What to Know
After three games on the road, the Grambling Tigers are heading back home. The Tigers and the Florida A&M Rattlers will face off in an SWAC battle at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Assembly Center. Grambling should still be riding high after a victory, while Florida A&M will be looking to get back in the win column.
The Southern Jaguars typically have all the answers at home, but on Saturday Grambling proved too difficult a challenge. Grambling sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 61-57 win.
Meanwhile, Florida A&M came up short against the Alabama A&M Bulldogs on Monday, falling 71-63.
The Tigers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 5-point margin of victory. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Grambling's victory brought them up to 11-15 while the Rattlers' loss pulled them down to an identical 11-15. Two offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Grambling has only been able to knock down 40.80% percent of their shots, which is the 27th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Florida A&M has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 27th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 64.8 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
