The New Orleans Privateers are 1-1 this season but most recently took a loss by 15 points to TCU in their only game so far against D-1 competition. New Orleans is averaging 71 points per game shooting 46.3 percent from the floor including 55.6 percent from beyond the three-point arc while defensively they are allowing 86 points per game with their opponents shooting 56.6 percent. Kevin Brown leads the Privateers averaging 19.5 points per game.

Texas A&M is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight home games, 6-1 against the spread at home against a team with a losing road record, and 4-1 against the spread at home following three or more road games. New Orleans is 5-1 against the spread following a loss, 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games, and 3-9 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
New Orleans allows points in bunches but this is a big number but still I see Texas A&M drilling the Privateers.
