2021 TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Texas A&M Aggies vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons Betting Information

Texas A&M showed more College football betting progress than not.  Further, A&M overcame obstacles en route to a season of promise. Yet the Aggies season was far from perfect and revealed weaknesses that need to be addressed.  Of course, the highlight of the year was an upset home win over Alabama.  That win over the Crimson Tide was symbolic of the Aggies season.  To illuminate, Texas A&M suffered two embarrassing losses in the games before the Alabama matchup.  Arkansas defeated the Aggies 20-10, followed by an epic 26-22 upset by visiting Mississippi State.

Last game, Texas A&M lost at LSU 27-24 as a 6-point favorite.  Also, the game went over the bet on NCAAF total of 46.5.  As a result, the Aggies have a record of 8-4 straight up, 7-5 against the spread, and 5-7 over/under.  Overall, Texas A&M has NCAAF ranks 74th for total offense and 61st for scoring offense.  While defensively, the Aggies have CFB ranks 20th overall and 4th for points allowed.

A string of clutch completions by Max Johnson in little more than a minute capped coach Ed Orgeron’s LSU career with a sensational comeback win. To show, Johnson hit Jaray Jenkins with a 28-yard scoring pass down the right sideline with 20 seconds left.  Thus, LSU knocked off 1th 14th ranked Aggies.

Jimbo Fisher got a massive raise and extension from Texas A&M this season.  Due to it being a preemptive strike against the coaching carousel season.  Originally, Texas A&M was worried about LSU trying to come after Fisher.  Instead, Florida and USC are competing with LSU as the top three jobs in America.  And there could be other firings still to come.  And when top-tier positions open, that will open other jobs because of coaches moving on.  Thus, A&M was far ahead of the curve.

Certainly, Texas A&M has treated Fisher better than any coach in the land.  The Aggies want for nothing when it comes to facilities, financial support, and recruiting.  It is said that Texas A&M prints cash, and that has been verified in the 2021 campaign.

Recruiting is considered the lifeblood of a college football program.  Especially in the SEC.  And that is where Fisher takes full advantage of the Texas A&M resources.  Fisher gets whatever he asks for and is a relentless salesman for the program.  As a result, the Aggies consistently rank in the top five of the national recruiting rankings.
