Alabama A&M is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5-point margin of victory. Now might not be the best time to take the Bulldogs against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past three consecutive games.
Alabama A&M is now 6-11 while the Hornets sit at 4-13. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: Alabama A&M is stumbling into the game with the 23rd most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 75.6 on average. Alabama State has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 348th worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 78 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
