Anyway, the Hornets are absolutely brutal, losing eight of their last 10 games and only winning one of eight matchups on the road. The Aggies aren’t much better, but they have won two of their last three and do have a 3-1 record on their home court.
Neither team scores a whole lot, but you have to love North Carolina A&T’s rebounding advantage. The Aggies average 36.2 rebounds per game, while the Hornets manage to barely snag 30 per game. The ability to get second chance shots and get into the paint will be critical in this Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference matchup.
The pick has to be Aggies simply because of that advantage and the sweet record at home, a place where they don’t have many opportunities to play. To make matters sweeter, the Aggies are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games against conference foes. They’re also 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games following a straight up victory.
You can count on North Carolina A&T getting the job done at home and covering the small chalk.
