What to Know
The Indiana Hoosiers will host the FGCU Eagles to start their respective NCAA Basketball runs. Tip off is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. ET on November 7th at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.
Tuesday's matchup is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: FGCU were smashing the glass last season, having averaged 34.8 rebounds per game. However, it's not like Indiana struggles in that department as they were even better at 35.9 per game.
Looking back to last season, FGCU finished on the right side of .500 (17-14), and they're hoping to kick off an even more successful campaign this year. Similarly, Indiana had a phenomenal run, finishing with a superb 21-10 record.
FGCU is hoping to beat the odds on Tuesday, as the experts think they're headed for a loss. They finished last season with a 13-17 record against the spread.
The disadvantage in the odds might be especially worrying for FGCU considering the team was a sub-par 4-6 as the underdog last season. Betting on them to win was the most profitable play last year, as bettors who put $100 on that outcome in every game walked away with $670.99. Indiana will open their season as the favorite, and the team was 18-4 as such last season.
Indiana is a big 12.5-point favorite against FGCU, according to the latest college basketball odds.
The oddsmakers had a good feel for the line for this one, as the game opened with the Hoosiers as a 12-point favorite.
The over/under is set at 143 points.
