FGCU Could Be Worth A Look Against Florida State

The transformation of Florida Gulf Coast from a fun, Cinderella in 2013 to an authentic mid-major threat is complete. However, the Eagles still get overlooked from time to time and bettors should keep note, as FGCU is 7-0-1 ATS when dogs of 12 or more points. FGCU opened as 12-point underdogs for their in-state Round of 64 game against the with Florida State Seminoles.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in FSU’s last 5 games.
  • FSU is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games as a favorite of 12.0 or more.
  • Florida Gulf Coast is 0-5 SU in their last 5 games against the ACC.

The Eagles offense has primarily run through the guard tandem of Brandon Goodwin and Zach Johnson this season with the duo sitting first and second on the team in points and assists. However, forward Marc-Eddy Norelia has been playing the best basketball of his injury-riddled season with the senior averaging 12 points and 11 rebounds in the past three.

Florida State is a team chalk full of athletic, talented players who can run almost any team out of the gym when they are on. Dwayne Bacon is a prolific, volume-based shooter who leads the team in points while Jonathan Isaac is starting to figure out how to properly utilize his size while being a team-first player. The issue is just how bad FSU can be when they are off. The Seminoles have losses to Temple, Georgia Tech and Pitt, who finished with a combined .500 record on the year.
