Alcorn State’s 57-47 win over Florida A&M back on January 21st, 2023 made it back-to-back wins for the Braves in the head-to-head matchup.
Alcorn State is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400. Florida A&M is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 21-8 ATS in their last 29 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 6-0-1 in their last 7 home games.
I’m sticking with Alcorn State in this one. The Braves are one of the teams to beat in the MEAC and I don’t see Florida A&M really doing anything to threaten that position for the Braves. Florida A&M hasn’t really been all that effective at home and I just think this is a spot where even on the road, Alcorn State flexes some muscle and gets a double-digit win and cover here.
