Southern shot 41.8% from the field and was -10 in rebounding margin in the loss.

Alabama A&M is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win. The under is 6-2 in Alabama A&M’s last 8 neutral site games. Southern is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games following an ATS loss and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games. The under is 5-0 in Southern’s last 5 games. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings. 


Southern comes into this game with a slightly better conference record than Alabama A&M, but they have lost both regular season meetings with the Bulldogs. These two teams have very similar metrics, so this should be a very good game. Both teams are allowing 71.1 points against per game, but they have played in lower scoring games recently. I like the under in this matchup.
