Jacksonville State vs. Tennessee State

01/17 05:00 PM CB (599) JACKSONVILLE STATE VS (600) TENNESSEE STATE

Take: (599) JACKSONVILLE STATE

Reason: Tennessee State has been playing outstanding basketball, and they already own a fairly lopsided win over Jacksonville State. But the visitors have a little positive flow going right now and there's no doubt they'll be hungry to atone for that home loss to this opponent. I'm a little concerned if Darion Rackley can't play for Jax State, as he's their primary long range threat. But the revenge factor is important, and even bigger is the fact that Tennessee State has a huge game at Belmont on deck. This is absolutely a potential flat spot for the hosts, and I'm going to step in and make the play on Jacksonville State getting the points.
