There are two NCAA football teams that carry the name Miami. One of them has a much longer history associated with it. If you are guessing that to be the Hurricanes in Miami, Florida, we’re sorry to inform you that you’re wrong. The Miami RedHawks’ football program dates back to 1888 — a full 38 years before the squad down south.

During that time, the RedHawks have forged a name for themselves as a place where notable head coaches cut their teeth. Legends like Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler once paced the sidelines, as did current head NFL coaches Sean Payton, John Harbaugh and Sean McVay.

As a member of the Mid-American Conference, the RedHawks have plenty of competition on their schedule each season. But what are their chances of winning the conference? Making a bowl game? Winning the national championship?

Now that sports betting is coming to Ohio, you may be asking yourself those very questions. You can get in on the action as soon as the first sportsbooks open, and until then you can pregame by prepping as well as you can. That’s where this little guide on the Miami RedHawks and how you can bet on them comes in. Read on for more.

How to read Miami RedHawks betting lines

For the uninitiated, the first foray into sports betting can be a little confusing. Odds, point spreads, totals and so much more information all demand your attention at once. The good news is that the information is fairly easy to break down. Below we outline what you’re going to see when you are about to place a college football wager.

 SpreadMoneylineTotal
Miami RedHawks+7.5 (-110)+150Over 47.5 (-110)
Toledo Rockets-7.5 (-110)-165Under 47.5 (-110)

Even as a newcomer, the first piece of information you’re going to get from looking at this hypothetical example is that the Miami RedHawks will be playing the Toledo Rockets. Below we outline what else you can gather from reading this line, which you might one day see at DraftKings Sportsbook or Caesars.

The first numbers, which are a +7.5 for the RedHawks and a -7.5 for the Rockets, indicate the point spread. Oddsmakers expect that Toledo can win this game by more than a touchdown. With either team, a winning wager would pay out at -110 odds. That means if you wager $110, you’d have a chance to win $100 in profit. The negative number of points associated with the Rockets is the number of points that their margin of victory must exceed for a spread bet on them to pay out. If that doesn’t happen, then bets on the underdog, which is Miami in this example, would win. If the final score ended up being 29-21 in favor of Toledo, then spread bets on the Rockets would pay out.

The next numbers, which are +150 for Miami and -165 for Toledo, are the latest moneyline odds. Toledo has a negative number, which indicates that the Rockets are the favorites to win the game. Because the number is negative, a bet of that amount would win a $100 profit. The positive number for the RedHawks, meanwhile, shows they are the underdog, and a bet of $100 would win you $150 if correct. In that case, you’d get a payout of $250 — your initial wager plus your profit.

The last numbers are for the over/under or total. In this example, the sportsbook has it set at 47.5 points. With a bet on the total, you aren’t concerned about which team is going to win the game. Instead, you can bet on whether the two teams will combine to score more than — or over — that number of predicted points, or under that amount. In this case, you have -110 odds for either side of the wager.

How to bet on RedHawks games in Ohio

There was a time when you had to travel to Las Vegas to bet on sports. That all began to shift once the US Supreme Court ruled that individual states could allow and regulate sports gambling. Since then, the hobby has boomed.

Ohio is just one of the many states that have taken that step to legalization. As that began to develop, so did the launch of online sportsbooks in Ohio.

Signing up for an online account is easy, as well as free. You can do some research on which sportsbook you’re most interested in by reading through the reviews on this site. Once you’ve made your decision, head to the sportsbook site to sign up.

After you’re done registering, you can also download the sportsbook app to your mobile device, claim any welcome bonuses and make your initial deposit. Now you’re ready to place your bets on the Miami RedHawks football team.

Miami RedHawks live betting and prop bets

So, you like to bet on sports and watch the Miami RedHawks play football? Have you considered doing both at the same time?

Live betting is a popular addition to the betting options at reputable online sportsbooks. It allows you to wager on the games while they are taking place, adding a level of interaction that was previously unheard of in sports betting.

The bets are typically prop bets and over/unders, and they include things like how many field goals a team will kick in the first half, if any player will block a punt or field goal, or which team will be leading at the end of the third quarter. FanDuel Sportsbook in Ohio, for example, offers a nice variety of live betting options, so don’t be shy about exploring the available props for RedHawks football games.

Because of how quickly the odds shift, live betting is a product for an online sportsbook or sportsbook app. They can keep up with the frequent line moves and shifts, which means you’re always up-to-the-second on the information and can place a bet should you wish to.

Miami RedHawks statistical leaders

With a program as old as Miami’s, it should come as no surprise that it’s been home to some pretty impressive stats over the decades. Below, we break down some of the main statistical leaders:

  • Passing: When it comes to career passing yards in Miami, the first person you’re probably thinking of is Ben Roethlisberger. You would be right if talking about the single-season record of 4,486 yards that he put together in 2003, or even the single-game record he set in 2002 against Northern Illinois with 525 yards. The career leader, however, is Zac Dysert, who played from 2009-12 and notched 12,013 yards. During his three years as a RedHawk, Roethlisberger finished second on the all-time list with 10,829. Roethlisberger does hold the career and single-season record for passing touchdowns with 84 and 37, respectively. Dysert set the single-game record with six TD passes against Akron in 2012.
  • Rushing: The stats tell quite the story about what a dominant running back Travis Prentice was during his career in Miami, which spanned from 1996-99. During that time, he set the career record with 5,596 yards on the ground (more than 1,200 above the second-place player). He also set the single-season record with 1,787 yards in 1998, as well as the second-most in 1999 with 1,659. Prentice is also the single-game record holder with his 376-yard performance against Akron in 1999. He also holds career and single-season rushing touchdown records with 73 and 25 (1997). The single-game record is four, accomplished 10 different times, with Prentice having done it four of those times.
  • Receiving: A different player holds each of the RedHawks’ career, single-season and single-game receiving records. For career receiving yards, Ryne Robinson had 3,697 yards in his four-year career from 2003 to 2006. Martin Nance set the single-season record in 2003 when he hauled in receptions totaling 1,498 yards. Nick Harwell has the single-game record, along with the second, third and sixth spots on the top-10 list. His first-place performance came in 2011 against Temple when he had 229 receiving yards. For receiving touchdowns, Michael Larkin has the career record with 32 between 2001 and 2004. For a single-season record, Nance hauled in 14 touchdown passes in 2005.
  • Tackles: Leading the way on the defensive side of the ball is Curt McMillan, who played in Miami from 1989 until 1992. During that time, he collected 575 total tackles — 49 more than the next best career number. For a single season, Mac Smith holds the record with 223, which he set in 1970. In that same season, teammate Doug Krause set the single-game record for tackles with 30 against Bowling Green.
  • Sacks: With an impressive career record of 35 sacks, Jon Wauford made his presence felt on the defensive side of the ball from 1988 to 1991. In his junior season in 1990, he set the single-season record with 14 sacks. The single-game record is held by J.T. Jones, who had four against Eastern Michigan in 2015.
  • Interceptions: Ballhawks are great to have in the defensive secondary, and Miami had one in Ron Carpenter from 1990 until 1992. During that span, he snagged 16 interceptions to top the career list. For a single-season record, it’s Dick Adams with seven. He did that twice: once in 1969 and once in 1970.

RedHawks in the NFL draft

Making the move from college to professional football is part of the dream of playing at such a high level of athletics. From 1945 until the 1999 season, Miami had 63 players drafted into the NFL. Since then, the program has produced 12 NFL draft picks. We’ve listed them below.
