The Golden Lions are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Southwestern Athletic and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Tigers are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Southwestern Athletic, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Tigers last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 Tuesday games.

The Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions just beat Grambling 10 days ago, a game in which they held the Tigers to just 38.9 percent shooting. The Golden Lions have also produced 11 of their 17 covers this season on the road, and they enter this game playing solid defense. I doubt either team shoots the ball well enough in this contest to pull away, so I'll take a stab with the points on the road.

Pick:
Arkansas-Pine Bluff +6
