Bet Texas A&M to Cover Spread vs Ole Miss

Sometimes the NCAA basketball lines make it easy to make a pick, and the second-round matchup in the SEC tournament between Texas A&M and Ole Miss on Thursday is one of those. The seventh-seeded Aggies (18-13) come into this one on a three-game winning streak, including a 26-point road win over the Rebels in the teams’ regular-season finale on Saturday, so they’re an easy favorite to choose in this one.

Tenth-seeded Ole Miss (20-11) does have the better overall record, but it has stumbled in conference play and comes into the SEC tournament having dropped eight of its last 10 contests. Texas A&M is right on the bubble for NCAA Tournament inclusion, so it has a lot of motivation to come out with a big effort in this one, which is why it is one of the easier NCAAB picks to make on Thursday.

Ole Miss vs Texas A&M Over/Under Pick: Over 140½

While the Rebels’ offense has sputtered a bit over the last couple of games, averaging 63 points in two losses, the Aggies seem to be rolling, including putting up 86 points in their win over Ole Miss on Saturday. Texas A&M needs to make a big impression for the NCAA Tournament committee, so it will be turning on the jets even if it’s winning comfortably in the second half.

Junior guard Wade Taylor IV is the leader of the Texas A&M offense, averaging 18.0 points and 4.1 assists, but he’s upped those numbers to 24.5 points and 5.0 assists in two games against Ole Miss. Taylor and his teammates should keep their offensive roll going in this one, so bet online on the over.

 

Ole Miss vs Texas A&M ATS Pick: Texas A&M -4½

The NCAA basketball lines are giving the Rebels some respect in this one, considering how dominant the Aggies were against them just a few days ago. Ole Miss should give a better effort, but it won’t be enough to win or even cover the spread in this contest. Texas A&M just has too much motivation to pick up a big win.

If Ole Miss is going to make this a game, senior guard Matthew Murrell must play better. He’s averaged just 10.0 points in two matchups with the Aggies, more than six points under his season scoring average.

 

Ole Miss vs Texas A&M Team Prop Pick: Race to 20 Points Texas A&M (-173)

Texas A&M is playing with a lot of confidence right now, especially after the rout of the Rebels in their last game. They’ll be fired up to possibly solidify their NCAA case with a big win in this one, so look for the Aggies to come out firing from the opening tip. We like them to try to overwhelm the Rebels early, opening up a quick lead and cruising to the win, so make sure your college basketball picks include a wager on this prop bet.
