What to Know
The Miami (FL) Hurricanes will look to defend their home turf Saturday against the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils at 12:30 p.m. ET. Both of these teams will be looking for a pick-me-up after considerable defeats in their previous games.
The point spread favored Miami (FL) last week, but luck did not. They have to be aching after a bruising 38-17 defeat to the Michigan State Spartans. This matchup was a close 10-7 at the break, but unfortunately for the Hurricanes it sure didn't stay that way. QB D'Eriq King had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball twice.
Meanwhile, Central Connecticut State took a serious blow against the Southeastern Louisiana Lions last week, falling 56-10. Central Connecticut State was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 28-3.
This next game looks promising for Miami (FL), who are favored by a full 46 points. True fans might be the only ones betting on them, currently 0-2 ATS, to cover the spread.
The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 1-2. Neither Miami (FL) (1-0 after losses) nor the Blue Devils (also 1-0) has made a habit of hanging their heads after losses this year, so another slip-up will be unusual territory for either team.
