Texas A&M vs. Alabama Pick

SEC College Basketball Predictions: Texas A&M vs. Alabama 12/30/17

Can No. 5 Texas A&M open up SEC play with a big road win when the Aggies take on Alabama tonight at 6PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, this game is considered even, as neither Alabama nor Texas A&M are being given any points against the other. The over/under total for this game is listed at 143 points. Today’s game takes place from Coleman Coliseum in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and will air live on ESPN2.

Texas A&M has won four straight coming into SEC play. The Aggies stand at 11-1 on the season and 5-4 against the spread. A&M has failed to cover in two of its last three games. The Aggies are scoring 81.6 points per game on offense while giving up 64.4 per game on defense. The team’s leading scorer, DJ Hogg is suspended until Jan. 6 while Admon Gilder is sidelined with a knee injury until next month. Tyler Davis is the team leader right now with 13.9 points and 8.4 rebounds per contest.

Alabama has struggled lately, losing four of their last seven against the likes of Texas and Arizona. The Crimson Tide are 8-4 on the season with a 4-6-1 record against the spread. Bama is only 1-5-1 ATS in its last seven games. Alabama is averaging 76.9 points per game on offense this year, while allowing 71.8 per game on defense. Collin Sexton is averaging 20.5 points per game to lead the team while Donta Hall is adding 11.1 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Texas A&M vs. Alabama

Alabama has won three of its last four meetings with Texas A&M and the Crimson Tide have covered the spread in four straight encounters. Texas A&M is shorthanded for this game and the Aggies are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five SEC games. Alabama is 5-1 ATS in its last six conference games and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a double-digit loss at home. The public betting is slightly with the Aggies today, but I like the Tide to find a way to win.
