Arkansas is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games, 1-5 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 5-2 against the spread in Tuesday games. Texas A&M is 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games, 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games, and 7-2 against the spread following a win. The home team has covered the point spread in the last four meetings of these two.
The total is set at 140.5 and I see this one going over that number and the over is my free pick. I have a strong play in this one on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
