North Alabama is coming off a big, 78-73 road overtime victory in their last game. North Alabama is heading into the conference tournament riding a three-game win streak. Stetson, on the other hand, has lost four straight games heading into this game. Stetson lost to Jacksonville at home, 53-52 in their last game. This will be Stetson’s first time hosting a conference tournament game in a very long time.

Stetson is 17-12 against the spread this season and 5-5 against the spread in their last ten games. Stetson is also 7-5 against the spread at home so far this season.
Stetson has struggled badly as of late, but I do not think that will stop them in this game. This is such an important game for their team and fans, hosting a conference game when a year ago they were in the A-Sun basement. I will take Stetson and lay the 1.5 points as I see them focusing on a solid victory in the Edmunds Center.
