Texas A&M Aggies vs. Missouri Tigers

The #12 Missouri Tigers visit the # 13 Texas A&M Aggies in an important Big 12 match-up.   Texas A&M is listed as a 5-point home favorite with the total set at 139.

Texas A&M has a 15-1 record this year.  They are 6-1 against the spread.  Missouri in 15-2 this year but only has a 5-7 record against the spread.  Texas A&M early season success has been a surprise to most as they were not ranked in the preseason top-25.  It is a surprise due to the fact that three of their top players graduated last season.  The Texas A&M Aggies has gotten increased production from Kris Middleton who average 7.2 points per game last year, this year that number has increased to 15 points per game

Texas A&M has won twelve straight games.  They won their last game on Wednesday night 71-48 over Oklahoma St.  The Aggies are 2-0 in conference play and also 2-0 against the spread.  The Aggies are a very strong defensive team, only giving up more than 65 points once this season.  Additionally, they are 10-0 at home this year.

The Missouri Tigers are the nations fifth-highest scoring team at 85.2 points per game and lead the Big 12 in that category.  They also lead the Big 12 in three-point percentage at 38.2 percent.  Missouri has five players that all average double figures in scoring.  In their last game they beat Nebraska 77-69 at home.  They failed to cover in that game as an 11-pont favorite.

Missouri has not beaten Texas A&M in several years losing their past six games to the Aggies.  The Aggies have also covered in nine straight games against the Missouri Tigers.  Today, I believe that all changes.  I will take the Missouri Tigers to win due to the fact that they are the more explosive team.  If they are hitting their jump shots they can beat most teams in the NCAA.  I feel like Missouris guard will be able to expose the Texas A&M lack of depth at that position.  I will also take the der.  I believe the final score to be something like Missouri 73 and Texas A&M 67. The two plays for this game are Missouri with the points and the under of 150.


Missouri +5 Texas A&M
