Texas A&M In Rare, Profitable Position As Massive Favorites

Texas A&M has been one of the best teams in the nation this season, but how confident should you be laying -43.5 when the Aggies host New Mexico State on Saturday? If history is any indication, A&M will cover.

Texas A&M has been a favorite of 40 or more points four times in school history but has covered in every single one of those contests. Those four games saw A&M outscore opponents 267-24 with the last two opponents failing to find the end zone.

One of those games came earlier this season when Texas A&M took on the Prairie View Panthers – some team from the SWAC that most people have never heard of. That game saw Texas A&M win a 67-0 massacre in which the Aggies accumulated 672 offensive yards.

New Mexico State has floundered in the Sun Belt this season, posting a 1-3 record in the conference and 2-5 overall. These Aggies have surrendered 41.6 points per game while giving up 8.7 yards per pass attempt – tied for the fourth-worst in the FBS.
