Fats Baller's Friday SWAC Semifinals Picks: Grambling vs Texas Southern, Alabama A&M vs Alcorn St.
Fats on the Patriot League: 18-18, -$21.
Fats on the SWAC 14-15-2, -$33.
Thursday SWAC Results:
6 Grambling vs 3 Southern, 3 pm EST
Grambling +6 1/2, $11 to win $10.
WIN: Grambling both covered and won, 60-58.
5 Alabama A&M vs 4 Florida A&M 9:30 pm EST
Florida A&M -2, $11 to win $10
LOSS: MY SWAC winning streak ended with Alabama A&M topping Florida A&M, 61-56.
6 Grambling vs 2 Texas Southern, 3 pm EST
Grambling +7, $11 to win $10.
Game Under 134 1/2, $11 to win $10.
As I said yesterday, even when Grambling loses they've been hanging with teams, and both their losses to Texas Southern this season were by less than 7. I'm adding the Under wager because no one has been scoring in this tournament.
5 Alabama A&M vs 1 Alcorn St. 9:30 pm EST
Alabama A&M +5, $11 to win $10
I've been bullish on Alcorn St., winners of 7 in a row, but except for an outlier against Arkansas Pine Bluff, they have not been blowing teams out. Tonight they face the other hottest team in the league, winners of 7 of 8. The way this tournament has played, there's no reason to think it won't be close.
