Alcorn State is 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games as an underdog and 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 road games. The over is 4-0 in Alcorn State’s last 4 Tuesday games. Texas A&M is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games. The over is 12-5 in Texas A&M’s last 17 games.

Texas A&M finished the season playing very well and came up just short of the SEC Conference Championship. Alcorn State was also one win away from a title, but played in much weaker conference. Texas A&M has the talent to absolutely roll the Braves here, but how engaged will they be? I am taking Alcorn State with the points here.
