Texas A&M vs. LSU Free Pick
Two unranked SEC rivals will clash in Baton Rouge tonight when LSU hosts Texas A&M at 7:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Tigers are 5.5-point home favorites over the Aggies after Texas A&M opened as a 5-point underdog. The total has been bet up two full points, going from 52.5 up to 55.
Texas A&M enters play with an 8-3 record but is just 5-6 against the spread, while LSY is 7-3 on the year and 4-6 at the betting window.
This might be Les Miles' final home game in Baton Rouge and his players should be plenty motivated. But that doesn't change the fact that this Tiger defense has been shredded for 30 points (vs. Alabama), 31 points (vs. Arkansas) and 38 points (vs. Ole Miss) the past three weeks. Leonard Fournette remains a handful for opposing defenses, but LSU has zero passing game so it'll be difficult for the Tigers to pull away tonight. A&M's defense has been inconsistent but is coming off a shutout of Vanderbilt last week on the road and should show up again tonight in Death Valley. Take the points.
