Jailyn Ingram is averaging 16.7 points and 6.6 rebounds while Bryan Greenlee is averaging 11.3 points and 2.5 rebounds.

The Panthers are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games. The Owls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 8-2 in Panthers last 10 road games. The over is 5-1 in Owls last 6 overall. The road team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

Both of these teams have been hit or miss lately, but it’s the Florida Atlantic Owls that have shown far more consistency on the offensive side and their ability to fill it up gives them a fighting chance every time they take the court. This is also a rivalry game, and while the road team has had a lot of the success in this series, FAU has to like its chances at home. I’ll take FAU in this near pick em contest.
