The Florida A&M Rattlers and Morgan State Bears meet Monday in college basketball action at the Hill Field House.

The Florida A&M Rattlers could use a win here after splitting their last eight games. The Florida A&M Rattlers are averaging 61.3 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 69.9 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Justin Ravenel is averaging 15.4 points and two rebounds while MJ Randolph is averaging 7.9 points and 1.8 assists. Kamron Reaves is dishing 2.4 assists and Rod Melton Jr. is grabbing 2.2 rebounds. The Florida A&M Rattlers are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 58.8 percent from the free throw line. The Florida A&M Rattlers are allowing 32 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 27.4 rebounds per game. The Florida A&M Rattlers have lost five of their last seven road games.

The Morgan State Bears could also use a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Morgan State Bears are averaging 70.2 points on 39.4 percent shooting and allowing 76.7 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Stanley Davis is averaging 12.2 points and 6.4 rebounds while Sherwyn Devonish-Prince Jr. is averaging 11.1 points and two assists. Martez Cameron is dishing 3.5 assists and David Syfax is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Morgan State Bears are shooting 31.6 percent from beyond the arc and 70.4 percent from the free throw line. The Morgan State Bears are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.7 rebounds per game. The Morgan State Bears have split their last six home games.

The Bears are 2-12 ATS in their last 14 Monday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Rattlers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The over is 4-0 in Rattlers last 4 road games. The under is 4-1-2 in Bears last 7 home games. The over is 6-1-1 in Bears last 8 Monday games.

The Morgan State Bears have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Florida A&M Rattlers, which includes an absolute road beatdown in the meeting last year. While Morgan State has had its struggles lately, it's a team that's played its best at home and is winning by an average of 7.7 points. The Florida A&M Rattlers have been thumped in most of their road games where they're averaging just 60.3 points and being outscored by an average of 11.4 points. I don't enjoy laying chalk with a team struggling to win outright, but this is a manageable game for the Morgan State Bears.

Pick:
Morgan State -3.5
