The Norfolk State Spartans and the North Carolina Central Eagles meet in college basketball action from McDougald-McLendon Gymnasium on Monday. 

Norfolk State enters this game at 10-12 so far. After a six-game winning streak versus B-CU, Coppin State, Howard, MD Eastern Shore, SC State and Florida A&M, the Spartans lost their last game to NC A&T.

In the loss to the Aggies, Norfolk State’s Joe Bryant led the way on 17 points with six rebounds and three assists. Tyrese Jenkins added 13 points and three boards there, and Steven Whitley had 12 points with six rebounds and four assists. 

Over on the NC Central side, they’re 9-12 so far. The Eagles are 4-1 in their last five games, falling to Florida A&M while otherwise beating MD Eastern Shore, B-CU, Delaware State and SC State. 

In the win over the Bulldogs, NC Central’s CJ Keyser put up 23 points with three rebounds and three assists to lead the team. Jibri Blount was the only other player in double-digits there for the Eagles with 10 points and five rebounds. 

The under is 6-2 in the Eagles’ last eight overall and they’re 9-1-1 in their last 11 home games. NC Central is 7-2 ATS in their last nine after an ATS win and the under is 27-10-1 in their last 38 home games. 

Meanwhile, the Spartans are 7-2 ATS in their last nine Monday games and the over is 6-2 in their last eight overall. The over is 4-1 in Norfolk State’s last five road games and 16-5 in their last 21 Monday games. 

Norfolk State had their opportunities versus NC A&T, but weren’t able to kick the scoring up enough and fell by six points. In the last seven games, the Spartans have been below 69 points just twice, winning one of those. 

NC Central has put up some pretty decent offense over their last five games or so as well, so this should be a pretty interesting game. All things considered, I like NC Central to keep things rolling here and cover.
