What to Know

The Alabama A&M Bulldogs and the Florida A&M Rattlers are set to clash at 9:30 p.m. ET March 10 at Bartow Arena in the first round of the Southwestern Athletic Conference Tourney. Florida A&M will be strutting in after a win while the Bulldogs will be stumbling in from a loss.

Alabama A&M was just a bucket short of a victory on Saturday and fell 50-49 to the Southern Jaguars.

Meanwhile, the Rattlers strolled past the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats with points to spare on Saturday, taking the contest 84-73.

Alabama A&M is expected to lose this next one by 3. They are currently five-for-five against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Alabama A&M has only been able to knock down 38.10% percent of their shots, which is the 356th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Florida A&M has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 36th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 65.4 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
