The Texas Southern Tigers and Jackson State Tigers meet Monday in college basketball action at the Williams Assembly Center.

Jeremy Combs is averaging 15.4 points and 8.5 rebounds while Trayvon Reed is averaging 13.1 points and 8.5 rebounds. Jalyn Patterson is the third double-digit scorer and Eden Ewing is grabbing 7.9 rebounds.

The Texas Southern Tigers are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.9 rebounds per game. The Texas Southern Tigers have won five of their last seven road games.

The Jackson State Tigers could use a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Jackson State Tigers are averaging 61.1 points on 39.7 percent shooting and allowing 67.2 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Venjie Wallis is averaging 11.8 points and 4.1 rebounds while Chris Howell is averaging 11.4 points and 2.4 assists.

The Tigers are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games, 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. Southwestern Athletic and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Tigers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Southwestern Athletic, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 9-3 in Tigers last 12 overall. The over is 20-9 in Tigers last 29 road games.

The Jackson State Tigers enter this game shooting just 40.6 percent from the field in their last five games and losing by an average of nearly four points. The Texas Southern Tigers are winning by an average of 8.6 points during their five-game winning streak and are about as battle tested on the road as a team can get. Texas Southern also beat Jackson State by 10 points last month and has won seven of the last nine meetings against the Tigers. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with Texas Southern. 

Pick:
Texas Southern -4.5
