The Jackson State Tigers and Southern Jaguars meet Monday in college basketball action at the F. G. Clark Center.
The Jackson State Tigers look for a victory after winning seven of their last 11 games. The Jackson State Tigers are averaging 73.9 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 75.5 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Chris Howell is averaging 11.5 points and eight rebounds while Venjie Wallis is averaging 11.1 points and 1.8 assists. Jontrell Walker is dishing 1.1 assists and Jayveous McKinnis is grabbing 7.6 rebounds. The Jackson State Tigers are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 68.6 percent from the free throw line. The Jackson State Tigers are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.2 rebounds per game. The Jackson State Tigers have lost four of their last five road games.
The Southern Jaguars could use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Southern Jaguars are averaging 74.5 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 73.1 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Eddie Reese is averaging 13.2 points and 3.5 rebounds while Sidney Umude is averaging 12.4 points and 5.3 rebounds. Jayden Saddler is the third double-digit scorer and Richard Lee is grabbing 1.3 rebounds. The Southern Jaguars are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 71.2 percent from the free throw line. The Southern Jaguars are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33 rebounds per game. The Southern Jaguars have lost four of their last seven home games.
The Tigers are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 road games, 9-3 ATS in their last 12 vs. Southwestern Athletic and 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Jaguars are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games following a straight up loss and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 vs. Southwestern Athletic. The under is 6-2-1 in Jaguars last 9 overall. The under is 37-18-1 in Tigers last 56 overall.
The home team has won seven of the last 10 meetings between Jackson State and Southern. The problem is the Southern Jaguars are riding a four-game losing streak and haven't been much better at home recently. The Jackson State Tigers have been the more consistent and better team all year long, so while I usually side with the home team in a pick em contest, I have to give the road team the edge this time.
