Hurricanes betting lines explained

The first time you take a look at betting lines at a sportsbook may cause you to question just what the heck you are reading. To help explain things, here’s a basic example of the listings you may find at top sportsbooks, such as DK Sportsbook, FD Sportsbook, and BetMGM Sportsbook:

Point SpreadMoneylineTotals
Miami Hurricanes-5.5 (-110)-175Over 167.5 (-110)
UCF Knights+5.5 (-110)+165Under 167.5 (-110)

We’ll start with the first set of numbers, which is a -5.5 (-110) for Miami and a +5.5 (-110) for the Knights. What you’re looking at is the point spread, as well as the odds associated with a bet on either side.

How does spread betting work? For the point spread, oddsmakers try to determine how much they believe the favorite in a game will win. In this case, they think it will be around 5.5 points. Miami has to win by more than that amount for a point spread bet on the Hurricanes to win, while UCF needs to either win the game outright or lose by fewer than 5.5 points for wagers on that side to pay out.

In either case, the odds are -110, which means that a bet of $110 would win a profit of $100 if successful. You don’t have to bet exactly that amount, however; whatever amount you wager will decide how much you potentially win based on that ratio.

The second set of numbers — -175 for the Hurricanes and +165 for the Knights — shows the moneyline odds. A negative number indicates that the sportsbook believes that the team is the favorite to win, while a positive number indicates the underdog. The farther apart those numbers are, the more dominant the oddsmakers expect the favorite to be.

For our example above, to win a profit of $100 on a Miami bet, you’d have to wager $175. On the other hand, a bet of $100 on UCF would pay out a total of $265 — your $100 wager returned to you plus $165 in profit.

The final set of numbers, O 167.5 (-110) and U 167.5 (-110), are for the total. For this bet, you don’t have to worry about which team will win, just the total combined score of the game.

For a total bet, the sportsbook sets a number; in this case, it’s 167.5. You can wager if you think the actual combined score of the game will be over or under that line. In either case, the odds would be -110, the same as for the point spread.

Miami Hurricanes basketball live odds & prop betting

Live betting, or in-game betting, gives you a chance to be more engaged with the sports you’re wagering on than used to be possible. The concept has proven very popular with bettors across the country and shows no signs of slowing down as sports betting grows.

Live betting allows you to make wagers on a game while the action unfolds on the court. The betting options are usually mostly prop-related and can range from who will score the next basket to if there will be a technical foul in the quarter to so much more. Like any prop betting, this can offer a huge variety of bets for you to choose from.

The odds and lines for live betting will change to reflect what’s happening on the court. This happens quickly, so the best way to keep up is a sportsbook app. Additionally, the app will allow you to place college basketball bets from wherever you are watching the game.

How to watch University of Miami basketball games

The good news is that a lot of their games are available locally on CBS, NBC, FOX, or ABC affiliates, and you can typically get those channels simply with the use of an HD television antenna.

If you want to get the majority of the games, you can also use a service that provides the ACC Network, which is the official network of the Atlantic Coast Conference. This is also where you can watch your FSU games if Florida St. basketball odds are more your thing. This is normally available on most cable services, as well as streaming on Sling, fuboTV, YouTube TV, Hulu Live, and AT&T Now.

All-time Miami basketball stat leaders

While the Hurricanes may not have the most storied history in NCAA basketball, they still have had their share of quality players over the decades. Below are the statistical leaders in scoring, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks at the school:

  • Scoring: One name is pretty consistent regarding being a scoring leader at the University of Miami, and that is Rick Barry. From 1962-1965, Barry scored 2,298 points for the Hurricanes to become the career leader for the school. He also owns the most points for a season with 973 in 1964-65 (and the second-most at 870 in 1963-64) and has the top eight spots for most points in a single game, ranging from 50 up to 59.
  • Rebounds: As if Barry didn’t do enough when it came to putting buckets up for his team, he also is the leader for career, season and single-game rebounds. Throughout his career, he pulled down 1,274 boards, including 475 in 1964-65 and 448 in 1963-64 to hold the top two spots for a season. Barry also has the most rebounds in a single game for Miami, hauling in 29 against Oklahoma City in 1965.
  • Assists: If you thought we were going to say Rick Barry holds these records too, you’re going to be disappointed. Instead, it is Vernon Jennings (1996-2000) who owns the all-time career record and the single-season record for most assists. In his career, he dished out 520 assists, including 218 in 1999-2000. In a single game, however, it is Michael Gardner who holds the top spot with 14, which he did against Pittsburgh during the 1992-93 season.
  • Steals: It takes quick hands and fast reflexes to get a steal in college basketball, and the Miami Hurricanes were lucky enough to have Kevin Norris (1994-1998) to lead the way for them in the career statistical category. Norris picked up 208 steals in his career, which is the only time a Hurricanes player broke the 200 mark. For a single season and single game, however, it is Jerome Scott who holds both records. Scott’s single-season mark is 77 (1991-92), and he is also fourth on that list with 70 (1990-91). His single-game record is nine, which he set against FIU during the 1990-91 season.
  • Blocks: Blocks can change the flow of a game and shift momentum in a hurry, which is one of the reasons they are so coveted by teams across the country. For the Miami Hurricanes, the career record is 263 by Constantin Popa (1991-1995). However, it is Anthony King who holds the top spot in both the single-season and single-game categories, picking up 86 in the 2004-05 season and setting the game record at 13 that same year against Florida Atlantic.

How many national titles have the Hurricanes won?

The University of Miami Hurricanes men’s basketball team does not currently have any national championship banners hanging at the school. The closest the team has come in the NCAA Tournament has been the Elite Eight, which they did in the 2021-22 season. They have also been to the Sweet Sixteen, which it has accomplished four times — in 2000, 2013, 2016 and 2022.

The team has earned a bid to March Madness in the following seasons: 1960, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2008, 2013, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2021. (Bet on March Madness here).

The team, however, did once make the final game in the National Invitation Tournament — more commonly known as the NIT.
