The 2019 College football season is just around the corner and the Week 1 bets on FanDuel Sportsbook have already started coming in, especially for the Saturday, Aug. 24, matchup between the Miami Hurricanes and Florida Gators.

Despite meeting with Miami at a neutral site in Orlando (Camping World Stadium), Florida is currently a seven-point favorite (-105), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

These two programs haven't played each other since 2013, when an unranked Hurricanes' team upset a then-No. 12 Florida squad at home in Miami Gardens. This could set the stage for a similar outcome again this year, as Florida will enter the game expected to be ranked in the top 10 of the first 2019 AP Top-25 Poll.

Miami has an 8-2 record against Florida over the last 10 series meetings, dating back to 1984. However, at +205 odds to win this matchup outright, Miami is the clear underdog looking to pull off an upset over a playoff-hopeful team.

In terms of volume wagered on early college football games, Oregon vs Auburn at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, has been the most popular bet.
