Alabama A&M vs Texas Southern Betting Prediction

These two teams come into this game just two wins away from making the NCAA Tournament and they have plenty of momentum heading into this matchup. Texas Southern went 12-6 in conference play and they have won six of their last seven games. Alabama A&M has won three of their last four games, but they were only 9-9 in the SWAC this season. Texas Southern won the only regular season meeting these teams had by a score of 85-69. Both teams only shoot 41% from the field, but Texas Southern is the better defensive team. I think Texas Southern is the play here, as they are the slightly better team and they have plenty of experience making deep runs in this tournament. Take the Tigers here.
