The Line: Texas Southern Tigers -4 -- Over/Under: 147
The Grambling State Tigers and the Texas Southern Tigers meet in college basketball action from H&PE Arena on Tuesday.
Coming into this SWAC Tournament matchup, Grambling State sits at 17-14 overall. Over the last five games Grambling State is 4-1, falling to Alabama A&M while otherwise beating Jackson State, AR-Pine Bluff, MS Valley and Alabama State.
In the win over Alabama State, Grambling State’s leading scorer was Ivy Smith with 16 points, four rebounds and four assists. Terreon Randolph posted 13 points with seven rebounds in that one, and Prince Moss had 11 points with seven rebounds for Grambling State.
Over on the Texas Southern side, they’re 15-16 this year. In the last four games Texas Southern is 2-2, beating Alabama A&M and Alabama State but falling to Southern U and Alcorn State otherwise.
In the loss to Alcorn State, Texas Southern’s top scorer was Eden Ewing with 24 points, seven rebounds and two assists. The only other Texas Southern player in double-figures there was Ja’Mare Redus with 20 points, five rebounds and one assist.
Texas Southern is 2-5 ATS in their last seven games after an ATS loss and 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 games after a straight-up loss. Texas Southern is 1-5 ATS in the last six games overall and the over is 4-0 in the last four home games.
Meanwhile, Grambling State is 5-1 ATS in their last six Tuesday games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games after a straight-up win. Grambling State is 2-8-2 ATS in their last 12 games after an ATS win and the under is 5-0 in their last five overall.
Outside of the one relatively down game versus Alabama A&M, Grambling State has been pretty darn solid during their last few games. The last time these teams met up was a 93-79 home win for Texas Southern however, so that will weigh heavily on Grambling State’s mind.
In any case, Texas Southern has continued to score well themselves, but they’ve also given up a truckload of points in their last two games. Still, I like Texas Southern to manage a cover here.
