The Grambling Tigers and Southern Jaguars meet Thursday in the college basketball SWAC Quarterfinal at the Bartow Arena. The Grambling Tigers look to snap a four-game losing streak. The Southern Jaguars look for a win after splitting their last eight games.

The Grambling Tigers are averaging 63.8 points on 40.8 percent shooting and allowing 69.1 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Cam Christon is averaging 13.5 points and 3.8 rebounds, while Tra’Michael Moton is averaging 10.4 points and 3.7 rebounds. AJ Taylor is grabbing 5.5 rebounds and Danya Kingsby is grabbing 2.1 rebounds. The Grambling Tigers are shooting 32.5 percent from beyond the arc and 71 percent from the free throw line. The Grambling Tigers are allowing 35.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.3 rebounds per game.

The Southern Jaguars are averaging 70 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 65.9 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Tyrone Lyons is averaging 13.7 points and 4.9 rebounds, while Brion Whitley is averaging 11.6 points and 2.3 rebounds. Jayden Saddler is the third double-digit scorer and Terrell Williams is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Southern Jaguars are shooting 5.5 percent from beyond the arc and 70.3 percent from the free throw line. The Southern Jaguars are allowing 29.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 27.8 rebounds per game.

The Tigers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Jaguars are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 neutral site games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Tigers last 7 neutral site games. The under is 4-1-1 in Jaguars last 6 overall. The underdog is 5-0-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Grambling State Tigers won both meetings this season against Southern, but I’d assume the better team finally gets in the win column here. The Southern Jaguars have easily been the better team this season, and they’re also 17-11 against the spread. Grambling State loses in the underdog role by an average of 9.3 points and shoots 39.8 percent from the field. Line is somewhat reasonable. Give me the Jags.
