The Jackson State Tigers and Alcorn State Braves face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at Williams Assembly Center. When these two teams last faced off in February it was Jackson State that won 74-66.
Alcorn State comes into this game with a 1-11 record overall but they have gone 9-3 against the spread. In the last game against Oklahoma the offense could only manage 48 points and that led to the blowout defeat. Alcorn State is averaging 58.9 points while their defense is giving up 76 points per game. Guard Dominic Brewton has been the top player for Alcorn State averaging nine points while shooting 46.4 percent from the field There are five different players that are averaging over seven points a game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Jackson State Tigers who sit with a 2-9 record and they have gone 7-3-1 against the spread. In the last game against Drake, the offense managed 65 points but they gave up 70 and that led to the five point defeat. Jackson State is averaging 57.1 points while their defense is giving up 69 points per game. Gabe Watson has been the top player for Jackson State averaging 15 points while shooting 37 percent from the field. Jayveous McKinnis has also been a strong big man averaging 11.8 points while shooting 53.8 percent from the field.
Jackson State is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games. Alcorn State is 6-1 against the spread in their last 7 games following a straight up loss of more than 20 points. The under is 5-1 in the Braves last six games played on Monday. The under is 4-1 in Jackson State’s last five games overall.
These are both offenses that aren’t great, and I think especially Alcorn State is going to have some major issues scoring. Look for this to be a slower paced game, and that will lead this to be a lower scoring game. Back the under. I also lean with Jackson State to cover the spread, but the strong play is with the under to cash.
