Jacksonville vs North Florida
North Florida heads to Jacksonville in this one to take on the Dolphins in the first round of the River City Rumble. North Florida has played very well on the road this year covering in 62.5% of there games. Jacksonville, on the other hand, has only covered in 27.3% of there games at home. One of the biggest parts of North Florida’s game has been there ability to shoot the ball from three. Currently, they are shooting at 38.0% while Jacksonville has shot at 29.9%. North Florida looks to continue there run in Atlantic Sun conference in this game. I am taking North Florida -1 in this one.
Best Bet: North Florida -1
Washington vs Oregon State
Oregon State heads to Seattle to take on Washington in this one. Oregon State has done a great job of covering the spread on the road this year, currently covering 80% of the time. Washington, on the other hand, has only covered 60% of there home games. One of the biggest parts of Oregon State’s game this year has been their ability to not turn the ball over. Currently, they are only turning the ball over 16.3% of the time, while Washington is turning it over 21.3% of the time. 4.5 points just aren’t enough to keep Oregon State down in this one, that is why they are my best bet.
