The Texas A&M Aggies just beat Missouri a couple of weeks ago and has held the Tigers to a combined 92 points in the last two meetings. I've been high on Texas A&M all season long, and its back to finally playing to its potential after some serious hiccups in the middle of the season. However, Texas A&M has had issues on the road this season where its struggling offensively and is being outscored by six points on the season. The Missouri Tigers are a different team at home where they average more than 80 points and are holding teams to just 39.1 percent shooting. I really like Texas A&M's talent, but in this spot, I have to side with the Missouri Tigers.
