Round of 64 Betting Lines
#15 Pacific Tigers +12
#2 Miami Hurricanes -12
The assumption is that Miami is just going to walk into Austin and trounce the Tigers on Friday. The Hurricanes do have an impressive resume, knowing that they have wins against teams like Duke and Michigan State on the season. However, we remain concerned. Remember that “The U” also was beaten by a dozen by Florida Gulf Coast out of conference and then Wake Forest and Georgia Tech in ACC play. There are definitely some reasons to believe that this game could be scary. The Tigers shoot 38.3 percent from three point range, and though they aren’t the best scoring team in the Big West at just 67.5 points per game, they are definitely a potentially lethal squad. G Lorenzo McCloud and several others have the ability to knock down the big time shot. No one is averaging more than 11.4 points per game, but six players are averaging at least 6.0 points per game. All of these men can shoot the ball from inside or out, and they’re all good foul shooters as well. For as well as Miami is playing right now, and we aren’t denying that, this is a lot of points to be laying in a game such as this. The Tigers could really be putting the Hurricanes on upset alert.
