Texas A&M Hosts Florida on Saturday, October 10 for SEC Betting Showdown

Florida Gators vs. Texas A&M - College Football betting predictions, odds and picks

Florida’s College football betting win over South Carolina was highly impressive. Consider the Gators jumped out a 38-14 lead. Gamblers seemed to have cash in hand. But the Gamecocks snuck through the back door to cover. Florida won 38-25 as 14.5-point home chalks. The half-point back door cover was a deep wound for Gator backers. Especially with such a dominant performance. Texas A&M Aggies haven’t paid after two games of action. Of major concern is the Aggies haven’t shown well. Coach Jimbo Fisher was given a $75 million guaranteed contract. Fisher’s program is regressing.

Florida Gators vs.Texas A&M Aggies CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, Texas A&M makes for a difficult sportsbook sell. Gamblers pegged the Aggies to be 2020 contenders. In view of their struggles, the public is fleeing them. This could serve to enhance A&M’s value.

Gators Share SEC East Lead

Last week Florida beat South Carolina 38-24 as 14.5-point home chalks. Sloppy fourth-quarter play blew the cover. Senior quarterback Kyle Trask was 21 of 29 for 268 yards and four touchdowns. But Trask had a first-half fumble and fourth-quarter interception to prevent the payout.

Florida is 2-0 straight up, 1-1 against the spread, and 2-0 over the total. Offensively they rank 13th overall, seventh for passing, 49th for rushing, fourth for scoring, and 20th for turnovers. By contrast, defensively Florida ranks 65th overall, 68th against the pass, 37th against the rush, 43rd for points allowed, and 52nd for takeaways.

Of great concern for betting on college football is Florida’s defense. South Carolina is a weak offensive program. But the Gators failed to apply the clamps at the game’s end. South Carolina had almost equal yardage to Florida.

On the whole, Trask has a strong 196.4 rating through two games with a 10 to 1 touchdown to interception ratio. Trask is averaging 9.6 yards per pass and has completed 72% of his passes.

Aggies Going Nowhere Fast

Texas A&M is coming off a 52-24 loss at Alabama. A&M were 18-point dogs with the game going over 54.5. Overall Alabama outgained the Aggies 544 to 450 in total yards. Texas A&M committed two turnovers. In Fisher’s third season they are nowhere near ready to compete with the best of the SEC.

Now Texas A&M is 1-1 straight up, 0-2 against the spread, and 1-1 on totals. A&M has offensive rankings of 40th overall, 30th for passing, 44th for rushing, 60th for scoring, and 67th for turnovers. Defensively Texas A&M ranks 38th overall, 58th against the pass, 22nd against the rush, 55th for points allowed, and 30th for takeaways.

Florida Gators at Texas A&M Aggies Against the Spread

Florida is 7-1-1 against the spread on the road. And then they are 8-2 over the total away from home. Florida is 6-1-1 on the board in SEC away games. Seven of their last nine in that situation went over the bet on NCAAF total.

Specifically, at home Texas A&M is 11-1 against the spread. A&M is 5-3-1 over the total at Kyle Field. In home SEC games did the Aggies cover just five of 18. Only eight of their last 20 in that role went over the total.

Texas A&M won and covered their last meeting with Georgia. So too did the game go under the total. Florida got the cash in their last visit to College Station. Under the total paid as well.

In this situation, Texas A&M makes for a solid contrarian betting on NCAAF pick. Florida will be a trendy choice with squares. Counter to that is an Aggies team that may sneak up on the doubting masses.
