Texas A&M lost by a score of 64-50 Saturday at LSU to fall to 14-14 overall and 8-8 in Southeastern Conference action. The Aggies trailed 28-20 at halftime and continued to fall behind further after the break. Savion Flagg paced Texas A&M with 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting including 5-of-6 from 3-point distance.

The road team is 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings. The underdog is 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings.
The Tigers are 1-1 ATS in the last two meetings. The last two meetings have gone over the total.
Auburn has not lost at home this season, but it is also a team that has not exactly been blowing teams out home or away. The last team it defeated a team by as many points as this spread is wide was back on January 22. The Aggies might be the weakest team the Tigers have faced since playing Vanderbilt at home back on January 8, but even that contest was a close decision. I'd rather side with Texas A&M here than bet on a squad that has lacked a knockout punch as of late.
