FSU basketball vs. Miami Odds and Prediction
WynnBET’s updated odds have the Noles as +2.5 point betting underdogs on the road. The over/under point total is 146.5, which implies a 75-72 type of game. Miami checks in at No. 59 in the latest KenPom rankings, and the Noles checked in at No. 53. Miami has the No. 20 ranked offense and the No. 165 defense. The Canes average 76.8 ppg and have three starters averaging in double figures while shooting 47 percent from the floor. They average 36 percent from three-point land and 74 percent from the charity stripe. They only average nine turnovers per game.
The biggest factor going into this game is FSU basketball playing its fourth game in eight days and third this week. Miami hasn’t played since Tuesday and will have the home-court advantage. Ironically, FSU was a -6.5 betting favorite the first time these two teams faced off. FSU is the more balanced team, and Miami typically lives and dies with their offense. Matthew Cleveland, Anthony Polite, and RayQuan Evans had big games for the Noles in the first matchup. They dominated the boards and made 13 of 16 free throws. If they take good shots and avoid silly turnovers? I’ll give them a shot at continuing their winning streak against the Canes. However, I picked against the Noles the last few games and have been wrong, so I might as well keep that going.
Prediction: Miami 73, FSU 70
