Texas Southern is 6-20 ATS in their last 26 games overall and 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 games following an ATS loss while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 games following a loss. Alcorn State is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following an ATS win.
I’m backing Alcorn State here. The Braves have simply been the better team and arguably the best team in the SWAC this season and while Texas Southern has been primed to pull some upsets in the past, I don’t see it happening here. Alcorn State’s been nothing short of dominant in SWAC play, and they got the cover in both meetings against TSU this season. I’ll back Alcorn State in this one.
