The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles and Bellarmine Knights face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown in the ASUN Conference Tournament at Freedom Hall. When these two teams faced off on January 29th it was Bellarmine that won 74-63.
CJ Fleming paced Bellarmine with 23 points. Tavian Dunn-Martin was the top player for FGCU putting up 24 points.
Florida Gulf Coast comes into this game with a 21-10 record overall and they have gone 14-14-1 against the spread. In the first game of the tournament they faced off with North Alabama and they cruised to the 81-72 victory. Florida Gulf Coast is averaging 77.7 points while their defense is giving up 72.9 points per game. Tavian Dunn-Martin is the star of this team averaging 20.9 points while shooting 40 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is Bellarmine who sit with a 17-13 record and they have gone 12-12-2 against the spread. It’s been a nice season for Bellarmine but they have lost two of their last three games. Against Eastern Kentucky, the offense could only manage 58 points which led to the 14 point loss. Bellarmine is averaging 70.1 points while their defense is giving up 67.6 points per game. The best player this season has been Dylan Penn who is averaging 16.3 points while shooting 49.5 percent from the field and 21.4 percent from behind the three point line.
Bellarmine is 0-5 against the spread in their last five home games. The over is 6-1 in Florida Gulf Coast’s last seven games overall. The over is 4-1 in Bellarmine’s last five home games. The over is 4-1 Bellarmine’s last five road games against a team with a home winning percentage greater than .600.
I don’t like the way Bellarmine has looked heading into this game, and they are going to struggle to slow down Florida Gulf Coast’s offense. With a faster pace, Bellarmine is going to have issues keeping up, and the Eagles will cover the spread.
