Point Spread Pick:
The Hurricanes are a profitable 7-5 ATS on the road this season with some very strong conference games on their resume. Road wins over North Carolina and Florida State are impressive and a performance anywhere close to those not only gets Miami the cover but the outright win. Clemson is 12-2 at home but can’t be counted on to extend the margin. Take the Miami Hurricanes +4.5.
