The Central Michigan Chippewas and Florida State Seminoles face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at the Donald L Tucker Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Florida State Dominated First Game
Florida State faced off against Kennesaw State in the first game, and they dominated the game. Florida State’s offense scored 94 points, and that was enough to win the game in blowout fashion. In the first half, Florida State scored 49 points, and they never looked back on the way to the victory. Florida State shot 46.6 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from behind the three-point line. Darin Green Jr was the top player for Florida State putting up 18 points three rebounds, and one assist.
Rough Start for Central Michigan
Central Michigan comes into this game with an 0–2 record, and it looks like it could be another long season for the Chippewas. In the last game against Louisiana, Central Michigan scored 64 points, and they ended up losing by 10 points. They were outscored 38-31 in the first half, and they couldn’t back bounce back in the second half. Anthony Pritchard was the top player for Central Michigan, putting up 15 points, five rebounds and four assists. There were three different players that finished with at least 12.
Shane’s Free Pick
I do think Central Michigan can keep this game close enough to cover the spread. Central Michigan is a whole lot better than Kennesaw State and their defense will step up a little bit in this game. Central Michigan might still give up 80 points in this game, but it won’t be much more than that, and that means it’s going to be Central Michigan that is going to cover the spread.
