This article is part of our College Football DFS: Night Slate series.
DraftKings' night slate and FanDuel's After Hours offering differ slightly, and we'll focus on the three games they have in common. I'll give a nod to the unique games independent of my primary recommendations.
Louisiana Tech @ Southern Miss (-5.5) O/U: 58.5
Miami @ Louisville (-2.5) O/U: 64.5

Micale Cunningham, Louisville (DK $7,700, FD $9,900) vs. Miami
Cunningham is a no-braainer QB pick for this slate.

Hartman was squelched by the Clemson defense last week, so I wouldn't use his performance last week as a reliable metric. Jamie Newman left the program for a reason - aside from the
