NCAA Basketball Betting Odds:
The Tigers pounce into this evening’s matchup sporting a 16-3 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the SEC. The program finds themselves in that spot thanks to the 6-0 undefeated record they’ve posted in conference play. Nevertheless, the SEC is still led by Tennessee who is 7-0 in SEC play this season. Notwithstanding that fact, LSU can certainly bridge that gap with a win over Texas A&M tonight. However, the Tigers haven’t had much luck against Texas A&M as of late, seeing as how they’re 4-6 in their last 10. Granted that was probably against better Aggies and not the version we’re seeing this year. The numbers certainly seem to suggest so, as LSU is scoring 83.2 per game while the Aggies are only putting up 72.3 per matchup. Defensively things are as even as they can be since both teams are giving up 72.4 per game.
Players to Watch: Tremont Waters (14.2 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 6.2 apg), Skylar Mays (13.8 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.3 apg), and Naz Reid (13.2 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 0.9 apg).
Texas A&M Aggies
The Aggies step into this evening’s contest sporting a pitiful 8-10 record. With a 1-5 record in conference play this season, it’s no shocker to see Texas A&M ranked 11th in the conference. And since they’ve posted a 1-3 record in their last 4, no NCAA basketball betting player will be taking them this evening. Nevertheless, tonight’s odds aren’t favoring LSU all that heavily. While this may be a tad bit surprising, it only makes betting against the Aggies this evening more alluring.
Players to Watch: TJ Starks (12.8 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 3.7 apg), Savion Flagg (12.6 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 2.7 apg), and Wendell Mitchell (11.9 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 2.1 apg).
