Alabama A&M vs Florida A&M Best Bet

Alabama A&M has been great at home, but Florida A&M's been able to keep road games close as of late. It makes avoiding the spread altogther a smart move. The over in this game has much more value, anyways. Both of these teams rank outside the top 140 when it comes to defensive efficiency.

The Rattlers are allowing 70.7 points per game, while Alabama A&M is giving up 72.6 points per game. An average defensive performance is all that is needed for the over to cash in this SWAC matchup. The total has hit the over in four of Alabama A&M's last six games overall. Back that trend to continue.

Bet: Over 128.5 Points (-115)
