‘Canes, Seminoles Both Struggling ATS

The Miami Hurricanes and Florida State Seminoles enter their clash Sunday as a poor play for bettors. The ‘Canes are just 3-5-1 ATS in their past nine while the Seminoles are a paltry 2-4-1 ATS in their past seven.

Shark Bites
  • The Seminoles are 9-2 SU in their past 11 games at home.
  • Miami is 2-8 SU in their past 10 games when visiting Florida State.
  • The UNDER is nine of Miami’s past 12 games.

FSU was held to a season-low 59 points and shot a measly 35.4 percent when they visited Miami last month. Sheldon McClellan went off for the ‘Canes in that game with the guard scoring 21 points while hitting all seven shots he took during the second half.

Miami enters Sunday on a three-game winning streak and have only dropped one of their past seven. McClellan has been one of the most consistent point scorers in the country as the senior has scored double-digit points in 11 consecutive contests.

The freshman guard combo of Malik Beasley and Dwayne Bacon have been near unstoppable at home this season with the duo averaging over 32 points while shooting 51 percent from the floor in Pensacola.
