Home Team Dominating ATS Between UNC, Miami

ACC Coastal rivals renew acquaintances when the North Carolina Tar Heels visit the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday. The ’Canes have the historical advantage on their side, as the home team has covered in the past four meetings between these two teams.

SHARK BITES
  • Miami is 6-0 ATS in its last 6 games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in UNC’s last 3 games on the road against Miami.
  • Miami is 8-2 SU in its last 10 games at home after a loss at home.

It will be important to keep tabs on Brad Kaaya, as he will be held out of practice early in the week to rest up. Though he is fully expected to start Saturday, he took plenty of big hits last week against FSU. The junior has completed 64.6 percent of his passes this season with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions.

Hurricane Matthew and Virginia Tech completely took apart UNC last week, as the Tar Heels lost 34-3 to the Hokies. Tar Heels’ quarterback Mitch Trubisky was completely stymied by VT’s defense, as the junior went 13-for-33 and threw his first two interceptions of the season.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The home Miami-FL Hurricanes were -7-point favorites in this NCAA football battle at Bovada earlier (watch for line movement). No over under line was available early in the week, but was set to be posted shortly.
