THE PUBLIC LIKES: As of Thursday morning, 59% of bets are on the Panthers to cover the spread as an underdog and 61% of the money is also on Florida International.

INJURY REPORT: The Golden Panthers will be without receiver Thomas Owens, who has a knee injury and is doubtful to play tonight. On the other side, receiver Ventell Bryant (leg) and quarterback Logan Marchi (lower body) are questionable.

They're also 4-1 against the number in their last five games overall, are 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games versus an opponent with a winning record, and have covered the number in their last 26 games coming off an ATS win.

On the other side, the Golden Panthers are just 1-3-1 at the betting window in their last five games in December, are 2-7 against the spread in their last nine non-conference games, and are 0-4-1 against the number in their last five neutral site games.
