College Basketball Betting Odds:
The Tigers pounce into this evening’s matchup sporting a 12-3 record that ranks them 6th overall in the SEC. With a 1-1 record in conference play, Auburn is having a hard time sizing up against the top dogs in the conference. Fortunately tonight’s matchup should help Auburn catch another conference win and subsequently climb the SEC ladder. However, since Auburn is 2-8 in their last 10 meetings against the Aggies, can we expect them to come out on top tonight? Well the numbers certainly seem to think so, seeing as how Auburn comes in with a much better offense and a tighter defense as well. Right now the Tigers are putting up 84.5 per game while only giving up 66.5 defensively. For comparison, the Aggies are putting up 75.4 and are giving up 72.8 defensively. If those numbers pan out this evening, Auburn will surely come out on top.
Players to Watch: Bryce Brown (15.8 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 2.3 apg), Jared Harper (15.0 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 6.7 apg), and Austin Wiley (11.3 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 0.1 apg).
Texas A&M Aggies
The Aggies charge into this evening’s SEC matchup sporting a 7-7 record. Since they’ve posted 1-2 record in conference play this season, it’s no surprise to see Texas A&M ranked 7th overall in the SEC. On top of that, the Aggies’ 1-4 record in their last 5 makes it perfectly clear that this team is in a rut. And since they’re facing the 14th best program in the nation, we can fully expect Texas A&M to fall to 7-8 this Wednesday night.
Players to Watch: TJ Starks (14.4 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 3.6 apg), Savion Flagg (12.9 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 2.7 apg), and Wendell Mitchell (9.5 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 2.5 apg).
