The history on the hardwood between the Florida State Seminoles (1-4, 1-4 ATS) and Siena Saints (2-2, 2-2 ATS) is a very short story.

On November 18, 1992, the Seminoles posted an 89-80 home-court victory over the Saints. That’s it. That’s the history between the two schools.

They’ll be doubling the exposure on Thanksgiving, as the Saints and Seminoles clash in the first round of the ESPN Events Invitational in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Florida State is set as 8.5-point favorites in this game. The Seminoles are 5-1 straight up in past appearances in this tournament.

In the college basketball public betting splits on this game, the people are riding with the Seminoles. Florida State is getting 70% of handle and 76% of bets in the spread splits. Moneyline numbers are going 92% of handle and 90% of bets in favor of the Seminoles.

There’s a rather unusual split showing on the total, however. While 95% of the handle is on the over, bets are splitting 50-50 between the over and the under. The total has gone over in seven of Florida State’s last nine games. The over has also hit on four of Siena’s last five games.

Florida State is set as the +2000 seventh betting choice to win the ACC in the college basketball conference odds.

Florida State Seminoles Betting Trends

Getting their first win of the season in their last game, an 81-72 verdict over Mercer, the Seminoles blocked a season-high 11 shots. Five different players had a block, led by five from sophomore center Naheem McLeod.

Junior guard Cam’Ron Fletcher scored a career-high 23 points in the victory over Mercer. He enters this game averaging 12.4 points per game, also a career high, and  has hit for double figures in three of Florida State’s first five games.

Junior guard Caleb Mills is averaging 15.6 PPG. He’s gone for double digits in three successive games. As well, Mills leads the Seminoles from the free-throw line with an .833 percentage.

Florida State’s Leonard Hamilton is just four wins shy of becoming the fifth coach in ACC history with 400 or more career victories.

Siena Saints Betting Trends

Committing 20 turnovers that led directly to 24 points, the Saints fell 69-59 to Harvard in their last game.

Graduate student guard Andrew Platek was pacing Siena in that game with 15 points. That matched his career high and was the third game in a row he’s scored 15 points. Platek is shooting 50% from beyond the arc (13-of-26). Graduate student forward Jackson Stormo accounted for 12 points and six rebounds. He’s leading the team with 6.0 rebounds per game.

Sophomore guard Javian McCollum is pacing the Saints with 15.8 PPG. Coming off the bench, graduate student Michael Baer is pulling down a team-high 6.3 RPG.

Florida State vs Siena Prediction

The Seminoles won the championship of this tournament in 2009 when it was known as the Old Spice Invitational. They’ve never lost a first-round game in this event, going 3-0.

Florida State is 1-3 SU and ATS as a betting favorite this season. The Saints are 2-5 SU and ATS over their past seven games.

Siena is about to get busy. The Saints played just three games over the past 14 days. They’ll be playing three games in four days during this tournament. After a 2-0 SU and ATS start, the Saints have gone 0-2 SU and ATS in losses to Harvard and Army.

Pick: Florida State Seminoles -8.5 (-110)
