The Florida Gators started the season off on fire and looked like a legit title contender, but that hasn't been the case recently and they've folded often against good teams. I was high on the Texas A&M Aggies from the beginning of the season and even had them beating WVU as big underdogs. Texas A&M has looked the part of a team that could win the SEC, and the Aggies will be eager to bounce back after a loss to Alabama. The balance of the Aggies will get the job done here, so give me the reasonable line with the home team.
