Miami Florida vs. Clemson
College Football Point Spread Pick: Miami +10 (December 2nd 2017)

I find it fascinating how quickly the narrative has changed for Miami. Just three weeks ago the media couldn’t sing the Hurricane’s praise enough after their emphatic 41-8 blowout win over then No. 3 Notre Dame. A sluggish showing against Virginia early in a 44-28 win and an outright loss at Pitt in the regular season finale and now all you hear about is how this team has no chance of knocking off the defending champs.

So little is thought of this team, that the books have inflated this line to double-digits and the public is still throwing down their cash on the Tigers. Keep in mind that Deshaun Watson and that great Clemson team last year was only a 10-point favorite against a Virginia Tech team that I don’t think was anywhere as good as this Miami team.

I not only think the Hurricanes can keep it close enough to cover, but I see no reason why they can’t win this game outright. Head coach Mark Richt did an amazing job this season playing the lack of respect card with his team and no more so than in that game at home against the Irish, where they were an underdog. I love how little people are talking about this team, as I think they play their best football in this spot.

The recent losses of wide out Ahmmon Richards and tight end Chris Herndon are big blows to Miami’s offense, but I think they can make enough plays here to put some points on the board. More than anything, I’m counting on a huge game from the Hurricanes defense. I look for them to really cause problems up front for Clemson and find a way to create some turnovers to help out the offense with a short field. Give me the Hurricanes +10!
