Florida International Panthers (1-1 SU, 0-0 ATS, 0-0 O/U) vs. Elon Phoenix (1-2 SU, 0-2 ATS, 1-1 O/U) NCAAB: Friday, November 17, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. EST The Line: Elon -14 Total: 140.5

The Florida International Panthers take on the Elon Phoenix in a non-conference game in the Black and Gold Shootout. After cruising to an easy win in their opener FIU lost their last game and they are at .500 early in the season The Panthers look to get past last season, which was a one to forget for them going 7-24.

Elon is 1-2 on the young season and they opened the season facing Duke then won and lost their last game. They are the big betting favorite in this game and their only win of the season came against William Peace, who are a Division III school. The Phoenix faced the Panthers last season and beat them 84-81 in OT.

Coming up short in overtime

In their last game Florida International lost to Stetson 70-64 in OT where they forced the extra period hitting a 3-pointer with six seconds left, but were outscored 14-8 in OT. While the Panthers had a bad shooting game with a FG% of only 36.8% and they had 16 turnovers they played pretty good defense holding Stetson to 37.9% shooting. Eric Lockett led FIU with 19 points on 6/10 shooting and had eight boards and Trejon Jacob went for 15 points and had nine boards. Three players and one reserve scored in double figures for Florida International. Jacob and Lockett are the two leading scorers for the Panthers each averaging over 14 ppg and the next leading scorer is Josh Stamps, who is only averaging 7.5 ppg, so the Phoenix need to key on the top scorers and not let them have good shooting games.

Not good in the 2nd stanza

Elon suffered their 2nd loss of the season in their last game falling to Furman 76-67 where they did not play well in the 2nd half being outscored by 12 points after having a 3-point lead at the half. While the Phoenix had a better overall F% (44.5% to 38.5%) they only shot 20.8% from behind the 3-pt arc and they had 16 turnovers while forcing 11. Tyler Seibring was the leading scorer for Elon with 15 points and Brian Dawkins went for 12 points and had seven rebounds. Seibring (13.7 ppg) and Dmitri Thompson (10 ppg) are the only players for the Phoneix that are averaging in double figures, but two others are averaging over nine ppg and Thomson and Dawklins are each averaging over six boards per game. The Phoenix have a deeper team than the Panthers and eight players are averaging at least 5.7 ppg.

Trends

The Florida International Panthers are:

  • 1-4 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games
  • 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record

The Elon Phoenix are:

  • 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss
  • 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Friday games

Elon are the better team and they played a tougher schedule, obviously already facing top-ranked Duke. They are not a team that will light up the scoreboard and because of that they will not cover. The Phoenix will win pretty handily, but it will not be a major blowout and FIU will cover the spread getting 14 points.

PICK: Florida International +14

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
