5* graded play on Miami (Fla) as they visit Ohio State set to start at 3:40 EST. Our proprietary sports handicapping model and simulator shows a high probability that Miami will lose this game by fewer than eight points. Miami is reinforced by an 18-year system that has produced a record of 56-24 for 70% ATS winners. Play on dogs of 3.5 to 10 points in the first two weeks of the season after 1 or more consecutive wins against the spread. If you like the potential for a huge upset win by Miami then not that they are 18-3 against the money line (+16.6 Units) after allowing 3.25 or less yards per play in their previous game since 1992. Ohio State does not have the secondary to stand up consistently for the entire game against the offensive weapons on the Miami side of the ball. The Buckeyes lack the top level speed along the defensive front to create pass protection problems for the Miami offensive line. They will have to bring zone blitz pressure and this is where the game will be won or lost. Harris must make the correct reads in pressure to win this game. He has several weapons to check down too that are more than just relief valve receivers. These weapons include Leonard Hankerson, LaRon Byrd and Aldarius Johnson. If any of these players get matched up in man coverage with a linebacker it will lead to huge plays and possible scores. Take Miami (Fla). Get more football betting picks from John at
