed over 66 percent of his passes for 1,626 yards, 15 touchdowns and just three interceptions.

What you need to know about Missouri
Missouri struggled down the stretch last season, winning just one of its final six games. That led to a head coaching change and the Tigers brought in Eli Drinkwitz, who led Appalachian State to a 13-win season a year ago. Drinkwitz is expected to start TCU transfer Shawn Robinson at quarterback on Saturday against the Crimson Tide.

Robinson completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 1,518 yards, 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions with the Horned Frogs in 2018. He also ran the ball 49 times for 230 yards and three scores, and his dual-threat ability will be tested early and often against a stingy Alabama defense that gave up just 18.6 points per game last season.

Army vs Cincinnati

Army vs Cincinnati: The Army West Point Black Knights have had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. They are packing up and heading on the road for their first away matchup this season. They face off against the Cincinnati Bearcats on Saturday at Nippert Stadium at 3:30 p.m. ET. These two teams are sauntering into the matchup backed by comfortable wins in their prior games.

Two weeks ago, Army West Point turned the game against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks into a track meet and took the gold after outgaining them 465 yards to 187. The Black Knights were the clear victors by a 37-7 margin over Louisiana-Monroe. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Army West Point had established a 30-7 advantage. RB Jakobi Buchanan was the offensive standout of the contest for Army West Point, rushing for two TDs and 106 yards on 11 carries. Buchanan’s performance made up for a slower game against the Middle Tenn. Blue Raiders three weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Cincinnati was the big favorite in their most recent matchup, and for good reason. They steamrolled past the Austin Peay Governors 55-20 at home. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point the Bearcats had established a 42-6 advantage. Among those leading the charge for them was RB Gerrid Doaks, who punched in three rushing touchdowns in addition to snatching one receiving TD. QB Desmond Ridder’s longest connection was to Doaks for 26 yards in the first quarter.

Their wins bumped the Black Knights to 2-0 and Cincinnati to 1-0. After both teams made easy work of their previous opponents, one of them is set up to suffer a discouraging change of fortune.

Texas vs Texas Tech

Texas vs Texas Tech: It is finally time to stop with all the game previews. The kickoff between the Texas Longhorns and Texas Tech Red Raiders is almost upon us. This is the first Big 12 Conference game for both teams. Both teams won their opener, which means only one of these two teams will leave with a perfect record in tact. The No. 8 Texas Longhorns face off against the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the Big 12 opener for both programs on Saturday. Texas opened the 2020 season with a dominant 59-3 win over UTEP, with Texas Tech largely underwhelming in a 35-33 win over Houston Baptist in its first contest. The Longhorns enter Saturday’s Big 12 battle having won eight of their last 10 games against the Red Raiders.

Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. ET in Lubbock, Texas. William Hill lists the Longhorns as 17.5-point road favorites, while the over-under, or total number of points expected, is set at 70.5 in the latest Texas vs. Texas Tech odds.

Now, the model has set its sights on Texas vs. Texas Tech. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the college football odds from William Hill and trends for Texas Tech vs. Texas:

Texas vs. Texas Tech spread: Longhorns -17.5
Texas vs. Texas Tech over-under: 70.5 points
Texas vs. Texas Tech money line: Texas -800, Texas Tech +550
TEX: The Longhorns are 8-6 against the spread in the last 14 games
TTU: The Red Raiders were 4-4-1 against the spread in Big 12 games in 2019
Why Texas can cover
The opener was very kind to Texas, as the Longhorns are currently the No. 1 offense in college football this season, accumulating 689 yards against UTEP. In 2019, the Longhorns were also prolific, ranking as a top-15 offense nationally in averaging more than 465 yards per game. Texas converted that yardage into points as well, averaging more than 35 points per game, and quarterback Sam Ehlinger returns as the centerpiece of the offense.

The four-year contributor at quarterback put up 3,663 yards, 32 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions in 2019, and he racked up 426 yards and five touchdowns in Texas’ season opener. He has a pair of quality receivers in Michigan transfer Tarik Black and sophomore Joshua Moore, both of whom scored touchdowns against UTEP, and the Texas Tech defense projects to provide little resistance. The Red Raiders allowed 600 yards to an underwhelming opponent in Houston Baptist.

Why Texas Tech can cover
Texas Tech is an explosive offensive team, and that was on display in the team’s opener. The Red Raiders received 430 passing yards from quarterback Alan Bowman in their first victory, with the signal-caller averaging 8.3 yards per attempt. Running back SaRodorick Thompson also had an impressive start to the season, rushing for 118 yards and two touchdowns against Houston Baptist.

Defense is certainly a concern for Texas Tech in this matchup but, from a hidden yardage standpoint, the Red Raiders finished in the top five nationally in net punting in 2019, and special teams could be crucial as they pursue an upset victory on Saturday.

How to make Texas vs. Texas Tech picks
SportsLine’s model is leaning under on the total. In fact, it says Texas’ Keaontay Ingram rushes for just 53 yards, while Bowman throws a touchdown and an interception for the Red Raiders. The model also says one side of the spread hits in almost 60 percent of simulations. You can only get the pick at SportsLine.

Mississippi State vs LSU

Mississippi State vs LSU: The time for the No. 6 LSU Tigers to begin defending their 2019 national championship finally has come, although the team will have a decidedly different look. A total of 14 members of last year’s title-winning squad were selected in the 2020 NFL Draft while reigning Fred Biletnikoff Award winner Ja’Marr Chase opted out of this season in order to concentrate on his professional career. The Tigers open a new era when they host the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday. Kickoff from Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, LSU and Mississippi State had to wait several weeks to begin their seasons as the SEC revamped its schedule, which consists of only 10 conference games for each school. The Tigers are 16.5-point favorites in the latest LSU vs. Mississippi State odds from William Hill, while the over-under for total points scored is 57.

LSU vs. Mississippi State spread: Tigers -16.5
LSU vs. Mississippi State over-under: 57.5 points
LSU vs. Mississippi State money line: Tigers -800, Bulldogs +550
LSU: The Tigers are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games as home favorites
MSU: The Bulldogs are 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games
Why LSU can cover
Ed Orgeron begins his fourth full season at the helm after guiding the Tigers to a 15-0 record and the fourth national championship in program history last year. LSU went 34-7 over the former Ole Miss coach’s first three years with the school. Orgeron is 6-0 in season openers, winning three times with both the Tigers and Rebels, while LSU has won its first game 16 of the last 17 campaigns.

With 2019 Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow now with the Cincinnati Bengals, the reins have been handed to fourth-year junior Myles Brennan. The 6-4 quarterback who hails from Mississippi appeared in 17 games over his first three years with the Tigers, completing 42-of-70 passes for 600 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. Brennan saw action in 10 contests last season, including the CFP semifinal against Oklahoma in which he was 3-of-3 for 39 yards while leading LSU on a nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive late in the fourth quarter.

Why Mississippi State can cover
The Bulldogs have turned to Mike Leach with hopes of avoiding back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 2008-09 after going 6-7 last year. Leach, who became the winningest coach in Texas Tech history during his tenure from 2000-09, replaces Joe Moorhead after posting a 55-47 record over eight campaigns at Washington State. His teams are known for their aerial attack as he leads all active FBS head coaches with the most average passing yards per game since 2001 (394.5) and is first in completion percentage over the last eight years (66.9 percent).

Leach’s quarterbacks have thrown for at least 3,000 yards in 17 of his 18 seasons as a head coach, and K.J. Costello will attempt to continue the trend. A graduate transfer from Stanford, Costello appeared in only five games for the Cardinal last year due to head and thumb injuries but became just the ninth signal-caller in school history to throw for over 6,000 yards (6,151). He recorded eight 300-yard performances in 29 games over three seasons with Stanford.

PITT: The Panthers are seeking their first 3-0 start since 2014
Why Pittsburgh can cover
The Panthers are led by senior quarterback Kenny Pickett, who has completed nearly 70 percent of his passes for 492 yards and three touchdowns. He has been picked off once this season. Last season, Pickett started 12 games and had the highest passing production of his college career, completing 289-of-469 passes for 3,098 yards with 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Pickett set Pittsburgh season records for attempts and completions.

Freshman wide receiver Jordan Addison has been Pickett’s top target, with 14 receptions for 92 yards and one touchdown. Addison was a versatile performer in high school, playing several positions, including wide receiver, quarterback and defensive back. As a senior, he averaged 21.8 yards per catch with 25 receptions for 544 yards and eight touchdowns.

Why Louisville can cover
The Cardinals have a history of playing well after a loss. After each defeat last year, Louisville rebounded with a win and averaged 36.6 points per game in doing so. Junior quarterback Micale Cunningham has completed 45-of-70 passes for 650 yards and six touchdowns this season. A year ago, he set the school record for passing efficiency with a mark of 194.45. In his career, he has passed for 3,288 yards and 29 touchdowns.

Hawkins has also been a solid contributor for Louisville, rushing 46 times for 235 yards and two scores. In the loss to Miami, Hawkins ran for 164 yards, the ninth 100-yard rushing game of his career, tying him for seventh on the Cardinals’ career rushing list. He is also the ninth player in school history to record three games of at least 150 yards rushing. In 2019, Hawkins rushed for a Louisville record 1,525 yards.

Two last-season numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Georgia Southern threw only one interception last year, which ranked first among all teams in the nation.
