Prairie View A&M is one of those teams that wins games by trading scores, as a lot of its results last season were 60-plus combined points. Well, the Panthers won't be able to keep up with the Aggies, but both of these clubs have playmakers who can find the end zone. Texas A&M is going to score at least 40 points.
I expect a high scoring game here, which is why the over is the smart play for this game.
