Point Spread: -1/-105 Central Florida
Central Florida should be a much heavier favorite tonight over UL-Lafayette. This game has rout written all over it as the underrated Knights go on the road and come away with a blowout victory over the Ragin Cajuns Wednesday.
UCF is 8-2 this season with four returning starters from last year's team. Their only losses this year have come on the road against FSU and Harvard. They do have numerous quality wins though, beating both Charleston and Connecticut on the road while also topping Richmond at home last time out.
Lafayette is just 5-8 this season despite playing a much softer schedule than UCF. Lafayette has bad losses to North Dakota State (58-78), CS-Fullerton (63-69), Lamar (63-80 and Robert Morris (64-72). This team doesn't have nearly the same talent at the Knights, and that will show on the floor tonight.
UCF is led by Michael Jordan's son, Marcus, who is averaging 17.1 points and 3.6 assists at the guard position. They also have F Keith Clanton (16.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.9 blocks) who is one of the better players in the country that few know about. G Isaiah Sykes (11.2 points, 6.1 rebounds) does a little bit of everything to help this team.
Lafayette is 2-14 ATS in their last 16 home games after scoring 65 points or less 2 straight games. The Knights are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite. The Ragin' Cajuns are 0-8-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. Conference USA opponents. These three trends make for a 26-2 (93%) system backing the Knights. Take UCF Wednesday.
