Against The Spread Pick
These are the top two teams in the Atlantic Sun this season. The Liberty Flames with 19-1, which includes a 5-0 conference. They are currently on a five-game winning streak, which includes a 67-60 home win over Lipscomb on Saturday. They will look to extend their winning streak to six games when they travel to take on North Florida on Thursday. Meanwhile, the North Florida Ospreys are in the 2nd with a record of 11-9, which includes a conference record of 4-1. They bounced back following their first conference loss against New Jersey Tech with a 75-68 road win against Jacksonville. I look for the Flames to come away with the win. However, I look for the Ospreys to win with the six points.
Over Under Pick
Liberty has averaged 61.6 points per game over their five-game winning streak. However, defensively they have played like one of the best in the nation. They have only allowed an average of 46.6 points, which is one of the lowest averages lately. Meanwhile, North Florida is averaging 77.6 points per game over their previous five games. Defensively, they are only allowing 68.4 points per game. With the way both teams have been playing defensively over the last five games, I look for the under 131 points to be the play in this spot.
