The Milwaukee Panthers and FIU Panthers meet Tuesday in college basketball action at the Ocean Bank Convocation Center.

The Milwaukee Panthers look for a bounce back victory after losing their first two games of the season. The Milwaukee Panthers are averaging 56.5 points on 30.3 percent shooting and allowing 68 points on 40.4 percent shooting. Darius Roy is averaging 16.5 points and six assists while DeAndre Abram is averaging 10.5 points and 10 rebounds. Carson Warren-Newsome is dishing 0.5 assists and Vance Johnson is grabbing five rebounds. The Milwaukee Panthers are shooting 30.2 percent from beyond the arc and 73.9 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Panthers are allowing 26.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 39 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Panthers have lost four of their last six road games.

The FIU Panthers look for another victory to improve to 3-0 on the season. The FIU Panthers are averaging 113.5 points on 52.1 percent shooting and allowing 65.5 points on 31.1 percent shooting. Devon Andrews is averaging 21.5 points and 3.5 rebounds while Brian Beard Jr. is averaging 17 points and eight assists. Isaiah Banks is the third double-digit scorer and Antonio Daye Jr. is grabbing 6.5 rebounds. The FIU Panthers are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 50.7 percent from the free throw line. The FIU Panthers are allowing 32.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 51.5 rebounds per game. The FIU Panthers have won seven straight home games.

The Panthers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Golden Panthers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Horizon League and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 6-2-2 in Golden Panthers last 10 home games and the under is 5-1 in Panthers last 6 overall.

The Milwaukee Panthers can't get much going on the offensive end to start the season, as they're one of the worst scoring and shooting teams currently. The Florida International Golden Panthers didn't play anybody in their first two games, but they've been impressive at home dating back to last season and have multiple players who can step up offensively. FIU and the reasonable chalk is a solid play, especially with how the Milwaukee Panthers have started the season.

Pick:
Florida International Golden Panthers -5
