Tiger month is officially underway. The Aggies received a nice long break with a bye week followed up with an
easy, powder puff SWEETMOTHEROFMOSESWEALMOSTLOSTTOULM. Unfortunately, the Aggies can’t play Lamar and SMU again. Instead, they head right back into the SEC buzz-saw with the Auburn Tigers, Missouri Tigers, and LSU Tigers licking their chops.
Elsewhere in the SEC, the eyes of the nation descend upon Death Valley once again. Bama intends to keep their playoff hopes alive with a win. LSU aims to extend their 3 game winning streak. Can they pull off the upset like they did against #3 Ole Miss two weeks ago?
With four SEC teams on a bye week and Ole Miss and Mississippi State hosting Presbyterian and UT Martin respectively, there are only 4 bet-able games. I’ll do my best not to weep while we pick Auburn -21.5 over the Aggies.
- Auburn – How on earth did we get here? If you had told me after the South Carolina game that Texas A&M would be a 21.5 dog to Auburn, I would have made that my “bet the mortgage” game of the year. Instead, the Aggies continue to regress and have not beaten the spread since the SMU game. In summary, the Aggies did not cover the spread against Arkansas, Mississippi St, Ole Miss, Alabama, or ULM. In fact, in the past two games alone the Aggies have missed the spread by a combined 76 points. Awful. Don’t bet on these guys. I can’t bring myself to bet against the Aggies, but definitely don’t bet on them.
- Vanderbilt – It seems that Vegas has once again over corrected. The Florida team that pummeled Georgia last week is not the same team we have seen all season. And don’t expect a game plan that consists of 95% run plays to surprise Vanderbilt. The Commodores will know what to expect and game plan accordingly. Look for this one to be a low scoring affair with Florida covering by a touchdown or less late in the 4th quarter.
Jonathan – 23/45 correct for 51.1%
Daniel – 20/45 correct for 44.4%
