Barring any buzzer beaters, Alcorn State is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
The wins brought the Braves up to 3-11 and the Hornets to 4-12. Two defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Alcorn State has allowed their opponents to shoot 47.70% from the floor on average, which is the 349th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. Alabama State has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the matchup with the 15th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 77.2 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
