The Aggies are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Aggies last 4 overall. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

I'm not trying to back either one of these teams, but the South Carolina State Bulldogs are obviously in far worse shape on both sides of the court. If I'm going to side with either of these teams, it's to lay the chalk with the North Carolina A&T Aggies.
