The Liberty Flames and FIU Panthers face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at FIU Arena. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Liberty vs FIU prediction.

Liberty Has Fallen Apart

Liberty has fallen apart during conference play and straight up on the road they are 2-6. In the last game against Sam Houston State, Liberty scored 73 points, but the defnese gave up 83 points and that led to the 10 point defeat. At halftime, they were down 50-27 and in the second half they couldn’t bounce back on the way to the defeat. Liberty on the season is averaging 75.3 points while their defense is giving up 64.7 points per game. Kyle Rode is averaging 13.4 points while shooting 39 percent from the field and 37.5 percent from behind the three point line. 

FIU Has Lost three Straight

FIU is really struggling heading into this game and they have lost three straight games. In the last game against Louisiana Tech, FIU scored 68 points, but the defense gave up 75 points and they ended up losing. Arturo Dean had a strong game putting up 19 points, 12 rebounds, and three assists. FIU is averaging 73.5 points while their defense is giving up 76.5 points per game. The offense is ranked 194th in the league. Arturo Dean is averaging 12.6 points while shooting 41 percent from the field.

Liberty vs FIU Betting Prediction 

The good news for these teams is at least one team has to come away with a victory. FIU has had some struggles heading into this game, but with the way Liberty plays on the road, I just don’t have any faith in them. Liberty’s defense in the last game gave up 83 points and their defense is going to really struggle here. FIU is going to run up the score here, and the Panthers will get the job done. Back FIU against the spread.
