2019 ITA Men's Kickoff

Preview - Florida Region

In looking at this region I have to admit that the first question that enters my head is "What would the Vegas odds be on Florida losing a point"? This Florida lineup is just ridiculous. I mean, they've got Alfredo Perez at 5 with a UTR well over 14. Granted he's coming off an injury and the fall off but he was a staple at #1 for Florida not that long ago. We'll save the recipe for beating Florida for another day because in no world will it be possible for them to lose this weekend.

So let's focus on the one match at that should be competitive: Louisville vs. Florida Atlantic. Even though it's very early in the year, this is an important match for Louisville as it is going to be a VERY long ACC season for them. Outside of Boston College they will likely be an underdog in every other ACC match. These should be very competitive matches but if it's outdoors FAU has the advantage at 6, but I like Mizrahi indoors. I wouldn't be overly surprised to see Mizrahi get pulled if it is outdoors. However, I like Louisville at 3-5 which means they just need to find one more point between dubs, 1 and 2 and I think every one of those is a toss-up. I'm no math major (ok, actually I am) but the odds of losing 3 toss-ups is 1 in 8, so give me the Cards in a thriller. #L1C4

Predictions:

Louisville 4, Florida Atlantic 3
Florida 4, William & Mary 0
Final: Florida 4, Louisville 0
