Florida International Panthers | CUSA (East)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+2700), Win Conference (+6600)
SSA Model Pick: None
FAU, Marshall, and even MTSU have strong teams in CUSA and they are all in the East. The Panthers found their way to a winning record in 2017 but it’s something completely different to find your way to the top of the conference.

Win Total Analysis
5 wins (-110/-110)
SSA Model Pick: Over (Medium Confidence)
Despite an 8-5 record last season FIU wasn’t that good. They actually gave up more points than they scored last year. Apparently the odds makers took note and hung the Panthers at 5 wins. While Indiana and Miami will almost certainly be losses, FIU has a lot of winnable games on the schedule. 5 wins is most likely, but there is some upside here for the Panthers.
