Why should you bet on the Aggies?

Texas A&M has a wealth of offensive talent, led by Jalen Jones. He put up 20 points in just 23 minutes against Missouri on Saturday, and he was a major reason why the Aggies put up 50 points in the first half of that game. Danuel House and Admon Gilder put in 14 each (with House scoring 12 in that first half, going 4 for 8 from behind the arc). The Aggies also have an impressive interior game, able to dominate the boards on both ends of the floor. The Aggies have won four straight in the SEC, and they are taking on an Auburn team that simply lacks the tools to stop them.

Why should you put your money on Auburn?

As we’ve learned time and time again this season, the only certain thing in the NCAA is uncertainty when it comes to basketball games. I don’t think I would take Auburn straight up, even at home, but if I could get a line of 10, I might consider Auburn. The Aggies play well both at home and away, but they could view this as an easy game ahead of their Saturday showdown with Vanderbilt. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Tigers keep this close enough to prevail with a 10-point line.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

Texas A&M is rounding back into that elite form that they had early in the season, when they were ranked #5 in the land. I like them to take care of business at Auburn, and I am predicting a final score of 80-68.
