Texas A&M is 4-1 against the spread against teams with a losing record, 2-5 against the spread following a game that they covered the spread, and 2-8 against the spread following a win. South Carolina is 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five games overall, 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 road games, and 1-6-1 against the spread against the SEC.
The total is set at 126.5 and even this low I still like the under with my free pick. My stronger pick is on who will cover the spread and I will post that pick in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
