Middle Tennessee State has been living up to their preseason billing and then some standing a strong 15-3 overall and 5-0 in conference. MTSU did the CUSA proud in the NCAA tournament last year and the Blue Raiders return the bulk of talent to a team that’s looking to get back to the Big Dance. MTSU plays off of their strong defense as the Blue Raiders stand 47th in the nation in points allowed compared to 162nd in scoring average. Middle Tennessee State has looked very impressive through conference play thus far and in their last outing the Blue Raiders came through at home beating Western Kentucky by a final of 91-76. MTSU is led by Williams, Potts, and Upshaw who’re each averaging over 15 points per game.

We weren’t high on this FIU squad coming into conference play and the Golden Panthers have stumbled out of the gate now standing just 4-14 overall and 0-5 in league play. Florida International hasn’t been great on either side of the ball ranking 264th in the nation in scoring average and 184th in total defense, and this group will have a tough time scoring consistently today against this solid MTSU defensive unit. FIU has been a bit more respectable as of late coming off back to back razor thin defeats on the road against UTEP and UTSA. The Golden Panthers have been led by Donte McGill who’s averaging 18.8 points per contest.

MTSU is looking to make a run at the CUSA regular season title and to do that the Blue Raiders need to take care of business on the road against the weaker teams in the league. FIU hasn’t been great at home thus far in conference play and we like the veteran Blue Raiders to come through in this one as MTSU goes on to win and cover the spread.
