florida basketball makes a trip to the west coast to take on the Xavier Musketeers in Portland, Oregon, on thursday november 24for the Phil Knight Legacy tournament, and if you’re wondering how you can watch Thanksgiving live, you’ve come to the right place.
The holiday affair that pits a member of the Southeastern Conference against a Big East opponent on a neutral court is bound to be a good one. The Gators triumphed in their last game against the Florida State Seminoles, coming back from a deep deficit to prevail by double digits in Tallahassee. However, the Musketeers also enter the matchup even 3-1 thus far and pose a formidable threat to Todd Golden’s team.
Florida and Xavier have met five times before since 1959, with the Musketeers holding a slim 3-2 lead in the all-time series. They won the first two games before the Gators took the next two, but rallied to take the most recent matchup in the NIT last March with an amazing final score of 72-56.
Here’s when and how you can tune in to the game:
The Musketeers are favored by 1.5 points over the Gators according to BetMGM. Here are the full odds as of 8:20 am EST on Thursday.

Betting odds for the Gators-Musketeers basketball game
Bettors have a strict line on this game, as the two teams play off pretty well on paper. Florida looked well tuned in their first game of the season, as well as FSU’s second half of the game, but they’ve also had some very questionable stretches interspersed. It’s hard to say what playing on a neutral court on the other side of the country on a family vacation will do to the team, but don’t expect it to give them an advantage. In fact, the Gators are likely to drop this one, but it should at least be a fun game to watch.
