College Football Predictions Week 14 Analysis: Both of these teams are as erratic as a 2007 Brittney Spears but Miami’s team speed will be the deciding difference. Pittsburgh’s mediocre defense will be blown away by Miami speedsters RB Duke Johnson (4.30 40-speed) and WR Phillip Dorsett (4.30). Miami freshman QB Brad Kayaa has a strong enough arm to stretch the field with downfield bombs against a Pitt pass-defense that ranks 64th. The Panthers one-dimensional offense features bruising 250 Lb. RB James Connor who is listed as questionable (50% chance of playing) with a hip injury. If Connor is cleared to play, expect some train wreck collisions in the hole courtesy of Miami All-American MLB Denzel Perryman (450 Lb. bench-press). If Connor is a scratch the Panthers run-first offense will turn to solid backup Chris Johnson who went for 119 yards on 19 carries a week ago. Miami vs Pittsburgh Betting Odds Total is at 56.0 points
Some of the worst performances are followed by some of the best and we expect Miami to finally recover from their Florida State hangover and get a win at home where they are 5-1. An x-factor could be Miami’s special teams with return men capable of flying past Pitt defenders. Laying -10 on a Jekyll-n-Hyde Hurricanes team is a dicey proposition and we expect Pittsburgh to turn in an inspired performance. The Hurricanes are in the college football postseason while the Panthers are desperately fighting for a spot of their own. Expect Miami to come away with a close win in a hard fought ACC battle.
