Texas A&M vs. Vanderbilt Pick
Which team will pick up a big win in the SEC Tournament when Vanderbilt faces Texas A&M today at 7PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Vanderbilt is favored in today’s game, as the Commodores are getting odds of -3.5 points against the Aggies. The over/under total is listed at 131.5 points. These two met twice this season, with Vanderbilt winning both meetings. Today’s game will be held from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
Vandy is the seventh seed in the SEC Tournament after going 10-8 in conference play and 17-14 overall. The Commodores are 18-11 against the spread on the season as well and have covered in six straight entering this weekend. Vandy is averaging 71.7 points per game on offense this season while allowing 69 points on defense. Matthew Fisher-Davis is leading the team with 14 points per game while Luke Kornet adds 13.8 points and 6.2 rebounds per contest.
A&M is the 10th seed in this tournament after going 8-10 in SEC play. The Aggies are 16-14 overall and just 11-16 against the spread this season. A&M averages 71.2 points per game on offense this year while allowing 67.9 on defense. Tyler Davis is averaging 14 points and 6.9 rebounds per game to lead the team while Admon Gilder is putting up 13.8 points and 3.9 assists per contest.
Vandy has had A&M’s number this year. The Commodores had a 68-54 win at A&M on Jan. 31 and a 72-67 home victory on Feb. 16. Vandy also comes in hot. Its lone loss over the last three weeks was by six at Kentucky, which it covered a 10.5-point spread. I think Vanderbilt is peaking right now and a dangerous team in this week’s tournament in its home state.
