Ole Miss vs Texas A&M Prediction, Game Preview, Live Stream, Odds & Picks

The Texas A&M Aggies are paying coach Jimbo Fisher close to $100 million. However, most who bet online would say that they’re not getting what they paid for in College Station, Texas.

A win this week would inject some much-needed optimism into the program. The challenge is that the Ole Miss Rebels just lost their first game.

They’re a quality team and are favored, according to the college football odds. Which squad is the best bet in this spot?

Let’s check the latest college football odds, stats, injury reports and college football lines for Ole Miss vs Texas A&M. We’ve plenty of NCAA football odds for you to consider.

Ole Miss Rebels

The Rebels busted out to a quick 17-3 lead over the LSU Tigers last week, but then they were stomped over the final 2 1/2 quarters, giving up 42 of the game’s final 45 points in a lopsided loss.

Jaxson Dart is a talented quarterback for Ole Miss, but he makes mistakes. The sophomore made critical errors midway through the game, which enabled LSU to develop runaway momentum.

Dart is still learning how to play the position and the challenge for head coach Lane Kiffin is to know how much freedom to give him.

On one hand, he wants to allow just enough to show his athleticism in ways that create positive plays, while still cultivating a degree of discipline and football IQ which will enable Ole Miss to avoid turnovers.

Striking this balance will be a core challenge in this A&M game and for the rest of the season with the Ole Miss offense. Avoid the turnovers and mistakes, and Ole Miss probably wins this game and covers for college football picks.

Texas A&M Aggies

Starting quarterback Haynes King was hurt against South Carolina, causing backup Conner Weigman, a five-star recruit, to replace him.

Weigman completed 8 of 15 passes, but they were all short throws. Texas A&M’s offense is likely to be limited in this game against Ole Miss. The defense will have to do the heavy lifting.

The Aggies have been struggling in all phases of the game as evidenced versus the Gamecocks. The Aggies allowed a 100-yard kick return in their loss to South Carolina and a flood of early game mistakes allowed the Gamecocks a lot of easy points.

Given Texas A&M’s limitations at quarterback and on offense, the Aggies simply can’t make basic errors on special teams and expect to win. The margin of error is small for the Aggies.

Ole Miss vs Texas A&M Prediction

The Aggies are limited at quarterback with Weigman. It’s true that he is a five-star recruit, but it’s obvious that he was not ready to perform at a high level.

Taking any sort of risks by throwing the ball downfield seem to be out of play for him. The A&M defense can limit Dart and the Ole Miss offense, but merely holding Ole Miss to a low point total might not be enough.

The Aggies might need to get points off turnovers to win. The best play on this game is the under in the sportsbook. Neither offense figures to dominate. Last year’s game had 48 points, and this year’s game figures to have even fewer points.
