Florida State Seminoles
The Seminoles march into this Monday night pairing sporting a 6-0 record that gives their 2017 season plenty of promise. Coming off a season that saw the program finish 16th in the AP ratings, the Seminoles have high hopes of cracking the Top-25 once again. A win against No. 6 Florida this evening would go a long way for the Seminoles, but by the looks of it the best Vegas sportsbook odds aren’t giving FSU much of a shot tonight. The Seminoles are undefeated this season but there’s no question that Florida State hasn’t faced anyone the likes of the Gators. FSU last stepped onto the court to face the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in a 78-73 winning effort.
To help pull off the upset and keep the undefeated streak going, the Seminoles will turn to Terance Mann this evening. Mann currently leads FSU in points with his average of 15.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per matchup. Second in points for the Seminoles is Phil Cofer, who is coughing up 14.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 0.7 assists each time he takes to the floor.
The Gators crawl into this evening’s contest with a nearly unblemished 5-1 record that proves this team is one of the best in the nation. Florida recently suffered their 1st loss of the season 84-87 against the Duke Blue Devils. Gators’ fans know it would’ve been nice to see Florida get the job done against No, 1 Duke, but conceding a loss to the best program in the nation is nothing to get disgruntled about. Instead, the fact that Florida only lost by 3 proves that this program can compete with the best, something the Gators will be looking to prove once again this evening.
The best Vegas sportsbook lines are pegging Florida as a heavy 10-point favorite on the spread, which seems like a great option considering how dominant the Gators have been against unranked opponents all season long. Considering that the last team they faced was ranked No. 1 in the nation, Florida welcomes a matchup against a non-ranked opponent.
NCAAB betting players should keep an eye out for Jalen Hudson and Egor Koulechov this evening. Hudson leads the program in points as he’s averaging 21.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game. Koulechov helps Hudson out the most as the Russian is throwing down 17.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per outing.
