The Alabama A&M Bulldogs and Alcorn State Braves meet Monday in college basketball action at the Davey Whitney Complex.

The Alabama A&M Bulldogs could use a win after losing eight of their last 11 games. The Alabama A&M Bulldogs are averaging 61.2 points on 40.8 percent shooting and allowing 72.4 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Andre Kennedy is averaging 11 points and 5.8 rebounds while Jalen Reeder is averaging 9.6 points and 1.1 assists. Arthur Johnson is dishing 1.1 assists and Tre Todd is grabbing 1.5 rebounds. The Alabama A&M Bulldogs are shooting 33.1 percent from beyond the arc and 61.4 percent from the free throw line. The Alabama A&M Bulldogs are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 28.3 rebounds per game. The Alabama A&M Bulldogs have lost all 15 road games this season.

The Alcorn State Braves could also use a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Alcorn State Braves are averaging 60 points on 39.5 percent shooting and allowing 72 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Maurice Howard is averaging 13.4 points and 3.1 rebounds while Troymain Crosby is averaging 11.6 points and three assists. Reginal Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and DeShaw Andrews is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Alcorn State Braves are shooting 29.9 percent from beyond the arc and 67.6 percent from the free throw line. The Alcorn State Braves are allowing 32.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.3 rebounds per game. The Alcorn State Braves have won five of their last six home games.

The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The Braves are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The over is 7-2 in Braves last 9 overall. The under is 8-3 in Bulldogs last 11 games following a ATS loss.

Alabama A&M may have won the first meeting this season, but Alcorn State has won six of the last seven overall and most of those wins weren't close. The Alabama A&M Bulldogs haven't only lost all 15 of their road games this season, but they're losing by an average of 16.8 points while allowing 49.8 percent shooting. The Alcorn State Braves are 6-2 ATS at home this season and have covered six of their last seven at home overall. I'll eat the reasonable chalk.

Pick:
Alcorn State -4.5
