ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll probably stick with Texas A&M here. The Aggies are coming off a dominant win over South Carolina, shooting a nice 54.8 percent from the field with a 48-16 rebounding advantage (20-5 offensive). The Aggies are riding a six-game win streak with 66 or more points scored in five of those outings. As for Florida, they’re on a solid three-game win streak themselves with 67 or more points scored in each of those. This one should end up a high total if both teams get going. I like Texas A&M better on the cover, though.
