The Jackson State Tigers and the Texas Southern Tigers meet in college basketball action from the H&PE Arena on Monday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Texas Southern is listed as a 3.5-point home favorite here with the money line set around -170. The over/under is set at 137.5 points.
Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last minute announcements, both teams should come into this game completely healthy.
Texas Southern has won the last two meetings between these two teams including a 54-50 win in the conference tournament last season.
Jackson State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 Monday games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Texas Southern is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 home games.
I get that laying points with Texas Southern at home hasn’t been ideal in a lot of their recent games, but the problem with backing the other side is that Jackson State hasn’t been good on the road either. More often than not, even in conference, Jackson State was getting blown out and I see it being no different here. I’m not rushing to bet this game, but I’d side with Texas Southern and lay the points here.
