I'm not running to the window to bet either one of these teams, but the fact the Grambling Tigers are this big of an underdog tells you all you need to know what oddsmakers think of them. The Texas Southern Tigers are clearly the better team here obviously despite their rough record. It's Texas Southern and the chalk if forced to pick this contest.
