Last year was rebuilding year in Miami will payoff big in 2014-15. The Gators are deserving favorites but this young Florida team better not overlook this dangerous Hurricanes sqaud. Miami looked great in opening win and think Hurricanes are live underdogs here. Love getting nearly double digits with Miami, final score prediction, Florida Gators win but fail to cover ATS 70-64.
