Seven of the Florida A&M Rattlers' 11 covers this season have taken place on the road, but they enter this game playing subpar basketball overall and they still lose on the road by an average of 13.3 points. The Norfolk State Spartans have not only won five straight games, but they're winning those games by an average of 13 points while allowing just 38.7 percent shooting from the field. The Norfolk State Spartans also win at home by an average of 17.3 points while allowing just 35.9 percent shooting from the field. I'll lay the reasonable number with the home team.
