The Texas A&M Aggies and the LSU Tigers will meet up on the college basketball court Tuesday.

The Aggies enter this game with a 12-14 mark on the year. The Aggies have won four of their last five games, falling to SC and taking out Missouri, Georgia, Alabama and Arkansas otherwise.

In the win over the Razorbacks, Texas A&M’s lead scorer was Savion Flagg with 22 points, nine rebounds and four assists. Wendell Mitchell added 20 points for the Aggies there, and Josh Nebo put up 14 points.

Over on the other side, they’re 22-5 on the season. Following a tight 82-77 home loss against Florida, the Tigers welcomed in Tennessee on Saturday, and proceeded to overpower the Vols 82-80 when the game was finished.

In the win over the Volunteers, LSU’s Ja’Vonte Smart led the team on 29 points, five assists and five rebounds in the OT victory. Skylar Mays added 23 points for the Tigers in that one, and Davell Bigby-Willams doubled-up on 10 points and 10 boards.

The Aggies are 4-0 ATS in their last four Tuesday games and 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games. Texas A&M is 5-1 ATS in their last six overall and 5-1 ATS in their last six versus the SEC.

Meanwhile, the Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their last six Tuesday games and 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 versus the SEC. LSU is 10-4 ATS in the last 14 overall and 1-4 ATS in the last five home games versus a team with a losing road record.

There’s been a couple of times during this Texas A&M run where they’ve had to rely on defense to get the job done, but on the whole the Aggies are scoring well also—now that they’ve made it though that tough part of there schedule.

Still, and even tough this should be a rough game, I like LSU on the home lift here to keep things interesting at least.
