Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.
Alabama State’s 77-67 win back on March 3rd, 2022, made it five straight wins for the home team in this matchup, while snapping Southern’s two-game head-to-head win streak.
Southern is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 and 11-1 ATS in their last 12 Monday games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games following a loss by 20 or more points. Alabama State is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games following a double-digit loss at home while the under is 15-5-1 in their last 21 games overall.
I’m leaning towards Southern here. The Jaguars have been all of nothing for the most part in conference play, they either lose outright or win convincingly while the Hornets have almost been all nothing as they’ve disappointed more often than not this season. The Jaguars continue to be one of the best in the SWAC and I think they get it done here. Give me Southern laying the points.
