Monday SWAC Picks:
The game to watch is Alcorn St. at Texas Southern, but I don't like the spread. Not making an official pick but I think Texas Southern will win, but Alcorn St. will cover. That those two teams are 80 spots apart in the Pomeroys is ridiculous. They both played killer non-conference schedules and are one win apart in their own conference. The big differentiator is that Texas Southern won at Florida back in early December. Enjoy the game.
Bethune-Cookman at Grambling St., 8:30 pm EST
Grambling -6 1/2, $11 to win $10.
Bethune-Cookman is coming off a surprise win against a struggling Southern squad, but the Monday night road games are a bear in this conference - and Grambling, in the season's final home game, is the better team.
Jackson St. at Prairie View A&M, 9 pm, EST
Prairie View -4 1/2, $11 to win $10.
Two evenly matched teams but Jackson St. is on the second game of its Texas swing, and Prairie View is home for senior night. Jackson St. does not inspire confidence on the road but Prairie View has played close ones at home. I'd like to bet the line down to 2 1/2 but I'm trying to keep things simple.
Florida A&M at Southern, 9 pm EST
Game Under 138, $11 to win $10.
Southern has struggled the last few games and dropped two in a row at home to teams it should have beaten. A&M doesn't score a lot on the road and I think Southern should want to get back on the winning track with some defense after giving up 87 to Bethune-Cookman.
