Free Pick:
North Carolina A&T Aggies +4.5

This is a very important game for both teams as the winner of this matchup claims the #1 seed and the MEAC regular-season championship, and I like the Aggies to complete that task as they dominated North Carolina Central by 17 in their only matchup this season. North Carolina A&T has had little problems scoring the basketball this season as they are averaging 80.6 PPG in MEAC games, but they will be tasked with trying to beat the #1 scoring defense as North Carolina Central is holding their opponents to an average of 62.2 PPG. The Aggies have a handful of guys who can fill up the stat sheet, but they have one of the best players in the conference with Ronald Jackson as he is averaging 16.8 PPG and 12 RPG. While the North Carolina Central defense has been great this season, they are one of the worst scoring teams in the MEAC as they are only averaging 69.8 PPG, and that is the biggest difference in this matchup. Final Score Prediction, North Carolina A&T Aggies win and cover ATS 71-69.
