NCAA Betting Online Odds:
Texas A&M Aggies
The Aggies step into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 4-2 record as well as a No. 22 nationwide ranking. Normally it’s hard for a program with two losses in the year to break the national rankings at this point in the season. However, considering that those two losses were against No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Clemson, it’s easy to see why Texas A&M is still No. 22. Naturally, this pegs them as an NCAA betting online favorite over South Carolina. Furthermore, since the Aggies are 4-0 in their last couple of meeting against the Gamecocks, you could argue that the odds should be more lopsided.
Players to Watch: Kellen Mond (1,447 passing yards, 9 TD, 5 INT), Trayveon Williams (720 rushing yards, 7 TD, 6.0 AVG), and Jace Sternberger (351 receiving yards, 5 TD, 22 REC).
South Carolina Gamecocks
The Gamecocks charge into this weekend’s matchup sporting a meager 3-2 record. It’s more than likely that South Carolina would be sitting at 4-2 this season had their Week 3 matchup against Marshall not been canceled. But in the end, South Carolina now has a lower win percentage than anticipated. Looking over the numbers, it’s easy to see why the odds are keeping the lines even. Right now the Aggies are scoring 33.3, which is right around the 30.0 that South Carolina delivers. Defensively things are a little more lopsided but still roughly even. Currently the Gamecocks give up 25.8 which is higher than the 20.2 the Aggies give up. Cleary the numbers give the edge to Texas A&M this Saturday. Will South Carolina’s home field advantage be able to counter that?
Players to Watch: Jake Bentley (928 passing yards, 7 TD, 6 INT), Rico Dowdle (332 rushing yards, 2 TD, 4.4 AVG), and Bryan Edwards (309 receiving yards, 5 TD, 24 REC).
