7 Jackson St. vs 2 Texas Southern, 3 pm EST
Texas Southern -4, $11 to win $10.
Texas Southern is the third most experienced team in the country and has been the better team all year. I don't see what will change today.
8 Prairie View A&M vs 1 Alcorn St., 9:30 pm EST
Alcorn St. -1, $22 to win $20.
I don't get this line and that always makes me nervous. Alcorn has won six in a row and claimed the SWAC regular season conference crown. Prairie View has lost three in a row and is the 8-seed. They're relatively close in the Pomeroy rankings because Prairie View started the season around 120 spots ahead of Alcorn. They then played the two most difficult non-conference schedules in the country. But Alcorn rose close to 90 spots throughout the season and Prairie View dropped 60, so they've sort of met in the middle, but Alcorn has been playing much better over the past two months.
