Southern Miss vs Miami Prediction & Pick

The Mario Cristobal era is off to a strong start after the Hurricanes score 70 last week vs Bethune-Cookman. Southern Miss lost in four overtimes to Liberty 29-27, and duel threat QB Ty Keyes is day-to-day after getting nailed in the chin and knocked out of the game in the second quarter.

Southern Miss turned to their Super Back Wildcat spinoff with star RB Frank Gore, Jr. They'll run the ball often if they can stay within range, but it will be difficult with Miami stacking the box and the Hurricanes balancing the offense with more passing this week. Miami does play at Texas A&M next week which is a lookahead situation that could prevent another big blowout.

Final Score Prediction: Miami 40 | Southern Miss: 13

The status of Southern Miss QB Ty Keys makes the Golden Eagles side and game total more speculative. But Miami will likely show more in the passing game this week and should roll early for bettors interested in first half wagering with less scoring in the second half.

Bet: Miami -24.5 (-110)
