The Texas A&M Aggies are 5-1 for the season and are coming off of their first loss losing at home to Alabama. Texas A&M is averaging 36.5 points and 453 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 10 times. Aggies QB Kyle Allen has completed 60.9 percent of his passes with 14 touchdowns and five interceptions and Kyler Murray has been seeing regular playing time as well as a change of pace. Tra Carson leads Texas A&M in rushing with 476 yards and four touchdowns and Christian Kirk is the top receiver with 39 catches and four touchdowns. The Texas A&M defense is allowing 24.3 points and 378.3 yards per game with three interceptions, six fumble recoveries, and 20 sacks. Armani Watts leads Texas A&M with 49 tackles, Justin Evans has 37 tackles, and Myles Garrett has 8.5 sacks. The Aggies will need to put last week in the rear view mirror and focus on the task at hand.
Ole Miss is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games, 2-5 against the spread in their last seven SEC games, and 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games against a team with a winning road record.
This game is probably fairly close as both teams can explode on offense so I like the points with the Aggies.
