The Georgia Bulldogs and Texas A&M Aggies meet Tuesday in college basketball action at the Reed Arena.

The Georgia Bulldogs could use a win here after losing eight of their last nine games. The Georgia Bulldogs are averaging 74.7 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 75.4 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Rayshaun Hammonds is averaging 12.7 points and 6.5 rebounds while Nicolas Claxton is averaging 12.4 points and 2.1 assists. Tyree Crump is the third double-digit scorer and Derek Ogbeide is grabbing 5.9 rebounds. The Georgia Bulldogs are shooting 33.8 percent from beyond the arc and 71.9 percent from the free throw line. The Georgia Bulldogs are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The Georgia Bulldogs have lost their last five road games.

The Texas A&M Aggies could also use a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Texas A&M Aggies are averaging 71.5 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 72.9 points on 42 percent shooting. Wendell Mitchell is averaging 12.7 points and 2.2 assists while TJ Starks is averaging 12.6 points and 2.5 rebounds. Savion Flagg is the third double-digit scorer and Christian Mekowulu is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The Texas A&M Aggies are shooting 30.6 percent from beyond the arc and 68.6 percent from the free throw line. The Texas A&M Aggies are allowing 33.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.4 rebounds per game. The Texas A&M Aggies have lost six of their last seven home games.

The Bulldogs are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Southeastern, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Aggies are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record. The Bulldogs are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the road team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Aggies last 5 overall. The under is 16-7 in Bulldogs last 23 road games.

The Georgia Bulldogs have completely fallen apart over these last few weeks, as the losses have piled up and the defensive effort seems to be getting worse. Georgia is allowing an average of 82.6 points in its last five games and is losing by an average of 12.7 points on the road overall this season. The Texas A&M Aggies have struggles of their own, which includes being just 3-10 ATS at home this season. However, Texas A&M continues to get after it defensively and has been in some tight games recently to where you at least feel better about its struggles. This is a game the Texas A&M Aggies should win at home, so I'll lay the chalk.

Pick:
Texas A&M -4
