Over on the Southern side, they’re 10-15 this year. After dropping consecutive games to Grambling State and Jackson State, the Jaguars got a win versus Arkansas-Pine Bluff in their last game.

In the win over the Lions, Southern’s Skyler Baggs led the way on 19 points with four rebounds. Both Lamarcus Lee and Amel Kuljuhovic each had 10 points with one assist there, combining for six boards as well.

The Jaguars are 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight Monday games and 5-0 ATS in their last five home games. Southern is 4-1-1 ATS in their last six overall and 3-1-2 ATS in their last six after an ATS win.

Meanwhile, the Devils are 7-1 ATS in their last eight Monday games and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 after an ATS win. MS Valley State is 5-0 ATS in their last five road games and the over is 5-2 in their last seven road games.

Mississippi Valley State’s numbers this year look pretty bad—and they are—but the team has put up a few solid offensive outings here and there, namely 88 points versus Alcorn State and 83 versus Prairie View. Trouble is, the defense is a points sieve and the team is flailing.

In any case, Southern isn’t a great team either but they’ve had their moments as well. The Jaguars can score at a decent clip when they get going, so I’m going to stick with Southern on the cover here.
