What to Know

The Liberty Flames will face off against the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats on the road at 5 p.m. ET Tuesday at Ocean Center. The Flames won't have the home-court advantage, but they do enjoy an 18-point advantage in the spread.

This past Saturday, Liberty lost to the Manhattan Jaspers by a decisive 76-60 margin. What made the defeat an especially bitter pill for Liberty to swallow was that they had been favored by 13 points coming into the game.

Meanwhile, Bethune-Cookman came up short against the Air Force Falcons on Sunday, falling 73-65.

This next contest looks promising for Liberty, who are favored by a full 18 points. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past three games.

The losses put Liberty at 1-3 and the Wildcats at 1-4. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Flames rank 21st in college basketball when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 57 on average. Less enviably, Bethune-Cookman is stumbling into the matchup with the 16th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 61.2 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against Bethune-Cookman.
