ESPN's FPI predicts outcome in Duke-Miami game
Miami will be looking for its second consecutive ACC win on Saturday at home against Duke.
According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, the Canes are significant favorites to do so. FPI gives Miami a 75.2% chance to defeat the Blue Devils on Saturday afternoon at Hard Rock Stadium.
This is a must-win game for Miami, who is still holding on to hope of competing in the ACC Coastal division this season. Miami is 1-1 in conference play so far after beating Virginia Tech last weekend.
The Canes are likely to be favored in every ACC game the rest of the way except for at Clemson. They also host Florida State and Pitt later this year in crucial ACC matchups.
For Duke, the Blue Devils need to pick up a couple more wins in order to reach bowl eligibility. They have suffered heart-breaking losses in back-to-back weeks against Georgia Tech and North Carolina.
Duke is 4-3 on the season and is trying to get to a bowl game for the first time since 2018. This is Year 1 under head coach Mike Elko.
Kickoff is at 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
