Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders vs Florida International Panthers Predictions 2/17/2022

 

FIU defeated Marshall 72-71 on the road on Thursday night, thanks to 20 points from sophomore guard Tevin Brewer. Clevon Brown contributed 15 points and seven rebounds for the Panthers, who led by as much as ten points before securing the victory.

 

After going 2-2 in four matches this month, Jeremy Ballard’s team is placed No. 241 in the latest KenPom rankings heading into the weekend. The Panthers have a season scoring average of 98.3 points per 100 possessions, which ranks them 260th in the NCAA.

 

FIU’s defense yielded 104.7 points per 100 possessions this season, which ranks 217th in the NCAA, but that figure rose to 110.2 points per 100 possessions against C-USA opponents, which ranks 12th in the league.

 

FIU’s failure to keep teams off the glass is a big factor in the surge. During conference play, the Panthers yielded a 31.2 percent offensive rebounding percentage, which is the worst in C-USA.

 

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Florida International’s last 7 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Florida International’s last 8 matches at home.
  • The Panthers are 4-16 SU in their last 20 matches in the Conference USA Conference.

Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders vs Florida International Panthers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders.

 

FIU is one of the conference’s weakest defensive teams. They give up an absurd quantity of offensive rebounds and have a high turnover rate on offense, making it difficult for them to remain in games. This does not bode well for their chances against a Blue Raiders squad that thrives at converting defense into attack.

 

Middle Tennessee has the best defensive turnover rate in the conference and the fourth-best offensive rebounding rate, thus the Blue Raiders should easily cover this match on Thursday night. The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders will win to a predicted score of 69-65.
