Undefeated Hurricanes Aim to Extend Dominance over Fading Panthers

miami-defense

The Miami Hurricanes will be gunning for a seventh straight outright win in Pittsburgh when they visit the Panthers on Friday for a Week 13 ACC matchup at Heinz Field. The red-hot Hurricanes ride a 15-game SU win streak, currently the longest in the nation, while Pittsburgh is winless in two after dropping a 20-14 decision at Virginia Tech as a 14-point underdog last weekend.

Shark Bites
  • Miami is 5-1 ATS in its last six games against Pittsburgh.
  • The total has gone OVER in three of Miami’s last four games against Pittsburgh.
  • Pittsburgh is 2-5 SU in its last seven games against its conference.

The Hurricanes demonstrated huge character by overcoming a 14-point deficit in an entertaining 44-28 win over Virginia as 19.5-point home chalk last weekend. The point total went OVER a conservative 49.0 against the Cavaliers, ending a seven-game run for the UNDER. A stingy defense has kept point totals low. Miami has surrendered just 16.75 points per game over its past eight, while tallying 42.5 ppg in its past two.

The Panthers are a middling 3-3 SU on home turf this season, and suffered a stunning 34-31 loss to North Carolina as 10-point chalk in their last home date two weeks ago. Pittsburgh has rewarded loyal sports bettors with ATS wins in three of four, but has enjoyed little success when pegged as a double-digit home underdog, losing SU and ATS in its past three.

Miami dominated in a 51-28 victory over the Panthers as 4.5-point home chalk in November 2016 to improve to 10-1 SU in its past 11 meetings with Pittsburgh, and has claimed victory by an average margin of 18.2 ppg during a 6-0 SU run in visits to Steeltown.
