NCAA Football Betting Odds:
Texas A&M Aggies
The Aggies enter this weekend’s action sporting a 2-1 record that ranks them 3rd in the SEC. So far this season, Texas has yet to face an SEC opponent. Unfortunately for them, their first conference opponent just happens to be the No. 1 team in the nation. So what chance does Texas have of knocking down the top dog? The college NCAA football betting odds aren’t giving them much of a shot. And looking over the numbers, bettors shouldn’t either. Both teams have dynamic offenses and stellar defenses. Right now Texas is earning 44.3 points per game. While that may be eye-catching, it’s not enough to match Bama’s 56.7. Similarly, the Aggies 15 points allotted per game is pretty good, but not as good as the Crimson Tide’s slim 9.3. With that in mind, it’s clear Texas is the underdog ahead of this one.
Players to Watch: Kellen Mound (824 passing yards, 6 TD, 0 INT), Trayveon Williams (399 rushing yards, 4 TD, 6.8 AVG), and Jhamon Ausbon (201 receiving yards, 0 TD, 13 REC).
The Tide are once again pegged as a massive NCAA sportsbook favorite. And since Alabama is 5-1 SU in their last 6 matchups against Texas A&M, it’s safe to assume they’ll be coming out on top this weekend. The Crimson Tide is coming off a massive 62-7 routing of Ole Miss which marked their 3rd consecutive lopsided victory. Considering that the Aggies lost 28-26 to Clemson just two weeks ago, we can expect Texas A&M to suffer another loss to a top 5 team. The only question now is whether or not that loss will be more lopsided than what Clemson turned in. The numbers give Bama a slight advantage and considering their momentum, there’s no reason to expect anything different.
Players to Watch: Tua Tagovailoa (646 passing yards, 8 TD, 0 INT), Najee Harris (203 rushing yards, 3 TD, 6.8 AVG), and Jerry Jeudy (287 receiving yards, 6 TD, 11 REC).
