Online sports betting is not yet active in Florida. This page will be updated with the latest promos, news and odds once Florida sportsbooks launch.
There are places in Florida that are known to cheer when the Hurricanes come rolling in and start throwing and rolling across the field. Those folks are University of Miami fans, and when their football team hits the gridiron, it is always going to be a Hurricane party in the Sunshine State.
College football fans across the country know Miami as a force to be reckoned with. Since the year 2000, they have had just four losing records while going to 17 bowl games in the same stretch.
If you’re a college football fan, the legalization of sports betting in Florida will open the door to more activities involving the game that you love. From anywhere in the state, including your own living room, you will soon be able to make wagers on how the Miami Hurricanes are going to fare week in, week out and throughout the year.
Below we’ve put together a short guide on betting on the Miami Hurricanes football team, so read on for more information.
Betting on the Miami Hurricanes and other NCAA football teams in FL will be easy thanks to online sportsbooks. As long as you’re 21 or older, within Florida state lines and connected to the internet, you can make wagers.
The first step after signing up for an account at the sportsbook of your choice is to create a betting strategy. One of the most important aspects of that is going to be research, and that starts with knowing the sports lines and odds.
Below you’ll find a live odds feed with up-to-date odds for Miami Hurricanes football, including for point spread, moneyline and over/under bets. If you see odds that you are interested in wagering on, you can simply click on them and that’ll take you to the corresponding sportsbook.
The Miami Hurricanes football team hasn’t claimed the NCAA national title since 2001, but it’s been ranked as high as No. 2 in the AP Poll as recently as 2017.
If you think the Hurricanes have a chance to take home the NCAA title once again, then you’re going to be interested in taking a look at the odds feed below. It’s customized to show you the national championship odds for the University of Miami. Like above, simply click on any set of odds that catches your eye to go directly to that sportsbook.
If you’re a newcomer to the sports betting hobby, then you might take a gander at a set of betting lines and just scratch your head. We’re here to help you understand what it all means. Here’s a hypothetical example of college football betting lines you might see:
|Miami Hurricanes||+3.5 (-110)||+165||Over 64.5 (-110)|
|Notre Dame||-3.5 (-110)||-170||Under 64.5 (-110)|
First and foremost, we can tell by looking at this line that the Miami Hurricanes will be playing against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. But what else does it tell us?
The first set of numbers, a +3.5 for Miami and a -3.5 for Notre Dame, indicates the point spread in this contest. It’s not a big one, so oddsmakers are expecting this game to be fairly close. In either case, a winning bet would pay out at -110 odds, which is the number in parentheses. Those odds indicate that for every $110 you wager, you have the potential to win $100 in profit. A negative number on the betting spread indicates how many points the favorite has to win by in order for a spread wager on that side to win. If the favorite doesn’t exceed that number, then wagers on the underdog would pay out. So, if the final score was 28-24 in favor of Notre Dame, then wagers on the Fighting Irish would pay out.
The next set of numbers, which is +165 for the Hurricanes and -170 for the Irish, is the moneyline. We can tell that Notre Dame is favored since its moneyline betting odds are negative. Like the above example, a negative number is the amount of money you would need to bet to win $100 in profit. A positive number, on the other hand, indicates an underdog, and for every $100 that you bet on that side, you have the potential to win the odds number in profit. So if you bet $100 on the Hurricanes and they won, your payout would be $265, which is your initial stake returned to you plus the $165 in winnings.
The final set of odds is the total, which the sportsbook set at 64.5 points for this game. For this bet, you don’t care who wins, just what the combined number of points in the final score adds up to. You have to decide if the two teams can combine to score over the sportsbook’s line, or if the defenses will keep them under that total. Both bets in this case carry -110 odds.
The beauty of technology is that in many cases it has made our lives easier. When it comes to sports gambling, that’s no exception.
The first thing you need to do when getting ready to bet on Miami football in Florida is to open an account at the sportsbook of your choice. Not sure which one fits your needs best? You can find reviews on legal Florida sportsbooks on this site, as well as what latest sportsbook bonuses are currently available when you sign up.
Once you’ve made that decision, you can register for a new account at the sportsbook. There, you’ll need to provide some personal information, which is necessary at all sportsbooks in Florida, and you’ll also need to accept the terms and conditions for the site.
Once you finish with that, you can download the sportsbook app to your phone or tablet, which will allow the sportsbook to verify your location anytime you’re going to make a bet. Florida law requires that you be within state lines in order to bet on sports, so there is geolocation software that will verify your location every time you access your account and before you can make a wager.
After that, claim your sportsbook free bets, bonus or promotions, which can set you up for some initial bets. Deposit some funds into your account, and you’ll be ready to make your first wager.
Live betting is a relatively new form of sports betting, and it has been extremely popular. The reason is pretty simple: The level of engagement you get while betting on the games as they happen in real time adds a degree of fun that has garnered a lot of attention.
You can bet on things like which player will score the next touchdown, or if the defense will have an interception on this drive, or if there will be a fourth quarter comeback. Like many proposition bets, the possibilities feel endless at times with what kind of bets you’ll see.
The one thing you have to use in order to bet live? An online sportsbook.
Since the odds are shifting in real time along with the action on the screen, you wouldn’t be able to place bets at a brick-and-mortar sportsbook to keep up with all of the line movement. Sportsbook apps can automatically update the odds right in front of your eyes as you use your device to place your bets.

It wasn’t the worst season to be a Hurricanes fan in 2020, as the team took only a few losses on its way to an 8-3 record. It finished atop the Coastal Division in the ACC and got an invite to the Cheez-It Bowl against Oklahoma State. Unfortunately, that game ended in a loss as the Hurricanes fell in a tightly contested game, 37-34.
Two players were the leaders in the ACC at their respective positions. Jose Borregales led the entire conference in field goal percentage at 90.9%, while Bubba Bolden tied for the top spot in forced fumbles with a total of four on the season.
The Miami Hurricanes are one of the more popular teams in NCAA football, which means they end up getting plenty of broadcast time.
Most of those who are cheering on the Canes aren’t doing so from the local viewing area, which means they have to catch the game in other ways. Thankfully, the options are pretty impressive since the Hurricanes will have games on ABC, ESPN, ESPNU, the ACC Network and more, with those channels available on services like Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV, fuboTV, AT&T TV and Sling TV.
The announcers doing the play calling during broadcasts will vary depending on which channel has the game.
Over the past few seasons, the Miami Hurricanes have had quite a few standout athletes making big plays for them. Here are a few of the stat leaders over the past five seasons:
With a storied history like the Miami Hurricanes college football team has, there are bound to be some impressive all-time leaders. Below are some of the most notable accomplishments for Miami’s program.
Over the past five seasons, the Hurricanes have sent multiple players to the NFL. Below is a list of each draft pick from Miami over those seasons:
|2019||5||20||158||Cowboys||Mike Jackson Sr.||CB|
The Miami Hurricanes’ home field is Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
The Miami Hurricanes have been awarded the national title in college football a total of nine times from NCAA-designated major selectors. However, the team only lays claim to five of those titles.
In 1983, the Canes were coached by Howard Schnellenberger, who led his team to an 11-1 record and a win in the Orange Bowl. His team ended the season ranked No. 1 in both the coaches poll and the AP poll.
In 1987, Jimmy Johnson coached Miami to a perfect 12-0 record with the culmination arriving in the form of an Orange Bowl victory. The Hurricanes ranked No. 1 in both final polls that season.
The 1989 season found the Canes collecting an 11-1 record under the coaching of Dennis Erickson. They finished the year with a victory in the Sugar Bowl and No. 1 rankings in both the AP and coaches polls.
Miami’s only national championship in the 1990s came with a perfect 12-0 record in 1991. The team, coached by Erickson, finished the year with an Orange Bowl victory and ranked No. 1 in the final AP poll, though it was at No. 2 in the final coaches poll that season.
2001 was the year the Hurricanes made their one-and-only Rose Bowl appearance, where they defeated the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the BCS National Championship Game. That team, coached by Larry Coker, finished 12-0 thanks to that 37-14 victory. It was the No. 1 ranked team in both polls at the end of the season.
The Hurricanes’ two biggest rivals just so happen to be the most natural rivals to have. Both the University of Florida Gators and the Florida State Seminoles rank as the No. 1 teams the Hurricanes faithful want to see their team defeat each season.
Overall, the Hurricanes vs the Gators have a 29-26 all-time record, dating all the way back to their first meeting in 1938.
While Miami’s rivalry with Florida State is a bit younger, having started in 1951, it doesn’t take away from the intensity the two teams bring every time they meet. Through those games, Miami has a slight edge in the all-time record, 33-30.
Thinking of betting on a Hurricanes player winning the Heisman Trophy? Check out the odds to win the Heisman Trophy here. Meantime, to date, only two Miami Hurricanes players have claimed the coveted Heisman Trophy, both of whom were quarterbacks.
Vinny Testaverde was the first to gain the honor, in 1986. That season he helped his team to an 11-1 record and a No. 2 ranking in the final AP Poll of the season. He passed for 2,557 yards and 26 touchdowns on 175 completions over 276 attempts.
Testaverde became a bit of an NFL journeyman following college, playing for seven teams over his 21-year career. He appeared in 233 games and won 90 of those. He threw 275 touchdowns to 267 interceptions while picking up 46,233 yards through the air. He retired in 2007 as a member of the Carolina Panthers.
The second Hurricane to win the Heisman was Gino Torretta in 1992. The quarterback led his squad to an 11-1 record and a No. 3 ranking in the country. He completed 228 passes on 402 attempts for 3,060 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Torretta’s NFL career was a bit of a mystery after being selected in the seventh round of the 1993 draft by the Minnesota Vikings. He didn’t play that season, and the Vikings traded him to the Detroit Lions the following year, where he once again did not make an appearance in any games.
In 1995, he played in NFL Europe and made appearances on the rosters of both the Detroit Lions and the San Francisco 49ers. The following year, the Seattle Seahawks picked him up, and he made just one appearance in an NFL game. He threw a 32-yard touchdown pass.
In 1997, he was on the Seahawks’ roster and then the Indianapolis Colts but did not see a snap. Following that season, he retired.
