Miami vs Florida State Prediction

Miami is coming into this game as a 3 point favorite with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Miami has been playing much better in their recent games than they were at the beginning of the season and they look like a much improved team as they have been consistent in their last 3 games winning all of them. FSU is still very inconsistent in their games and they have not played well all season. They had a 3 game stretch where they were playing well but that has faded now and they have regressed back to their poor play. The best bet to place in this game is on Miami to cover the spread here as these two teams are trending in opposite directions and Miami will just keep improving more each week until the season ends.
