Shane’s Free Pick
I really don’t trust either of these teams, but I especially don’t expect this Florida A&M squad. Florida A&M is averaging only 58.2 points and they are going to really struggle to score again here. Florida A&M isn’t going to even reach 60 points here, and that will be the difference as Southern is going to get the job done. Back Southern against the spread.
