This can definitely be the most interesting and popular game of the tournament in this year’s Sweet 16. The battle of Florida comes down to the University of Florida and Florida Gulf Coast University. Check out NCAA Tournament odds at Top Bet sportsbook.
Florida (28-7) has gotten pretty lucky in the tournament in order to face FGCU instead of Georgetown, if the seeds would have worked out. But, this is March, and the seeds never work out. Florida was always the best team in the SEC this season, winning the regular season championship and then losing in the championship of the conference tournament. The Gators never really had trouble in the NCAA Tournament thus far, defeating Northwestern State by a whole bunch of points and then Minnesota by 14.
Dunk City is not Fort Myers, Florida. Florida Gulf Coast (26-10) is definitely the talk of the tournament this season, as the Eagles are the first ever 15-seed to make the Sweet 16. These guys are easily America’s favorite team right now because of this remarkable run. The team plays totally free, without any nervousness and they just go out and have fun, and dunk. A lot. FGCU pulled the huge upset over Georgetown in the Round of 64, 78-68, and then followed that up with a win over San Diego State in the Round of 32.
Florida is 18-14 against the spread this season and has covered the spread in both games this tournament. FGCU is an impressive 6-0 ATS this year and has obviously covered in both games in the tournament.
I really want to pick FGCU in this one but I think Florida is just too good and this is when the Gators believe enough is enough and take care of business. Against the spread is another thing so take the +13 with the Eagles and to do so Click Here.
