FDU Knights vs FGCU Eagles Predictions

The kids will be on display Tuesday as FDU is the youngest team in the nation. They live will live or die on the three point shot and I have them dieing, but covering the spread which is what I care about. FDU should be able to keep the game close but in crunch time the youthful team will be prone to mistakes. Taking the points.

Score Prediction: FGCU 76 – FUD 73
