Aggies host Clemson in Primetime NCAA Football Betting Showdown

Clemson Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies

Commencing with last week both Clemson and Texas A&M feasted on cupcakes.  To be exact both teams played 1AA teams for easy home wins.  Accordingly, Saturday night’s matchup at College Station serves as their first “real” game.  Clemson is picked to contend for the national title.  Counter to that is rebuilding Texas A&M.  Jimbo Fisher arrives after winning a national title at Florida State.  But the Aggies will be NCAA Football Betting home underdogs for this one.   More emphatically Clemson is a much more established power program.  It follows that Fisher was hired to gain A&M such status.

A Matter of Development

A clear difference between Texas A&M and Clemson is development.  Dabo Swinney has the Clemson program fully built to reload for championship runs.  Conversely Fisher inherits one of college football’s ultimate “wannabe” programs.  In other words, Texas A&M believes they should be a top shelf blue blood.  However, the NCAA Football Betting record shows perpetual frustration for Aggie fans.  Despite full investment and tremendous support, they have yet to see a payoff.  Extending the frustration was Johnny Manziel.  “Johnny Football” turned out to be a flash in the pan instead of sustained excellence.

Clemson Tigers

Clemson began the season ranked second in the country.  Along the same lines they destroyed 1AA Furman 48-7 last week.  Trevor Lawrence threw for 137 yards and three touchdowns.  Also, for Clemson Kelly Bryant was 10-16 passing for 127 yards and a score.  While it is hard to get much of a read against such an opponent the Tigers did what they were supposed to do.

Texas A&M Aggies

So too did Texas A&M perform as expected.  To show the Aggies decimated Northwestern State 59-7 in Fisher’s debut.  Kellen Mond threw for 184 yards and two touchdowns in the win.  Jace Sternberger caught two touchdown passes.  But the Big Man on Campus was Trayveon Williams.  Indeed, the Aggies running back had 240 yards and 12 carries with three touchdowns.  More emphatically Texas A&M stomped to 758 total yards.  Consider the opposition and its hard to get too excited just yet.

Team vs. Team

Clemson has covered three of their last five online wagering road matchups.  Further, three of their last four away games went under the total.  Additionally, the Tigers have paid in five of their last nine as road chalks.  Contrarily is Texas A&M’s horrible marks at home vs. the line.  To be exact the Aggies have covered just five of their last 19 at Kyle Field.  Six of their last 10 home games went under the number.  Most of all A&M has gotten the cash in only one of their last six as home pups.

Matchup to Watch

Granted, this NCAA Football Betting matchup is compelling.  For one thing there will be a tremendous and large Aggie crowd.  In the same way A&M is a capable team.  Balanced against that is Clemson’s depth and overall level.  As was mentioned earlier Texas A&M is not a good betting value at Kyle Field.
