Texas A&M on Fire for UNDER Bettors

Danuel House Texas A&M Aggies NCAA

The Texas A&M Aggies have been going through a bit of a rough patch of late and haven’t been profitable at the betting window against the spread, but totals bettors have been reaping the reward of taking the UNDER in recent Aggies games.

Shark Bites
  • Kentucky is 5-12-1 ATS in its last 18 road games.
  • Kentucky is 1-3 ATS in its last four road games at Texas A&M.
  • Texas A&M is 1-6 ATS in its last seven games versus the SEC.

This game is presently a PICK at online shop BetOnline with the total at 143.5. Both OVER and UNDER is -110.

Texas A&M has lost five ot its last seven games both SU and ATS, but the UNDER has cashed in three-straight Aggies games and a whopping 10 of their previous 11 heading into Saturday’s meeting with the Kentucky Wildcats.

There was just a tick under 135 combined points scored in those previous 11 A&M games with the Aggies responsible for 70.2 points per game over that stretch. The Aggies managed to snap a four-game winless drought with a 71-56 win over Ole Miss and will look to make it back-to-back wins with the surging Wildcats in town Saturday.

Kentucky has won four-straight games (3-1 ATS) and has been relentless in the process. Each of those four wins came by double-digits and the Wildcats have been averaging 82.75 points scored per game in those wins.

The Cats currently reside in the top spot in the SEC with a 10-3 record in conference play and with the way the team is playing, and particularly freshman Jamal Murray, it will be tough for the Aggies to trim that lead.
