FIU is 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games overall and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall.
I’m backing the Panthers in this one. I’m not rushing to the window to bet this thing, but FIU has had the ATS success in the past against LA Tech, including covering in both meetings and earning a split in the two meetings this season as well. Not much else I can go on here, as both are fairly similar statistically, so I’ll take the free bucket with FIU here.
