Bet on Texas A&M ATS at Home Against South Carolina in NCAA Football Predictions

Teams looking to get out of a rut clash when the South Carolina Gamecocks meet the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday. South Carolina are aiming to put an end to a three-game losing skid while the Aggies return from a bye looking to bounce back from losses to SEC heavyweights Alabama and Tennessee. Both are searching for a win, but College Football odds heavily favor the home team.

South Carolina Downed by Defense

The Gamecocks dropped their third consecutive game and continued to fall down the SEC ranks after another poor performance from their defense.

Although its offense nearly got it a win two weeks ago against Florida, scoring 39 points, South Carolina’s defense couldn’t hold off the Gators, allowing 41 points and 494 total yards to pick up another loss.

The Gamecocks have given up an average of 38.7 points and 463 total yards a game in their last three games, with their run defense proving to be an issue after allowing over 200 rushing yards in two of the three.

South Carolina is in need of a better defensive showing to turn things around, but bettors may want to see how its defense starts first against a solid A&M offense before looking at some College football live betting odds.

A&M Ready to Bounce Back

The Aggies will look to their defense to help them rebound.

Despite Tennessee averaging 438.1 total yards and 31.6 points a game, Texas A&M had a solid defensive showing, holding the Vols to 20 points and 332 total yards.

The Aggies’ second-ranked SEC passing defense has continued to be strong, as it has held opposing quarterbacks to 184.3 yards a game in their last three games while getting a pick-a-game in that time as well.

The A&M defense will need to remain strong against a South Carolina offense that relies on the pass, but with its recent play, it should be a solid NCAA football pick to do so.

South Carolina vs Texas Betting Odds

South Carolina vs Texas A&M Best Bet

Although both teams are looking to end current losing streaks, with the Aggies at home and boasting a stronger defense, the sportsbook has them heavily favored on the moneyline. Instead, bettors can find more value in betting the spread, where NCAA football lines favor A&M by 14 ½ points.

South Carolina has gotten most of its success in the passing game behind quarterback Spencer Rattler, but it is likely to have more issues scoring against an A&M passing defense allowing under 200 yards passing this season.

The game should also be an opportunity for the Aggies’ offense to bounce back after the bye, as the Gamecocks’ defense has been less than impressive. Though its run defense has struggled recently, South Carolina’s defense has had issues slowing passing teams as well, allowing 305 yards in the air this season. A&M should be able to find success scoring in either avenue to help cover the two-touchdown spread at home.

College Football Pick: Texas A&M Aggies -14½ (-110)
