Murray State vs FSU 2019 March Madness Lines

Why #12 Murray State Racers are a good bet +5?

Ja Morant showed why many consider him the best player in college basketball. He took apart the Marquette Golden Eagles with 16 assists, 17 points, and 11 rebounds. Morant’s triple-double showed why Murray State’s a hot pick to be this year’s Cinderella squad.

Florida State has nobody on their team that can match up with Morant. Because Ja should dominate again, the Racers not only have a good shot at covering the spread, they also have a good shot at beating FSU on the moneyline.

Why #4 Florida State Seminoles are a good bet -5?

Is FSU a secure bet in the second round of March Madness?

Florida State didn’t overwhelm the Vermont Catamounts in the first round. They did beat Vermont 76-69, though, and the way they did it was by methodically and simply taking what the Catamounts gave them.

Sometimes, you don’t have to be flashy to win a basketball game. FSU is a solid squad that battled the best in the nation all year long. They’ll find a way to win and cover against an upstart like Murray State.

Murray State vs Florida State Final March Madness Betting Analysis

Ja Morant is a star. The man can score, dish the rock, and grab boards. He’s got excellent vision and no doubt will be the best player on the court when the Racers battle the Seminoles.

However, Morant committed 7 turnovers against Marquette in round one. If he commits that many turnovers versus Florida State, forget it. The Seminoles should take this game easily. The most important reason to back Florida State? Morant and the Racers play a fun, run and gun, style. FSU can match that style because they’re more athletic overall than Murray State.

Although watching Murray State play is fun, this is a bad matchup. FSU wins and covers and they might do it more easily than many believe.

March Madness Betting Pick: Florida State -5
