Texas A&M vs. Florida Prediction
Will Texas A&M pull off the small upset tonight when it takes on Florida at 7:00PM ET?
THE ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Gators are 2.5-point home favorites to beat the Aggies after opening as 3.5-point favorites. As for the total, the number hit the board at 54.5 but was bet down to 51 at the majority of online sports bookssports books.
TEXAS A&M AGGIES BETTING TRENDS: The Aggies are 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four games but have struggled to cover the spread outside of that. They're 2-6-1 against the number in their last nine conference games, are 7-21 at the betting window in their last 28 games in October, and are 8-22 against the spread in their last 30 games coming off a loss. Public bettors are all over the Aggies at the betting window.
FLORIDA GATORS BETTING TRENDS: The Gators have covered the spread in four of their last five games played in October but are just 1-4-1 against the number in their last six games coming off a loss. They've also failed to cover in five of their last six games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous contest.
OUR PREDICTION: Texas A&M showed plenty of fight against top-ranked Alabama last week and the Aggies had won four in a row before suffering that defeat. Freshman Kellen Mond threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score against 'Bama and is gaining experience every week. The Gators, meanwhile, continue to be stout defensively but can't muster much offensive production. Felepie Franks should struggle once again and I like A&M to pull off the small upset.
