Matchup History

Alcorn State’s 72-69 win back on March 3rd, 2022, made it six straight wins for the Braves over Mississippi Valley State in the head-to-head matchup.


Mississippi Valley State is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a win and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Alcorn State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Monday games while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games overall.


I’m leaning towards Mississippi Valley State here. The Delta Devils may not win a lot of games, but they’ve been competitive in a lot of recent outings and they have a history of giving Alcorn State all they can handle as well. Alcorn State is still one of the top-end teams in the SWAC, but they’ve been winning games, and not necessarily covering a lot of the bigger spreads they’ve been up against in conference play. I think this is another game that Alcorn State wins, but doesn’t cover. Give me the Delta Devils and the points here.
