This is a very even match up when you look at rankings and how they played down the stretch. The Phoenix are a gritty team though compared to the flashy Golden Panthers. They have gone through wars in their conference and should have them battle tested to squeak out what should be a fast paced game.
Only one of Wisc. Green Bay games have gone over 179 points in last 5 games and none of FIU's games have gone over 179 points. Statistically 2 bad defenses and 2 of the best offenses, but 179 points is crazy high. I don't see both teams scoring in the 90's.
Yes I am aware that these 2 teams can light up a scoreboard. But I've always been a fan of looking into unders in tournament games because this is when both coaches are stressing DEFENSE. Vegas knows a lot of ppl don't look at these smaller schools so I think they handing out a present here. Under 177.
Yes, Green Bay scored 102 point in their last game, but dont think FIU isnt aware of that. So, I can imagine FIUs coaches are preaching Defense before this game. Another trusty source I use for computer simulations is through SCACChoops.com, their computer predicts a score of Green Bay- 85 & FIU- 73. Which totals to 158 (Well below the 179 mark). Dont be a sheep and follow the Public, be smart and take the under.
