Alabama A&M got a win over Tennessee State 82-73 in their opener to start the year off on a high note. Since then however, the Bulldogs have lost four straight to Jacksonville State, Cincinnati, UAB and Western Kentucky. 

Winning Props Bets

In the Western Kentucky loss, the Bulldogs were outscored 47-25 in the first half and couldn’t do much from there in an 82-62 loss. Garrett Hicks topped the team on 21 points, and Jalen Johnson added 10 points with four boards. 

Over on the North Alabama side, they had a 1-3 start that featured losses to Mississippi State, Manhattan and Iona. The Lions have since hit a four-game win streak, taking out Oakwood, Alabama State, MS Valley State and Carver College. 

In the win over Carver, North Alabama got off to a good start with a 47-22 first half. The Lions gave up just 18 points from there in a 103-40 blowout win. Leading scorer Daniel Ortiz put up 22 points with seven rebounds. 

The Lions are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five Wednesday games. The under is 7-0 in North Alabama’s last seven Wednesday games. 

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs are 3-13-1 ATS in their last 17 road games and 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 overall. Alabama A&M is 2-5 ATS in their last seven Wednesday games. 

PICK: I’m probably going to stay with North Alabama. The Lions are coming off a cupcake matchup against Carver, where they shot 50 percent from the field, 42.9 percent from 3-point range and pulled down 56 rebounds. In other words, everything went smoothly. North Alabama is scoring well over this four-game win streak, with 72 or more points in each. 

As for Alabama A&M, I like them to bounce back slightly from a bad outing versus Western Kentucky, but not enough to cover. Should be the Lions if they continue playing well.
