Georgia Southern Eagles at UCF Knights
- Spread: UCF -12
- Over/under: 146

The Eagles (5-2 against the spread) shot 38.5% on 3s in their latest win over Mercer, but they’re much more likely to regress to their usual standard against the Knights (7-2 ATS).
UCF owns the 17th-lowest Adjusted Tempo (65.5 possessions per 40 minutes) in the nation and matchup well against Georgia Southern’s eighth-highest pace (76.5 PP40) via an elite defense.
