Miami and UAB Kickoff Week 2 CFB Betting Thursday Night on ACCN

UAB Blazers at Miami Hurricanes College Football Betting Preview

Alabama Birmingham’s program is an inspiring story of perseverance.  Consider that the UAB program was shut down in 2015 and 2016.  Petty local politics was the reason why.  Head coach Bill Clark never left and refused to surrender.  And his resiliency has been rewarded with three straight bowl seasons.  Miami has been living off its past College football betting reputation for two decades.  “The U” was once the most feared program in the land.  And the most hyped.  Now the Hurricanes are known as all sizzle and no steak.  Head coach Manny Diaz had a brutal 2019 rookie season.

UAB Blazers at Miami Hurricanes CashBet Wagering Analysis

Amazing as it is the casual public still has sportsbook faith in Miami.  To millions of gamblers, Miami is a “this is the year” program.  Even though Miami hasn’t been a national contender since 2002.  Miami is a classic example of college football branding.  Square money flows in based on an image. Documentaries about their glory years of the 1980’s still resonated.  Sharps avoid the Canes like the plague.  Specifically, they see the Canes as a perpetual overlay.  Sophisticated college football gamblers know that their administration is ambivalent about football.  No longer is the sport emphasized at The U.

UAB Blazing New Winning Trails

Namely Bill Clark has coached UAB to consecutive Conference USA division titles.  He has won national Eddie Robinson and Sporting News Coach of the Year honors.  In 2018 the Blazers won the league.  Defense has been the Betting on college football asset for Clark’s teams.  To show UAB ranked ninth in the country for total defense in 2019.

UAB is picked to win its third straight West Division championship.  Again, it is Defense that’s expected to carry the team.  Injuries hampered a tepid offense in 2019.  Quarterback Tyler Johnson III and running back Spencer Brown return.  Most important of all they are healthier than last year.

Miami in Eye of a Hurricane of Hype

Fashion how Manny Diaz epitomizes the Miami program to perfection.  Diaz was hired with great hype after Mark Richt resigned.  As a matter of fact, Diaz wasn’t even interviewed.  His work as Miami’s defensive coordinator and local ties were enough.  However, once bet on NCAAF action started he was outed as out of his depth.  In the same way, the media hype machine continues.  Recruiting is touted to be great.  Just as its been for 20 years.  And then with zero results.

UAB Blazers at Miami Hurricanes Against the Spread

Overall Alabama Birmingham has covered 12 of their last 20 away games.  Just four of their last 11 away tilts have gone over the total.  UAB has been an effective betting value as a double-digit road dog.  As an example, the Blazers have covered seven of their last 11 in that role.  Only three of their last eight as double-digit away pups stayed under.  So too has Alabama Birmingham covered seven of 11 September matchups.  Four of their last six September contests went under

At first, Miami has gotten the money in 12 out of 18 September games.  Six of their last eight September showdowns want over the total.  The U has failed to cover eight of their last 13 home games.  Four of their last seven games at Hard Rock Stadium went over.  As double-digit home chalk, the Canes are 5-8 vs. the line.  While four of their last seven in that situation stunned under.

On this occasion, we have a proven betting on NCAAF value with UAB.  While Miami is a verified overlay.  Time and again The U is priced far above actual ability.
