Betting on the Texas A&M Aggies (+3.5)

250x130-250FREE-6-16-16

Merciless. That was what the Aggies were last week, when they mopped the floor using the Prairie View Panthers in a 67-0 win in College Station. Texas A&M now makes its first trip away from home when the Aggies battle Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Quarterback Trevor Knight had his way slicing through the Panthers’ defense, as he passed for 344 yards and three touchdowns with an interception on 21 of 37      completions. A dual-threat quarterback, Knight also rushed for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers game. While he’s unlikely to torch Auburn with the same numbers, Knight is still the man to watch for Texas A&M. The Aggies have a well-distributed offense, one that averages 239.0 passing yards per game 240 rushing yards each contest thus far on the season.

Other than their offense, the Aggies will have their secondary unit to rely on in their mission to upset the Tigers on the road. Texas A&M has 11 interceptions already this season, which includes the four the Aggies had off Josh Rosen in their 31-24 win in the season opener.

Texas A&M is 2-0 SU and ATS in its last two trips to Auburn dating back to 2012.

Betting on the Auburn Tigers (-3.5)

Beating Arkansas State on Saturday, 51-14, certainly was a nice way for the Tigers to pick up the pieces following their 19-13 season opening loss to Clemson earlier this month. They could make it two in a row later this week against the Aggies, whom Auburn defeated last year, 26-10.

The loss to Clemson offered at least one positive for Auburn, though, as it showed how capable its defense was, limiting Dabo Swinney’s team to its fewest points since 2014.

That said, the Tigers will have to watch out for Texas A&M’s big play attempts. Auburn has let opponents collect 10 20 yard or more plays this season.

Auburn razed Arkansas State’s defense for 706 total yards though having that much success against an overmatched and out-of-you-league opponent is not a good indicator of what’s to come. In any case, 706 total yards is 706 total yards, meaning there’s some pop in Auburn’s attack that could surprise the Aggies. Sean White is now the definitive starting quarterback for Auburn and he’ll get help from the likes of Tony Stevens and Kyle Davis, who combined for 117 receiving yards and two touchdowns against Arkansas State.

Writer’s Prediction

Auburn wins, 37-33.
