Bet on LSU -5.5 Because…
LSU has beaten Texas A&M in five straight games.
LSU is coming off a rough 16-10 loss to the Florida Gators where they outgained them 423 yards to 270, and they are looking for some redemption. The Tigers will barrel the yards on this Aggies’ team that lacks discipline on defense. Texas A&M is giving up 35.1 points and 467.7 total yards on average per game, and that just doesn’t work when you are trying to win football games.
The LSU defense is the main asset of the team, and they have only allowed 2 teams to score 20 points this year. They are stingy against opposing offenses in the air and especially on the ground only allowing 115.2 yards rushing per game. They keep opponents to under 200 yards passing per game and are barely out of the Top 10 in overall defense ranking No. 11.
Bet on Texas A&M +5.5 Because…
This team bombs the ball and runs the ball on opponents in a fairly balanced offense ranked No. 31 overall in the FBS. By concentrating more on the passing game, they should be able to take advantage of the weaker part of the strong LSU defense.
The Aggies play better at home relative to the College Football betting spread putting up a 4-2 record against the spread at Kyle Field, so you can expect this to be a close game within a field goal when the gravy is all cleared!
LSU Vs Texas A&M Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Last year LSU beat Texas A&M 19-7 and beat them in 2014 23-17, so these games are tough and low scoring in the past and will be in the present this week. The offenses have the potential to put up points, but LSU Tigers have a monster Defense that will dictate how this game goes.
I see this as a cat and mouse game that getting over 4 points makes it a definite Thanksgiving college bet on the home dog, the Texas A&M Aggies. This game gives you a 2nd play that I would parlay in a 2 teamer.
I am giving you an extra nugget on these Thanksgiving Football bets because the UNDER on this game is the play also. LSU going under the total is 10-1-2 on grass their last 13 games, and Texas A&M Aggies are 11-2-1 going under the total in the last 14 games they played on grass.
