The Texas A&M Aggies have won two of their last three games including a convincing win over LSU in their last game. Texas A&M is 5-6 in the SEC and 1-8 on the road this season. Jamal Jones is the Aggies leading scorer averaging 12.3 points per game. Kourtney Roberson is averaging 9.8 points and 7.0 rebounds, Alex Caruso is averaging 8.0 points, and Jordan Green is averaging 6.8 points. Texas A&M is averaging 65.7 points and they are shooting 43.1 percent while defensively they are allowing 63.1 points and their opponents are shooting 40.3 percent. Texas A&M is hoping with a strong finish they will have some kind of post season.
Vanderbilt is 22-8 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread, 3-1-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 9-4-1 against the spread following a loss. Texas A&M is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games, 3-7 against the spread following a game that they covered the spread, and 0-5 against the spread in their last five road games.
My free pick in this one is going to be on the total and I will post that shortly after the totals are released so please check back. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
