Auburn Tigers Vs. Texas A&M Aggies NCAAF Betting Line & Picks
Posted by: Mike Davis
Following their week one win over Oregon the Auburn Tigers got second looks from the gambling public. Auburn has not lost so far on the season but the offense has been hit and misses with freshman quarterback Bo Nix. Head coach Gus Malzahn continues to tinker. In the same way, Texas A&M started with a lot of betting support to open the 2019 campaign. Clemson showed the Aggies just how far they must go to become an elite college football odds pick. Head coach Jimbo Fisher is recruiting well at College Station. However, championship results will take time.

Now Auburn is 3-0 both straight up and against the spread with two under. Despite that perfect mark, the Tigers have looked sluggish at times. Auburn ranks only 42nd in the country for points scored. By contrast, the War Eagle defense ranks 22nd best in the land for points allowed. Bo Nix came up clutch in the week one win over Oregon. Consistency has not been attained by the true freshman. Indeed, the Tigers rank 102nd for passing nationally. Gus Malzahn resumed play-calling duties this year. While production has been mixed the results are what count.

Texas A&M Aggies
Following a Texas A&M, 24-10 loss at Clemson in week two was a 62-3 home win over Lamar. Even though its hard to get a read on such weak 1-AA opposition the Aggies delivered the money as 45-point chalks. Defensively Texas A&M is an impressive 13th in the country for points allowed. Offensively they are a more lackluster unit. To illuminate, the Aggies rank 37th for total offense and 32nd for points scored. Namely, Kellen Mond has been solid though unspectacular as quarterback. Sor far A&M is 2-1 straight up and 3-0 on the board with two unders.

Auburn Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies Betting Picks
As was previously noted Texas A&M is a great value with the College football odds at Kyle Field. Of great concern has been Auburn’s lack of reliability on the board in away games. Nix should find the Aggies defense a problem.
