According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the Aggies are 9-point home favorites over the Gamecocks after opening as an 8.5-point fave. As for the total, the number has dropped a full point from 142.5 down to 141.5.

What's the best bet in this matchup? Take a look at the total.

The under is 22-5 in the Gamecocks' last 27 road games and 21-5 in their last 26 road games versus a team with a winning percentage of greater than .600. The under is also a perfect 7-0 in the Aggies' last seven games overall and 4-0 in their last four home games.

Another reason to bet the under? Senior Jalen Jones of Texas A&M still leads the Aggies with 16.1 points per game but his field-goal percentage has decreased in each of his last four games. He also struggled in last season's meeting with South Carolina, going 3 of 11 from the field while scoring just 12 points in a 62-52 victory.

We like the under 141.5 in this matchup.
