Florida A&M (10-13) vs. Alcorn State (9-15)

Florida A&M travels to Lorman, Missouri to take on the Alcorn St. Braves for an 8:30 pm tip. Florida A&M is currently 10-13 overall, 4-10 on the road. Despite the terrible record, they are 8-2 in their last 10 games and hold a 4-1 road record within that span. The Rattlers are tied in 3rd place in the Southwestern Athletic Conference with an 8-4 conference record. Alcorn St. is 9-15 overall, 2-3 at home. In their past 10 games they are 6-4 and have won 1 of their last 4 home games. The Braves are also tied in the Southwestern Athletic Conference with an 8-4 record.

The Braves have been red hot in their last 10 games, winning 8 of them. FAMU will have the edge defensively in this matchup, allowing opponents to score 62.4 ppg. The Rattlers will have the best player on the floor tonight, M.J. Randolph. Randolph is averaging 19.2 ppg and 3.6 assists per game. In the last 10 games, FAMU is 7-2-1 ats and are 4-0-1 ats on the road.

The Braves have been struggling in their recent home games and should struggle tonight as well. They are 2-3 ats and straight up at home this season. The Braves have a slightly better offensive attack, but defensively is where they struggle. They give up an average of 70.6 ppg. Alcorn St.’s best player is Justin Thomas, who averages 10.2 ppg.

Final Thought

This will be an ugly game, but there is a ton of value here. Florida A&M is the hot team right now and has been fantastic ats recently. They hold the edge against Alcorn St. head to head and will have the better player on the floor. Generally, that may not matter as much, but in this case, both teams are not very good. Having the more dominant player in a matchup like this is crucial. Alcorn St. also gives up a ton of points, while FAMU limits teams to 8 points less per game. I think the wrong team is favored in this matchup and we are getting +5 points!
