New Mexico St. vs. Texas A&M Prediction

College Football Week 9 Predictions: New Mexico State vs. Texas A&M 10/29/16

Should No. 9 Texas A&M have any trouble when it welcomes New Mexico State to town tonight at 7:30PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Texas A&M is an overwhelming favorite to win this game, as the Aggies are getting odds of -43.5 points against New Mexico State. The over/under total for the game is listed at 71 points. These two have no recent meetings to consider.

Bet on New Mexico State vs. Texas A&M

A&M suffered its first loss of the season last week, losing at Alabama 33-14. The Aggies are now 6-1 on the season and 4-3 against the spread, though they have failed to cover in three straight games. A&M is an offense to be feared, as the Aggies are averaging 36.4 points and 496.4 yards per game this season. They have a very balanced attack, averaging nearly 250 yards per game on the ground and in the air. Trevor Knight has been a dual-threat option, as he has thrown for 1,664 yards and 11 touchdowns while running for 526 yards and nine scores. Trayveon Williams has added 727 rushing yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, A&M is giving up 439.4 yards per game, but holding opponents to just 21.1 points per contest.

New Mexico State fell to 2-5 on the season last week with a 22-19 loss to Georgia Southern at home. The Aggies are now 4-3 against the spread on the season, but are just 1-3 ATS on the road. State is giving up 41.6 points and 503.6 yards per game. They really have struggled against the run, allowing 245.6 yards per contest. When it comes to offense, the Aggies are averaging 25.9 points and 433.7 yards per game. Quarterback Tyler Rogers is leading the offense with 1,994 passing yards and 11 touchdowns, but he also has 10 interceptions.

It is possible that Texas A&M could find itself looking past New Mexico State, but with A&M coming off a big loss last week to Alabama, where it was outgained 451-278, I expect A&M to come out motivated. A&M should be able to limit what New Mexico State does on offense, so it comes down to them being able to put up enough points to make the cover happen. I think A&M can do it.
