The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders travel to South Beach to take on the Miami Hurricanes as part of the NCAA on Saturday, September 24.

Miami faced one of the SEC’s worst teams last week but couldn’t extend its perfect record and couldn’t even find the end zone. It was a close game, but a touchdown was the difference in Texas A&M’s 17-9 victory.

The Blue Raiders, meanwhile, were absolutely pumped in Week 1 by James Madison University 44-7. However, they vented their frustrations on their next two opponents. First, they beat the Colorado State Rams 34-19 before beating Tennessee State 49-6.

Miami is by far the toughest opponent they’ll face this year, and even to keep this game at close range, they’ll have to step up.

Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders vs Miami Hurricanes Best Pick

The Blue Raiders should rack up points here; there’s no reason to think a shutout or anything like that is in play this week. However, for Miami to cover, they will need to score close to 50 points. Over bets are the smart play here.

Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders vs Miami Hurricanes Prediction

Twenty-five is a pretty high number, and while Miami is more than capable of beating Middle Tennessee by that margin, it’s unclear what would happen late in the game.

Hurricanes could be up 40; bring them into the second and third strings, they give up 20 points, and suddenly they’re not covering. It’s an extreme situation, but it’s something that can happen.

Bettors shouldn’t expect that to happen in this one, though. Miami will be upset with their loss to Texas A&M and should give the Blue Raiders a beating. Hurricanes with easy cover in this one.

Miami -25.5 (-110)
