The Texas A&M Aggies are 15-9 (6-5) this year after they lost to Vanderbilt by a score of 74-73 in their last game. Texas A&M led 31-30 at the half, but they allowed 44 points in the second half in the loss. The Aggies shot 51.1% from the field and were +3 in rebounding margin in the game. Texas A&M had won their previous three games against Tennessee, Missouri, and Florida. The Aggies are scoring 74.2 points per game with 42.7 rebounds per game and 11.3 assists per game, while giving up 68.2 points against per game this year. Wade Taylor IV is averaging 19.8 points per game, 3.7 rebounds per game, and 3.7 assists per game.

Alabama Preview

The Alabama Crimson Tide are 17-7 (9-2) this season after they defeated LSU by a score of 109-92 in their last game. Alabama only led 49-46 at the half, but they scored 60 points in the second half to pull away with the win. The Crimson Tide shot 46.9% from the field and made 18 three pointers in the game. Alabama lost to Auburn by a score of 99-81 in the game prior to LSU, but did win the previous four games.

Texas A&M vs Alabama Betting Prediction

Texas A&M comes into this game after a crushing loss to Vanderbilt in their last game. The Aggies were flying high after a huge win over Tennessee, but couldn’t keep the momentum against a bad Vanderbilt team. Alabama is currently leading the SEC standings and they are one of the highest scoring teams in the country. On the other side, Texas A&M is only shooting 40.1% from the field and while they are the better defensive team, I don’t think they have the offense to keep up with Alabama at home. Take the Crimson Tide here.
