Queens is 4-12-2 ATS in their last 18 games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss. The over is 4-1-1 in Queens’ last 6 games.
Queens comes into this game after losing five of their last six games, but they did defeat Florida Gulf Coast by a score of 84-82 in their first meeting. Florida Gulf Coast has lost three of their last four games and they are only shooting 43.8% from the field. Queens is a very high scoring team, but they don’t play much defense. The first game between these two teams was high scoring and I think this one will be as well. I like the over in this game.
