The Southern Miss Golden Eagles and FIU Panthers face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at FIU Arena. 

The Southern Miss Golden Eagles come into this game with a 7-14 record overall and they have lost eight games in a row. Each of the last four games, Southern Miss has also failed to cover the spread. In the last game against North Texas, the offense really struggled scoring only 56 points and that led to the defeat. Southern Miss on the season is averaging 62.5 points while their defense is giving up 67.7 points per game. Southern Miss is shooting 42.1 percent from the field and 32.2 percent from behind the three point line. Tyler Stevenson has been the best player for Southern Miss averaging 14.3 points while shooting 50.7 percent from the field. 

On the other side of this matchup is the FIU Panthers who sit with a 9-14 record overall and they have lost four games in a row. Each of the last four games, FIU has also failed to cover the spread. FIU on the season is averaging 71.4 points while their defense is giving up 77.6 points per game. FIU is shooting 43.2 percent from the field and 33.2 percent from behind the three point line. Antonio Daye Jr. has been the best player for FIU and coming into this game he is averaging 17.4 points while shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 30.4 percent from behind the three point line.

The under is 7-3-1 in Southern Miss’s last 11 road games. FIU is 1-10 against the spread in their last 11 games overall. 

These are two teams who are both really struggling coming into this game but there is no chance I am ready to expect Southern Miss to keep this game close on the road. FIU’s offense is going to be strong again in this game, and that will be the difference in this game. Back FIU to come away with a cover of the spread.
