Florida is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Sunday games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games. The over is 5-1 in Florida’s last 6 games. Xavier is 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 home games. The over is 5-1 in Xavier’s last 6 home games.

Both of these teams had hopes of making the NCAA Tournament this season but were unable to finish the season strong enough. Both teams played very close games in the first round of the NIT, but Florida played the tougher opponent. I am taking the points with Florida and wouldn’t be shocked if they won outright.
