Liberty Flames Analysis

Liberty’s offense has been nothing short of explosive. Quarterback Kaidon Salter has amassed 763 passing yards with a 59.2% completion rate, alongside an impressive 9 touchdowns and zero interceptions. With 10.7 yards per pass attempt, Salter is a big-play quarterback. The rushing game, led by Quinton Cooley, has added another dimension to their attack with 221 rushing yards at an average of 5.4 yards per carry.

On the defensive side, Liberty needs to focus on reducing sacks, with Salter being taken down 3 times already. However, with such a potent offense, the defense isn’t under constant pressure, allowing them to focus on their game. They must prepare for Florida International’s balanced offense to maintain their undefeated streak.

Florida International Panthers Analysis

The Panthers have also showcased an impressive offensive lineup. Quarterback Keyone Jenkins has 867 passing yards with a 56.2% completion rate and 5 touchdowns. However, he’s also been sacked 7 times and thrown 3 interceptions, indicating some issues with pass protection. The rushing game has been formidable with Shomari Lawrence, who has 291 rushing yards at an average of 6.2 yards per carry.

Defensively, the Panthers need to tighten up against Liberty’s explosive offense. Their recent performances suggest vulnerabilities that a quarterback like Salter could exploit. Their focus should be on their pass rush and secondary, as Salter has shown he can rip apart defenses if given time in the pocket.

Liberty Flames vs. Florida International Panthers Against the Spread

The Liberty Flames have shown great potential both outright and against the spread, going 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 12-5 SU in their last 17 games. Particularly impressive is their 8-0 SU record against teams in the Conference USA, which bodes well for them in this matchup. However, their 1-4 ATS record in their last 5 Week 4 games suggests some caution.

On the other side, the Panthers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and have an impressive 6-1 ATS record against teams in the Independents conference. Despite a lackluster 7-13 SU record in their last 20 games, the Panthers cannot be discounted, especially when playing at home where the total has gone OVER in 4 of their last 5 games.
