Here are the betting odds and prediction for Fairleigh Dickinson vs. Florida Atlantic.
UMBC did it in 2018. Even less likely was FDU’s win, since they were ranked much lower than UMBC and didn’t even win their conference to get into the tournament.
Also, FDU is the smallest team in the country this year, and they beat Purdue, which was one of the tallest.
In the next round, the Knights will play #9 seed FAU, and our experts’ predictions for Fairleigh Dickinson vs. Florida Atlantic are below. We’ll also tell you how to get the latest deal crypto from YouWager.lv.

Fairleigh Dickinson vs. Florida Atlantic Prediction
Our experts think that the owls will beat the Knights by a wide margin. The main reason for this is that they can handle the pressure with a team like Fairleigh Dickinson.
FDU has the second-highest pressing rate in the country. This lets them force turnovers at a rate that is in the top 40 in the country.
It worked against Purdue, but Florida Atlantic is much more likely to not only handle the pressure but also take advantage of it. Florida Atlantic is in the 83rd percentile this season in terms of its press offense.
The Owls also have a rate of offensive turnovers that puts them in the top 70 in the country. Florida Atlantic should be able to score on FDU’s 353rd-ranked defense as long as they can handle the press.
On the other hand, Florida Atlantic is in the top 40 of adjusted defensive efficiency rankings, and Fairleigh Dickinson shouldn’t be able to score many points against the Owls even though it has a good offense. The Knights couldn’t score 1.0 points per possession against Purdue, so it’s unlikely they’ll be able to do it against a defense with the same rank.
Our experts say that the best way to bet on Fairleigh Dickinson vs. Florida Atlantic is to take Florida Atlantic -13.5.
