The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles and the Liberty Flames meet in college basketball action from the Liberty Arena on Saturday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Liberty is listed as a 12.5-point home favorite with a -900 ML price. The total for this game is set at 130.5 points.
Florida Gulf Coast hasn’t had any new names pop up on the injury report while Liberty has Isiah Warfield questionable for this game with a concussion and Zach Cleveland is questionable for this game with an illness.
Florida Gulf Coast’s 82-72 OT win back on February 23rd, 2022 was their first win over Liberty all-time.
Florida Gulf Coast is 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss. Liberty is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 11-1 ATS in their last 12 home games while the under is 9-1-1 in their last 11 games overall.
I’m sticking with Liberty here. The Flames have been one of the best in the ASUN this season, and while I do like what FGCU brings to the table here, I just can’t help but notice a lot of the struggles they’ve had on the road this season, including conference play and those issues aren’t ones you want going on the road to take on Liberty, who are outscoring teams by 18.4 PPG in their last 5 games. I’ll lay it and play it with Liberty here.
