Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss Prediction
Are the Ole Miss Rebels a good bet to cover the small spread as a home underdog tonight against the Texas A&M Aggies? Kickoff for tonight's game is set for 7:00 p.m. ET.
ODDSMAKERS LIKE: Texas A&M. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Aggies are now 2.5-point road favorites after the Rebels opened as a 2.5-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 69.5 but was bet down to 68.
THE PUBLIC LIKES: As of Saturday afternoon, just under 60% of betting tickets are on A&M to cover the spread.
HISTORICAL TRENDS LIKE: The underdog and Ole Miss. The under has cashed in four of the last five meetings between these two teams while the underdog has cashed in four of the last five meetings. The Aggies are also winless at 0-5 against the spread in their last five games versus the Rebels.
WHO WE LIKE: Ole Miss. The Aggies are just 5-11-1 against the spread in their last 17 games played on grass, are 3-8-1 against the number in their last 12 conference games, and have failed to cover in 14 of their last 17 games played in November.
Texas A&M is also just 1-5 against the spread in its last six games after allowing less than 275 total yards in it s previous game. The Aggies have failed to cover in five of their last six games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game as well.
I do worry about Ole Miss' defense coming up with enough stops to produce a cover but I love what Jordan Ta'aamu brings to the table for a Rebels team that has played hard of late.
