Alabama State vs. Bethune-Cookman Prediction

I’m backing Bethune-Cookman here. Alabama State hasn’t been terrible and Bethune-Cookman’s been playing a lot of close games at home, but they’re winning those games more often than not and it’s not like we’re being asked to lay a massive number here. The Wildcats play their best ball at home at 10-2 SU this season and I think they have enough in the tank to get over the finish line with the win and cover here.
