FGCU vs. Wichita State Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Florida Gulf Coast vs. Wichita State

Is No. 11 Wichita State going to have any trouble at home when it takes on Florida Gulf Coast tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Wichita State is the favorite in this game, as the Shockers are getting odds of -17 points against Florida Gulf Coast. The over/under total for the contest has yet to be set. Tonight’s game takes place from Charles Koch Arena in Wichita, Kansas and will air live on CBS Sports Network.

Wichita State is coming off an 89-80 win over Arkansas State to improve to 9-2 on the season. However, the Shockers failed to cover a 29-point spread and are just 4-5 against the spread on the season. Wichita State is putting up 86.7 points per game while allowing 71.4 per contest. The Shockers are led by Landry Shamet, who is averaging 16.5 points and 4.5 assists per game while Darral Willis Jr. is adding 12.6 points and 7 rebounds per game.

Florida Gulf Coast has lost two straight and four of its last five, including a 91-88 loss at Florida International this week. The Eagles are 7-6 overall. They have played in just three lined games and are 2-1 against the spread in those three games. FGCU is averaging 80.1 points per game on offense while allowing 75.8 per contest. The Eagles are led by Brandon Goodwin, who is averaging 18.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game. Christian Terrell is adding 14.3 points and 6.1 rebounds per contest.

Bet on FGCU vs. Wichita State

These two have no recent meetings to consider for today’s game. Wichita State has looked a little shaky in recent games and they come into today 1-6 against the spread in their last 7 Friday games. FGCU is 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games following a loss and 18-3-1 ATS in their last 22 games against a team with a win percentage over .600. The public betting is almost unanimous for Wichita State tonight, but I think the Eagles have enough offense to cover this lofty spread.
