|Date & Time||Monday March 4, 2019, 9:00 PM (EST)|
Alabama State Hornets +2.5 O/U: 140.5
The Prairie View A&M Panthers and the Alabama State Hornets will match up on the college basketball circuit Monday.
Prairie View comes in here with a 16-12 mark overall. The Panthers are enjoying a five-game win streak right now, taking out Jackson State, Grambling State, MS Valley, AR-Pine Bluff and Alabama A&M in that time.
In their win over the Bulldogs, Prairie View’s top scorer was Gary Blackston with 17 points, three rebounds and three assists. Gerard Andrus added 16 points and six rebounds for the Panthers in that one, and Darius Williams chipped in 15 points.
Over on the Alabama State side, they’re 11-15 this season. The Hornets are 1-2 in their last three games, with a win over Southern U sandwiched between losses to Alcorn State and Texas Southern.
In the loss to the Tigers, Alabama State’s lead scorer was Jacoby Ross on 15 points with two rebounds and two assists. Reginald Gee and Tobi Ewuosho added 10 points with three assists and three rebounds apiece for the Hornets in that one.
The Panthers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven overall and 2-5 ATS in their last seven versus the Southwestern Athletic. Prairie View A&M is also 1-5 ATS in their last six after a straight-up win and the over is 8-3 in their last 11 overall.
Meanwhile, the Hornets are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five at home versus a team with a losing road record. Alabama State is 6-2 ATS in their last eight after a straight-up loss and the under is 14-6 in their last 20 overall.
Over this five-game win streak, Prairie View has scored pretty well outside of the AR-Pine Bluff result (48-44 in a pretty tight game all the way around), with at least 69 points in the other four.
Alabama State has been putting up points pretty consistently as well however, so this game should be a pretty good battle. That said, I’m sticking with the Panthers on the road cover since they’ve looked solid lately.
