The Hurricanes are 7-3 this season while Duke is 5-5. Miami will be trying to finish the season strongly vs. the college football betting lines and make a nice bowl game.
College football odds have respected Miami this season but the Hurricanes have been up and down. They have done well against Duke though, winning the last five against the Blue Devils. "Our next game is on senior day and our focus has to be on Duke and having seniors go out with a win at home," head coach Randy Shannon said. "That's our biggest focus this week and we'll start with that."
Miami quarterback Jacory Harris has a lot of talent and has shown great ability this season but he leads the country with 16 interceptions, including four last week in the college football odds loss to North Carolina. "We don't blame Jacory at all for that loss," Shannon said. "It was a total team effort. We had some plays on defense that we could have held them on, a couple of plays on punt returns that if guys stay on their blocks, we probably could have had touchdown opportunities. For us as a team, we blame ourselves." Last season the Hurricanes outscored Duke 49-31 in college football odds as Harris threw four touchdowns and two interceptions.
Duke is a better team than a year ago but to make a bowl game they would have to upset Miami in college football odds and also win their final game.
