College Basketball: Thursday, January 4, 2018 at 7:00 pm (FIU Arena)

The Line: Florida International Golden Panthers +14.5 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds


The MTSU Blue Raiders visit the FIU Golden Panthers in a CUSA college basketball tilt.

The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders have been a strong team in past years and are out to show they are once again a team to be reckoned with. Middle Tennessee State kicked off the conference slate with a 63-60 victory at the UAB Blazers as a one point underdog on Saturday. The Blue Raiders sank a few more shots and were 8-19 from distance to win.

Florida International vs. Middle Tennessee - 1/4/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction


Middle Tennessee State won because of the explosive soring of Nick King who pumped in a game high 30 points and grabbed eight rebounds on 11-16 from the floor. Giddy Potts gave the Blue Raiders 19 points and another eight rebounds on 6-13 accuracy including a 5-9 performance from beyond the arc.

The Florida International Golden Panthers are not supposed to be a challenger in the CUSA and are out to prove the experts wrong. FIU opened league play with a 58-57 decision over the rival Florida Atlantic Owls as a 1.5 point home favorite where both teams sank shots at around 33%.

Trejon Jacob was the top offensive option for the Golden Panthers with 17 points and five pulls on 6-11 from the floor. Florida International received 16 points, four yanks, eight assists and six steals from Brian Beard Jr. on 5-16 shooting and a 5-7 mark at the stripe while Michael Douglas chipped in with nine points and five pulls on 3-6.

Under is 8-3 in MTSU last 11 overall and MTSU are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 Thursday games and MTSU are 36-17 ATS in their last 53 games overall. Over is 9-1 in FIU last 10 home games and over is 10-3 in FIU last 13 vs. Conference USA and FIU are 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 home games. 

I don’t think FIU has a chance but somehow I can’t ignore all the points either…
