Alabama A&M vs Grambling Betting Prediction

Grambling comes into this matchup on a three game winning streak and they are currently tied for first place in the SWAC with Southern. The Tigers are only scoring 66.9 points per game, but they are at home for this matchup. Alabama A&M is 4-6 in conference play, but they have won two of their last three games. The Bulldogs are towards the bottom of the conference standings and their defense is to blame, as they are allowing 81.3 points against per game this year. I think we are going to see a good amount of points scored in this game and I am taking the over here.
