If I were a betting man, I wouldn't like this game at all. Miami was 5-7 ATS on the year while the Gamecocks were 4-8. Both teams made it a habit of not showing up when they were expected to win but playing a bit over their heads in games where blowouts were expected to materialize. When two thoroughly inconsistent teams get together, who knows what will happen?
