Over/Under Pick: Under 134 (-110)

These teams combined for 136 points when they squared off on December 16. With this being an elimination game, we expect things to be tighter in the rematch.

Take the under at the sportsbook.



ATS Pick: Texas A&M +10 (-110)

The Aggies lost by four points when these teams met in December. Texas A&M needed a second-half comeback to make it that close.

I still expect a relatively close contest for part two. Texas A&M is not going to be intimidated by Houston after playing a hard SEC schedule.

Bet online the Aggies to cover +10.



Player Prop Pick: Wade Taylor IV Over 17.5 Points (-106)

It may seem crazy to take the over with a player facing Houston’s defense. Yet, we know Texas A&M guard Wade Taylor IV has already had success against the Cougars.

Taylor dropped 34 points in the Aggies’ first matchup against Houston. The guard is also riding a heater into this matchup scoring 20 or more points in four straight games.

Taylor had 25 points against Nebraska in the team’s first-round matchup. Take the over on Taylor’s points prop bet versus Houston.
