The Grambling State Tigers and Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at the Harrison HPER complex.
The Grambling State Tigers come into this game with a 9-10 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. Even though there have been some struggles winning, Grambling State has covered each of the last four spreads. In the last game against Jackson State the offense could only manage 59 points and that led to a four point defeat. Grambling is averaging 65.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 68.9 points per game. Cam Christon has been the best player for Grambling averaging 12.6 points while shooting 44.2 percent from the field and 34.1 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is Mississippi Valley State who sits with a 1-20 record overall but the yahve covered the spread in each of the last two games. The Delta Devils last game was also against Jackson State and their offense could only manage 54 points. The Delta Devils come into this game averaging 55.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 88.6 points per game.

The under is 10-4 in Grambling’s last 14 road games.
These are both teams who struggle to score and that is going to be the case again in this one. Look for a low scoring game that stays under the posted total. In terms of the side I don't really trust either team but there is no chance I am going to bet on the Delta Devils even getting this many points. It's a lean to the Grambling Tigers to cover the spread.
