New Orleans vs. Texas A&M-CC Prediction

I’m on Texas A&M-CC here. The Islanders have been on a roll as of late, and they still have something to play for here as they’re fighting for seeding in the Southland tournament. New Orleans has been scrapping as well, but the Islanders have won 5 straight by double-digits and are heating up at the right time of the year. Give me the Islanders laying the points.
