Who Oddsmakers Like: Texas A&M. According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Aggies are 5-point road favorites to knock off the Wildcats, who opened as 5.5-point underdogs. The total, meanwhile, sits at 141.5 after hitting the board at 141.

Who We Like: The Wildcats are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall and have failed to cover the number in five of their last six conference games. They're also 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games coming off a loss, are 2-6 at the betting window in their last eight games versus an opponent with a winning record, and have failed to cover the spread in six of their last eight games against an opponent with a win percentage above .600.
On the other side, the Aggies have covered the spread in four of their last five conference games, including in their upset victory at Auburn a few nights ago. A&M has the momentum and is taking on a Kentucky team that is athletic but has not played as a cohesive unit this season.
