Hurricanes 2021 Schedule
Miami Hurricanes Football
With graduate transfer QB D’Eriq King expected to return in time for the start of the season, the Hurricanes are hoping to improve on last year’s third-place finish in the ACC. While they posted an 8-3 record, they were less impressive against the spread (ATS), going only 6-5.
King will look to lead an offense that performed well in 2020, averaging 34 points per game, and adds Oklahoma transfer Charleston Rambo and two four-star recruits to the receiving room.
You can find all of the Hurricanes’ odds, as well as their full schedule, depth charts, key injuries, news, against-the-spread performance and much more above.
Miami Hurricanes Point Spreads
If you’re confused as to how the Hurricanes could’ve won eight games but covered the spread only six times in 2020, let me explain.
A spread bet is a bet on a team to win by at least a certain number of points (if favored) or lose by less than a certain number (if underdogs). Here’s an example of one way that could look for Miami.
- Miami -1.5 (-110)
- North Carolina +1.5 (-110)
For a Miami spread bet to pay off, it would need to win by at least two points. North Carolina backers, on the other hand, can win if the Tar Heels win or merely lose by one point. All of these are known as “covering the spread.” In the case of a whole number spread, if the favored team wins by that exact amount, bettors on both sides “push” (tie) and get their money back.
Miami Hurricanes Over/Unders
Despite its impressive offense, overs on Miami totals went just 6-5 in 2020, thanks in part to its equally solid defense.
See, over/unders (also known as totals) are bets on the combined scoring of both teams in a game. For its game against North Carolina last year, the total was set at a whopping 72 points. With the Hurricanes losing, 62-26, the combined 88 points between the teams made this an easy win for the over. Had the game finished with fewer than 72 points between the teams, under bettors would’ve won instead.
Had it been, say, 46-26, or any other score adding up to 72, the bet would have been a push and both bets would have been refunded.
Miami Hurricanes Moneylines
A moneyline, another popular type of bet, is just a straightforward wager on which team will win. Favored teams, as the Hurricanes were eight times in 2020, are given a minus sign before their odds, while underdog teams have a plus sign. This may seem confusing, but let’s give an example using a hypothetical $100 wager.
If the Hurricanes were -200 favorites, a bettor would need to risk $200 for the chance to win $100 if Miami prevailed. If they were +200 underdogs, on the other hand, a $100 bet would give a $200 profit in the event of an upset.
Miami Hurricanes Props
With the talented group of skill position players on the Hurricanes, it might be more fun to make a proposition, or prop, bet. Prop bets are listed in a similar fashion as over/unders, but instead of points scored by the teams, we’re looking for statistics accumulated by a player.
For example, if Rambo’s receptions prop is set at 5.5, six or more catches would be a win for the over, while five or fewer would mean under bettors win.
Miami Hurricanes Futures
D’Eriq King currently has the sixth-best odds to take home the Heisman Trophy in the futures market. Futures bets are bets on exactly that: the future. Paid out when the outcome is clear (for example, when the Heisman winner is announced), these bets take place over an entire season.
Some other examples of Hurricanes futures you could bet are the total number of wins on the season, odds to win the ACC, odds to take home the national title, and more.
