Mi­ami-Florida over ARKANSAS ST by 10

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

Check out these stats: the Canes are 6-0 ATS after un­lined home games, 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as non-con­fer­ence road fa­vorites and 6-2 in the 1st of back-to-back road tilts. Yes, lots of good num­bers, but ASU brings a full com­ple­ment as well. The strength of Mark Richt’s team is ex­pected to be its de­fense, but there is con­cern after al­low­ing marsh­mal­low BethuneCook­man 350 yards of of­fense last week. For Arky State, QB Jus­tice Hansen was 46-of-68 for 415 yards (to nine dif­fer­ent re­ceivers) in the Red Wolves’ near-up­set at Ne­braska last week After pulling within a TD late in the 4th quar­ter, Blake An­der­son’s squad re­cov­ered the on­side kick and moved to the Ne­braska 11 with 9 sec­onds to play be­fore two in­com­plete passes ended it. Hansen won 8 of his 10 starts last sea­son en route to ASU’s fifth Sun Belt Con­fer­ence ti­tle in six years, and Arkansas State is 7-0 ATS in the first of con­sec­u­tive home con­tests and 4-0 ATS as dou­ble digit home dogs. And while Mi­ami won last year’s matchup 41-20 in South Florida, this year’s edi­tion of the Red Wolves will not go down easy in Jones­boro.
