A&M vs. Arkansas Handicap Pick
SEC foes clash tonight at 7:00PM ET when Arkansas hosts No. 5 Texas A&M on ESPNU. Are the Razorbacks a decent bet as a home dog?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Aggies are 3-point road favorites versus the Razorbacks tonight while the total currently sits at 151.5 points. A&M enters play with a 17-2 record and is 7-5 against the spread, while Arkansas is 9-10 straight up and 8-7 at the betting window.
Based on 72% of wagers being placed on the Aggies to cover tonight, the majority of bettors love the fact that they only have to lay 3 points on the No. 5 team in the nation to cover against a sub-.500 team tonight. But A&M is in a look-ahead spot with Iowa State on deck this weekend and Arkansas is difficult to beat at home. The Razorbacks also rank fifth in the nation in 3-point shooting, can be disruptive defensively and is 20-9 ATS in its last 29 home games versus a team with a winning road record.
