The Tigers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Commodores are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 6-0 in Tigers last 6 overall. The over is 19-6-1 in Commodores last 26 overall.

The Vanderbilt Commodores obviously have the talent edge, and being at home doesn’t hurt. However, let’s not act like Vanderbilt is a top level SEC squad and laying double-digit chalk regardless of opponent is risky. Vanderbilt doesn’t blow teams out often and is winning at home by an average of just 3.8 points. The Grambling Tigers will obviously be the more motivated side, as they don’t get these matchups typically. I’ll take a shot with the points.
