Record: 19-10 Overall/9-7 Conference

The Crimson Tide have won five of their last six games, though they’ve gone just 2-6 against the spread during that stretch. Alabama’s 3-point shooting came up big in its 90-71 home win against the South Carolina Gamecocks last Saturday, as the team went 13/33 from deep. Alabama is connecting on just 31.2 percent of their threes attempted this season, but the team is all about volume when it comes to outside shooting, which is also why the Crimson Tide are 22nd in the nation with 9.3 3-pointers made per contest. Texas A&M isn’t among the best in perimeter defense in the SEC, so Alabama should be able to find plenty of chances to launch their threes in this game. The Crimson Tide. Jaden Shackelford, Jahvon Quinerly, and Keon Ellis will all be ready to pounce on any holes in the Aggies’ defense.
The Over is 3-1 in Alabama’s last four games overall.
Alabama wins, 80-71.
