Miami Hurricanes NCAA Football Betting

The Miami Hurricanes host the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders on Saturday in a game that can be seen on the ACC Network. The Hurricanes had their early season momentum stopped last week in a loss to Texas A&M. The Miami offense was completely stymied and it was overall a poor performance that included some poor coaching. The Hurricanes should not have any trouble this week against a Middle Tennessee State team that should be overmatched. The Blue Raiders played poorly in their opener against James Madison but they have looked good the last two weeks against Colorado State and Tennessee State. Miami is listed as a 26-point home favorite in Week 4 college football odds for this Saturday contest.

Miami Hurricanes Weekly Matchup

On Saturday, September 24, 2022, the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders visit the Miami Hurricanes at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Kickoff time is set for 3:30 p.m. ET with television coverage on the ACC Network.

Miami will need to refocus this week and not overlook a Middle Tennessee State team that can score. The Blue Raiders are averaging 30 points and averaging 313.7 yards per contest. They are giving up 23 points and 334.7 yards per game. Frank Peasant leads the team in rushing with 218 yards, Chase Cunningham has thrown for 592 yards, while Izaiah Gathings has 156 receiving yards.

Miami had looked good in their first two games, but they were outplayed and outcoached in the loss to Texas A&M. The Hurricanes are averaging 36.3 points and putting up 480.7 yards per contest, but you have to take those numbers with a grain of salt, as much of the numbers came against Bethune-Cookman. The Hurricanes are giving up just 12.3 points and 279.3 yards per game. Henry Parrish Jr. leads the team with 290 rushing yards, Tyler Van Dyke has thrown for 663 yards, while Xavier Restrepo has 172 receiving yards.

Miami Hurricanes Weekly Recap

Coach Jimbo Fisher of Texas A&M benched quarterback Haynes King in favor of Max Johnson, a transfer from LSU, and the Aggies defeated Miami last Saturday night thanks to Johnson's performance. In his first start for Texas A&M, Johnson passed for 140 yards and a score, helping the Aggies defeat Miami 17-9.

With approximately three minutes left in the game, two holding calls stopped a drive for Miami who was down by eight points and was forced to punt. When Ainias Smith botched the punt at the 12, the Hurricanes had a chance to recover the ball but Smith snatched the ball up before Miami could touch it. After that, the Hurricanes gained possession once again, but they couldn’t convert a fourth-and-4 with just a few seconds left.

Miami struggled without their best receiver Xavier Restrepo because of a foot injury, and dropped passes became a recurring problem for the squad throughout the game. Despite having 217 passing yards, Tyler Van Dyke was unable to put the Hurricanes in the end zone. Restrepo's foot injury will keep him out for at least six weeks, Cristobal stated following the game.

With about 10 1/2 minutes remaining in the third quarter, Devon Achane increased the advantage to 17-3 with 88 yards of rushing after grabbing a short throw and eluding four defenders his route to a 25-yard touchdown. With almost four minutes left in the third quarter, Andres Borregales kicked a 22-yard field goal to reduce the deficit to 17-6. With 8 1/2 minutes remaining, Borregales' 34-yard field goal pulled Miami within 8 points.

The Hurricanes, who combined for 100 points in their first two games, occasionally had good ball movement, but they were unable to put the ball in the end zone, continually settling for field goals as they suffered their first loss under new coach Mario Cristobal.

"We've got to get better," Cristobal said to the media. "We showed that we can compete in a difficult environment, but competing in itself is just not enough. You've got to execute. You've got prevent shooting yourself in the foot on some things."

Johnson, who started last season at LSU before transferring to A&M, didn't perform that well, completing only 10 of 20 passes but he did, however, appear to give the Aggies a boost after their loss the previous week.

Due to targeting penalties, the Aggies lost two secondary players in the first quarter. With roughly three and a half minutes remaining in the half, cornerback Brian George was dismissed for a hit on Henry Parrish. Just before the end of the quarter, after making a catch, Demani Richardson was sent off for striking Michael Redding III.

Borregales, who missed a 49-yard field goal try in the first quarter, had one from blocked from 36 yards with approximately 11 1/2 minutes left in the second quarter. After the teams traded early field goals, the score was tied at 3. Tyrique Stevenson botched a punt, which Chris Russell recovered on the Miami 25. Three plays later, L.J. Johnson scored on a 1-yard touchdown run to put it 10-3 for Texas A&M, capitalizing on the mistake.
