Over on the South Carolina State side, it’s been pretty much a lost season as the team hasn’t had much to build on yet. Over six games heading into this weekend, the Bulldogs had losses to North Carolina A&T, Florida A&M and North Carolina Central. 

In Saturday’s victory, the Bulldogs kept their halftime lead up with a 27-26 advantage in the second on the way to the win. Floyd Rideau led the team with 15 points, one rebound and one assist. 

The Bulldogs are 6-2 ATS in their last eight Sunday games and 5-0 ATS in their last five overall. South Carolina State is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 as a home underdog and the under is 5-0 in their last five Sunday games. 

Meanwhile, the Rattlers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight Sunday games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven as a favorite. The over is 12-5 in Florida A&M’s last 17 road games and they’re 4-1 ATS in their last five as a road underdog. 

PICK: I’m sticking with South Carolina State in this one. Sure, the Bulldogs record this year is pretty abysmal, but they’ve been coming close in a lot of games. Saturday’s matchup saw South Carolina State finally get over the hump, and they came out of the gate with a solid first half. I like the Bulldogs to keep it going here and cover.
