Prairie View +125 over Alcorn St

5:00 PM EST. We’ve been handicapping college basketball for a long time with great success. This year is not typical, in that we are getting crushed but trust us when we suggest we’re using the same strategies as we’ve always used. The market, for the most part, is having a banner year, cashing tickets on games that look easy and that’s the outlier here. At some point, those easy looking wagers are not going to cash in and this is another example of precisely that. Alcorn State looks like easy money here and if the man on the street is correct again, so be it. We’re playing the side the sportsbooks need so allow us to break it down.

Alcorn State has won six in a row. They also possess a home record of 6-1 while Prairie View has a mere three wins in 16 road games. Overall, Alcorn State is 15-11 while Prairie View’s overall record is 11-17. As a 9-point choice last game out over Missouri Valley State, Prairie View won by two points. Meanwhile, as a one-point pooch at Jacksonville State last game out, Alcorn State won by 15. Recency bias goes to Alcorn State. In terms of each team’s overall record, give a significant edge to Alcorn State. In terms of conference record, Alcorn State is 12-2 in the SWAC and sitting in first place while Prairie View is 7-8 and sitting in “it doesn’t matter” place. Incidentally, Alcorn State has just a one-game lead over Grambling in the Conference so it’s not like they have the season crown locked up or a #1 seed in the conference tournament locked up. Alcorn State still has work left. Despite the numerous advantages that point in Alcorn State’s direction, including their 6-1 home mark versus Prairie View’s 3-13 road record, the price here is less than a shot from the land of plenty. It has a foul odor to it and that’s the main reason we’re on the underdog here.
