The Roadrunners are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss and 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. The Golden Panthers are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
FIU is actually not a bad basketball team, especially on the defensive end. The Golden Panthers have also done a great job of covering the number on their home court. I like Florida Ineternational to get another big victory.
