Texas A&M Aggies Vs. Arkansas Razorbacks Betting College Football
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
To begin with, the arrival of head coach Jimbo Fisher was seen as the ultimate coup for Texas A&M. In fact, Fisher was presented with a championship trophy of the future at his opening press conference. In turn, his first season added to the betting on college football hype about future Aggie’s dominance. But Texas A&M has already lost two games and is nowhere near the dominant team well-heeled boosters have invested big money in. One has to wonder if there is a curse at College Station. Coaches come and go but the mediocre results remain the same.
Texas A&M Aggies Vs. Arkansas Razorbacks
Texas A&M Aggies
Last week for Texas A&M was a disheartening 28-20 home loss to Auburn. The Aggies are 2-2 straight up, 3-1 against the spread, and 2-2 on totals. Overall Texas A&M ranks only 52nd for scoring offense and 46th for yardage. Defensively the Aggies rank a solid 18th in the nation. Fisher’s hiring rivaled Jackie Sherrill as far as excitement at College Station. While it is still early in his tenure the loss to Auburn is a setback that casts the shadow of a doubt.
Players to Watch: QB Kellen Mond (1082 YDS, 64.4% COMP, 7.4 AVG, 7 TD, 3 INT, 5 SACKS, 138.3 RTG, 23 RSH, 77 YDS, 3.3 AVG, 2 TD), RB Isaiah Spiller (34 RSH, 255 YDS, 7.5 YPC, 2 TD, 7 REC, 62 YDS, 8.9 YPC, 0 TD), WR Jhamon Ausbon (25 REC, 364 YDS, 14.6 YPC, 2 TD), WR Quartney Davis (16 REC, 226 yds, 14.1 YPC, 2 TD), WR Kendrick Rogers (17 REC, 200 YDS, 11.8 YPC, 0 TD), PK Seth Small (16-16 XP, 7-9 FFG)
In the same way, Arkansas is coming off a bad 31-24 home loss to San Jose State. The Razorbacks are 2-2 straight up, 1-3 against the spread, 1-3 under the total. Of great concern is an offense that ranks 74th for scoring. Head coach Chad Morris is celebrated as a master of the passing game. So far it doesn’t show. A defense that ranks 84th in the country is another eyesore.
Players to Watch: QB Nick Starkel (910 YDS, 60.5% COMP, 8.0 AVG, 7 TD, 6 INT, 137.3 RTG), RB Rakeem Boyd (73 RSH, 394 YDS, 5.4 YPC, 3 TD), RB Devwah Whaley (32 RSH, 136 YDS, 4.3 YPC, 2 TD, 6 REC, 63 YDS, 10.5 YPC, 0 TD), WR Trey Knox (21 REC, 299 YDS, 14.2 YPC, 2 TD), WR Mike Woods (17 REC, 239 YDS, 14.1 YPC, 1 TD), WR Treylon Burks (9 REC, 172 YDS, 19.1 YPC, 0 TD), TE Cheyenne O’Grady (10 REC, 152 YDS, 15.2 YPC, 1 TD), PK Connor Limpert (14-14 XP, 6-7 FG)
