Auburn is 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven home games, 3-0-1 against the spread following a loss, and 1-6 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. Texas A&M is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games, 4-1 against the spread against the SEC, and 5-12 against the spread in their last 17 road games against a team with a winning home record. The road team has covered the point spread in the last five meetings of these two teams.
The total is set at 132.5 and I like the under in this spot as both teams can play defense. My much stronger play is on who will cover the sporead and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
