In about one month, August 24th to be exact, the 2019 college football season begins. The first game matches up two historically strong football schools. The Florida Gators will take on the Miami, FL Hurricanes. The game is being played at a neutral site, Orlando.

Game time is 7:00 PM EST and you can catch it on ESPN. Game tickets are going fast and are now commanding around $200 a pop.

Miami FL is building a team. Last year they went 7-6 straight up and 5-8 against the spread. With a new head coach, it will be hard to tell how good Miami is until they play some actual games. They return some starters on offense including QB N'Kosi Perry.

The total win Over Under for Miami is 8.5 wins. This seems a bit high considering Miami is in a rebuild. But when you see some of the teams they are playing you can see why winning 8 or nine games shouldn't be that big of a problem. Teams on Miami's schedule include: Bethune Cookman, Central Michigan and FIU. They also play Louisville who has been terrible as of late. Check the College Football Betting Lines.

Florida is the preseason number 8 team in the country. They return an excellent offensive and defensive squad. The team went 10-3 straight up and 9-4 against the spread in 2018.

Florida's win total Over Under is 9.5 wins. They too are playing a couple of non-conference cream-puffs: TN-Martin and Towson. But the Gators play in the SEC and will face Auburn, Georgia, LSU as well as Florida State.

The current point spread has Florida -7 points vs Miami FL. The action is about even on this game thus far with 52% of the public is betting the Gators. I would have a hard time not betting the Gators -7 vs a Miami team with lots of question marks.
