The Florida State Seminoles enter the tournament splitting their last six games. The Florida State Seminoles are averaging 79.6 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 70.1 points on 40 percent shooting. M.J. Walker is averaging 13 points and 2.6 rebounds while RaiQuan Gray is averaging 12 points and 6.5 rebounds. Scottie Barnes is the third double-digit scorer and Anthony Polite is grabbing 4.5 rebounds.

The Spartans are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Seminoles are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Spartans last 6 games as an underdog. The over is 33-16-2 in Seminoles last 51 overall.
The UNC Greensboro Spartans didn’t play many power house programs this season, so the jury is out on how good they actually are. The Florida State Seminoles are still a physical, lengthy defensive team, but they also have an offensive punch this season and are a dangerous team entering the tournament. UNC Greensboro hasn’t faced a team like FSU and this could be a class difference. I’ll lay the chalk with Florida State, as I’m not sure UNC Greensboro can hang against the Noles athletes.
