Eagles vs. Seminoles Prediction
The Winthrop Eagles have never shied away from a challenge in their program's history and they will have another one today as they travel to play the ninth-ranked Florida State Seminoles. Can Winthrop at least stay within the number to cover the spread today?

Eagles ease past Prairie View A&M
Winthrop improved to 8-4 on the season Saturday with its fourth win in a row, a 76-62 home triumph over the Panthers. The Eagles outscored the visitors 44-28 in the second half to secure the win. Bjorn Broman paced Winthrop with 17 points on 4-of-7 shooting including 2-of-4 on 3-point attempts and 7-of-7 at the free throw line. He also pulled down three rebounds. Adam Pickett tallied 15 points, two rebounds and two assists off the bench. Kyle Zunic added 12 points, nine caroms and three dimes. The Eagles shot 24-of-42 from the floor, 9-of-19 on 3-point attempts and 19-of-23 at the free throw line.
Seminoles win sixth in a row
Florida State cruised to an 81-59 win over Saint Louis Saturday in the Orange Bowl Classic to improve to 11-1 on the season. The Seminoles established a 40-25 halftime advantage en route to the victory. David Nichols paced FSU with 19 points off the bench on 7-of-11 shooting including 4-of-7 from 3-point distance plus 1-of-1 at the free throw line. He also pulled down two rebounds. Terance Mann registered 17 points, seven boards and two assists. Trent Forrest added 10 points along with five caroms, five assists and three steals.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games. Winthrop is 5-12 ATS in its last 17 road games versus a team with a winning home record.
The Seminoles are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 Tuesday games. Florida State is 1-5-1 ATS in its last seven home games.
Florida State has occasionally failed to dominate inferior opponents at home and that could be the case again today, especially with a huge road showdown at undefeated Virginia on deck. I'd imagine the spread will be somewhere in the 18 or 19-point range. Keep an eye out for when it's released. If it is at 17 points or more, I'm on Winthrop.
