Our Selection : Sure the Aggies have won 3 straight and 5 of 6 this season but putting money into their backers pockets hasn’t been A&M’s strength in their 5 victories going 2-3 against the number and have not covered the spread in their last two.
The more me look at this game the more we see value in putting our money on Auburn. Both teams are 5-1 with a loss to top 6 team. Both teams beat Mississippi with the Tigers having the larger margin (8-3). The one thing that really stands out to us is the competition that Mr. Football and his gang has faced. Admittedly it is subjective, but additional wins over Rice, Sam Houston State, SMU and Arkansas is certainly not world beaters and we would suggest that the Tigers have had a tougher schedule. Our numbers have the Aggies as a 4-point favorite which gives us a ton of value on Auburn getting double digits. Take the Auburn Tigers + 13 points at Bovada and get up to a 50% Bonus.
