The Florida State Seminoles head on the road to take on the Miami Hurricanes in an ACC battle taking place in Coral Gables, Florida. This one has the potential to offer one of the best college basketball bets today, assuming Miami can keep trucking offensively against an unproven Florida State squad. This game will tip off at 7:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday night.

Taking Under 158 When Florida State and Miami Meet
While both Florida State and Miami have flashed the offensive upside to clear this total, I’m weary of buying too much stock in the Seminoles just yet. Their 4-1 record in the ACC has come against a mediocre group of teams overall. But Miami has also had its fair share of slip-ups, which is a cause for concern, including a loss to Louisville two games ago. I think we’ll see the two teams do enough defensively to keep this game under the total.
Tailing Miami -7 at Home
There are several noteworthy aspects to this game, making it an interesting game to cap for today’s NCAAB expert picks. One major point to consider is that Miami’s second-leading scorer, Matthew Cleveland, transferred to the school from Florida State, so there may be a bit of a revenge factor here.
But overall, the Hurricanes boast a well-rounded offensive group, with four players averaging 13 points or more per game. I think they’ll be too much in the end for an unproven Florida State team and will be able to cover this one and win by double-digits.
Passing on the Moneyline in Florida State vs Miami
I like the Hurricanes to get the job done and pick up the victory at home, and at -7, their moneyline odds unsurprisingly don’t make much sense as a play here. If you buy any stock in Florida State and believe they can pull off the road upset, odds of +250 are worth kicking around, but I’m passing on this college basketball betting option tonight.
