record is bad:  2-5 posted ATS in tourney but on a 2 game winning streak (Illinois over Colorado and FGCU over SDSU).

i know a lot of momentum will be lost the next 4-5 days but 12 full points?  Florida wins but FGCU easily covers.......

FGCU  +12  (max wager of 4.4 units to win 4)

Tough line. A week ago you would have taken Florida -20 in this game. Does those 2 games change that?

well i actually knew that FGCU beat Miami early in the year and was extremely competitive at Iowa St and at Duke,

this FGCU is so athletic they are not a typical 15 seed which is why they are the first 15th seed ever to make a sweet 16,

they should have been seeded about 8 maybe 9, not 16,

the 12 points is a max bet for me because this team is very, very ,very good

This is college basketball.  A game of emotion and momentum.

How can you say they were extremely competitive at duke when they were down 23 at half and lost by 22?

In college bball ill take the team with more talent and the better COach. These guys aren't going to out athlete Florida. Overall I probably would stay away from this line.

Florida has a tendency to play below their potential, Florida Gulf Coast does that opposite.  Playing at or above potential is what wins games.  I think Florida Gulf Coast can hang tough and potentially win.

"Duke rattles off 30 unanswered points in romp of Florida Gulf Coast"



Gulf Coast was up 30-29 with 5 minutes to play in the first half.
Duke went on a 30 to 0 run to go up 60 -29


FYI



I like gulf coast also


Gulf coast > Gold coast

I'm thinkin this game is gonna be somewhat close, but FGCU pulls away and gets the win.  Florida can only win blow out games, but they are terrible in close games.  And Gulf Coast doesn't get blown out now days.  Yeah they got blown out at Duke, but who doesn't?

Freakin Ole Miss beat Florida, lol.  Like please.  Florida is no world beater.

What happened at duke doesn't matter. I mean UNC has gotten blown out at duke. FGCU is clearly a different team now. Im not sayint they will win but I doubt they get hammered

Absolutely right Osirus. They have lost to worse teams than Duke this year but none of that matters now. It's all about getting on a roll and stepping up in big games.

i have been doing this for 32 years.  you have good runs and bad runs.

one year, in college football, i won 22 of my first 27 wagers.

that's 22-5 for the mathematically challenged.

i barely lost 2 of my first 5 picks this tourney.  michigan state covered by half a point to beat me.  michigan covered by 4 pts.

then i won ILLINOIS over colorado.  then i won FGCU over SDSU.

no i think i'll win FGCU + against florida.

the line is now 13.

this is a JOKE.

the line should be around 9.

it is rare that a NCAA tourney line is 4 points off.

i don't care if it loses,

FGCU is ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY UNEQUIVOCALLY THE CORRECT PLAY AND A MUST PLAY

Fgcu beat two teams that you can say they matched up well against, a Georgetown team that isn't athletic and can't score and a sd state team that was a mediocre team all year hence the seven seed. I didn't bring up duke the original poster said they were competitive with them when in fact they weren't. Are we supposed to discount the 30-0 run like it didn't happen? This is a step up in class against a Florida team that can score with anyone in the country, is more athletic than the previous 2 opponents and has the size to outmatch them as well. Where is gulf coasts advantage? Again I would stay away from this game either way but if the line was 9 like another poster suggested it should be I'd have a play on Florida. This team didn't even win its conference regular season. Not to mention you're giving Donovan, one of the best coaches in the country and whole week to watch tape and game plan. There's no way Florida has a let down. It's the sweet 16 after all.
