Texas A&M is coming off a 45-38 win over Tennessee in overtime two weeks ago and is now a perfect 6-0 on the year. The Aggies failed to cover in that game as a 7.5-point favorite and have now failed to cover in back-to-back games. That said, Texas A&M is still a healthy 4-2 at the betting window this season.

OUR PICK: Despite the high-scoring games for Alabama, this should be a defensive struggle throughout. Alabama ranks fifth in the nation in total yards allowed (274.7), is first in run defense (64.6), and is eighth in points allowed (15.0). A&M's defensive numbers aren't as pronounced but the Aggies are holding teams to just 19.2 points per game in 2016. The under is a perfect 7-0 in the Aggies' last seven road games and is 8-2-1 in their last 11 games overall, while the under has cashed in four of the Crimson Tide's last five home games.
