Our Selection : The Hurricanes are definitely improved this season, but they do find themselves in a tight spot hosting the Gators. I’d like to have seen a 7 here, but the Oddsmakers put up a sharp line of 3. The total is where I’m going to go here. Both teams proved that they can score and the total is low enough here for me to grab the Over at 48. Take Over 48 points at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
