Texas A&M vs. South Carolina Prediction
Will South Carolina cover as a sizable underdog today at home when it hosts Texas A&M at 4:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Aggies are 17.5-point road favorites versus the Gamecocks after opening as a 17-point favorite. As for the total, the number currently sits at 48 after opening at 47.5.
The Aggies are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall and are 4-1 against the number in their last five games coming off a win. That said, they've failed to cover in 17 of their last 25 conference games and are just 3-13 against the number in their last 16 games in October.
As for the Gamecocks, they're 6-0 against the spread in their last six games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game and are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous contest. They're also 7-3 at the betting window in their last 10 games coming off a failed cover in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: This is a tough spot for Texas A&M. The Aggies are coming off a big 45-24 win over Arkansas at AT&T Stadium last Saturday and have Tennessee and Alabama coming up following this game at South Carolina. This is a lot of points to lay in a potential letdown spot for A&M. The Aggies will win, but the Gamecocks keep the score within the 17.5 points.
