Auburn Tigers

Despite their success on the hardwood Auburn has been failing to get the money.  The Tigers have covered the spread in just two of their last eight games.  Overall Auburn’s record is 12-3 straight up, 7-6-1 vs. the odds. And 7-7 on totals.  Much of this loss in value is due to increased public betting attention.  In the same way head coach Bruce Pearl continues to build a more complete program.  As an example, Auburn ranks 20th in college basketball for scoring offense and 64th for points allowed.  Bryce Brown and Jared Harper are averaging over 15 points per game.

Stats to Consider

On the road Auburn has been dropping in value with betting lines NCAA basketball.  For example, the Tigers have lost five of their last six on the board in away matchups.  Seven of their last 10 road tilts went under the total.  However, Texas A&M has been a terrible value on their home court.  The Aggies have covered just two of their last ten games at Reed Arena.  And five of their last six home matchups went under the total.

Team vs. Team

Texas A&M has had a stranglehold on this head to head online wagering series.  In fact, the Aggies have paid in eight of their last ten with War Eagle.  Four of the last five between these teams have gone under the total.  And at Reed Arena Texas A&M covered the last two against Auburn.  Both games went under the total.

Matchup to Watch

On the whole Texas A&M has far more depth and balance in this matchup.  Pearl’s team is far more dynamic than the struggling Aggies.  Texas A&M’s offense is a betting lines NCAA basketball matchup liability.  For this purpose, Auburn is the more appealing choice.
