College Football Picks and Odds: Gators and Hurricanes Clash in Miami

gators-fans-not-so-hotThe Miami Hurricanes play host to the Florida Gators in what is sure to be an exciting college football picks contest. It's week 2 of the college football betting season and the Florida Gators have kicked things off by devouring the Toledo Rockets in a 24-06 win to open the college football betting season last week. The #12 Gators will be heading to Sun Life Stadium for week two of the college football schedule to face the Hurricanes who also blew away the Florida Atlantic Owls in their week 1 college football picks contest.

The rivalry between these two teams goes way back, but after today's contest the SEC could potentially be moving to a nine game conference schedule, so it could be long time before we see this college football picks matchup again. If you ever wanted to bet on the Gators or bet on the Hurricanes, this may be the last opportunity you get for a long time.

The statistics show the Hurricanes dominate on total, passing, rushing yards as well as point scored, but 60% of sports bettors are taking the Florida Gators with the -3(-105) point spread set by Vegas odds makers.

The weather forecast for this week 2 college football picks contest does show a 40% chance of showers which could make the passing game difficult for both teams. The Gators will be returning running back Matt Jones who rushed for 275 yards season and will also be getting back five players who were suspended for their 2013 College football season opener, four of which are linebacker Antonio Morrison, cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy, offensive lineman Quinteze Williams and defensive tackle Darious Cummings.

The 2013 matchup stats between these two teams are dead even with the exception of the Hurricanes edging out the Gators with 34.0 points scored versusFlorida's 24. Both teams are 1-0, average 6 points allowed, and have a home record of 1-0.
