Howard Bison vs Norfolk State Spartans prediction

The Howard Bison have been a hit or miss team all season, and now you’re asking them to win two games in as many days. Tough sell. The Norfolk State Spartans have the rest advantage, and they’re at home, where they haven’t lost all season. Norfolk State also beat Howard twice this year, which includes a win a week ago, as the Spartans crushed the Bison by 19 points as 3.5 point favorites. I’d need more points to seriously consider Howard. Give me Norfolk State and the small number.
