MARCH MADNESS FREE PICK: Take Florida Gulf Coast. According to latest college basketball trends, the Eagles are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games on Friday, 7-0 in their last seven games following an ATS win, and 4-0 ATS in their last four non-conference games. They’re also an impressive 13-3 against the number in their last 16 games overall, 9-0 ATS in their last nine neutral site games, and 8-0 ATS in their last eight games following a straight up win.
The Eagles run-and-gun style will continue against a tough Florida squad.That might be not be enough to win the game outright, but the confidence of FGCU led by guards Brett Comer and Sherwood Brown is sky-high. This is not a fluke team. They beat Miami-Florida in non-conference play so they were another under-seeded 15th seed.
