The Miami Hurricanes are one of the most intriguing teams moving into 2022. In comes Mario Cristobal, one of the nation’s top recruiters and a lauded alumni and national champion Hurricane. Cristobal symbolizes the most optimistic of the multiple head coaching changes for Miami over the past six years and fans have a right to be excited about their team. Further, the university became serious about spending money on athletics, making Miami a potential wagon in the making. Do odds reflect the excited outlook on Miami?

This page will serve as a one-stop shop for everything you need to know about the Miami Hurricanes for the 2022 season. Where do they stand on college football odds tables and in ACC odds?

Week 1 Odds: Miami vs. Bethune-Cookman

Odds have not yet been released for Miami vs. Bethune–Cookman. In 2019, Miami was a 40-point favorite against this team and they won the game 63-0. This is a true warmup game for the Hurricanes and odds may not become available leading up to Week 1.

Miami odds, 2022 team preview

Cristobal represents a shift in the mindset of Miami– from talented but unserious about winning to a certified future contender. Back is young star-in-the-making Tyler Van Dyke, the Hurricanes’ best shot at a first-round QB talent in decades. Seven starters on the offensive side return, including three of the team’s top four rushers, but Miami must replace their top two receivers. Zion Nelson is an All American candidate at left tackle and shores up an OL that wasn’t in the top half of the conference last season.

Defensively, Miami had problems in 2021. Their defensive secondary this season is the strength of the unit, led by stud safety James Williams. Their defensive line is anchored by rising sophomore and former five-star recruit Leonard Taylor, who tied for the team lead in 7.5 tackles for loss as a freshman last year. Taylor is the surest piece in the front six and the rest have real questions. They were outside the top 50 in rush success rate last year and teams tended to lean into their run game against Miami.

The road to an ACC Coastal title is an uphill one as Miami handles Texas A&M and Clemson on the road this year. Fortunately, they avoid Wake Forest and NC State in cross-division play, but the combo of at Clemson and vs. Pittsburgh to close out the season is a rough stretch.

Whether or not Miami takes a step back into 8+ win territory this year remains to be seen, but this program has a very bright future ahead of it.

Players to watch

  • QB Tyler Van Dyke: TVD is a superstar in the making. He finished out 2021 with six straight 300+ yard, three-touchdown games, a program record. He tops the returning ACC QBs in yards per attempt and passer rating, but has to find new receivers to throw to (his top two from 2021 are gone). Van Dyke is already drawing first-round NFL Draft hype despite not being eligible for another season.
  • OT Zion Nelson: Nelson is the top All-American candidate on the roster and is one of the top returning offensive tackles in the entire nation. Phil Steele named him a preseason fourth team All-American. Nelson has been a Day 1 starter since he was a true freshman and will provide excellent security to TVD this season.
  • SAF James Williams: Williams is a versatile player. He has the athleticism and ball skills of a defensive back but also stands 6′ 5″ and 224 pounds. Expect him to play everything from deep safety to box linebacker and contend for an all conference bid this season. Last year as a true freshman, Williams nabbed two interceptions and recorded 31 tackles in seven starts before getting hurt.

Miami Hurricanes futures odds

College football futures odds will continue to shift as the season progresses. Because of the length of college football schedules, futures odds may shift dramatically week-to-week.

Miami win total

A string of disappointing seasons isn’t enough to put a cap on the most promising Miami team in some years. Oddsmakers pen Miami for over wins this season. It’s a lofty goal for a team that plays Clemson and Texas A&M on the road.

Odds to win 2023 National Championship

Expectations for Miami and the National Championship remain reasonable; their odds are – second-best in the ACC. Of course, the Hurricanes have to go through Clemson to lock in a CFP spot. However, if Miami has the chops to beat both A&M and Clemson, they certainly would have the resume, something not every ACC team can say.

Odds to win ACC Championship

Depending on the book you look at, Miami has the second- or third-best odds to win the ACC (). Not having to deal with Clemson or NC State in their division props up their number by default.
