Kentucky-Texas A&M Clash in SEC Final

Jalen Jones Texas A&M Aggies NCAA

The Texas A&M Aggies have never won a Southeastern Conference tournament title but have put themselves into a great position when they square off with the Kentucky Wildcats in the conference tournament final Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • Texas A&M is 5-0 ATS in its previous five games overall.
  • Texas A&M is 4-1 ATS in its previous four neutral site games.
  • OVER is 4-0 in Kentucky’s previous four neutral site games.

There are no words to describe what the Aggies did to the LSU Tigers in their semifinal matchup Saturday. LSU was never in the game and it was a stroll in the park for the Aggies, who went on to win 71-38 to advance to Sunday’s title game.

The Aggies have done quite well at the betting window in recent meetings with the Wildcats having gone 4-1 against the spread (3-2 SU) in the past five meetings. The pair met back on February 20 with the Aggies winning 79-77 in overtime as 2-point underdogs – the second meeting in a row and third in the last four that went to overtime.

The Wildcats posted wins over Alabama (85-59) and Georgia (93-80) en route to the SEC final and have covered the spread in four-straight contests and five of the last six. Kentucky’s high-octane offense has been the catalyst for a nice run of OVERS of late. OVER bets have gone 9-4-1 in their last 14 games and have cashed in four straight.
