South Carolina vs Texas A&M Prediction: Spread
With a large spread like this, most people tend to struggle towards picking. This is not like picking an outright winner which is a lot easier. So far this season the Gamecocks are 3-3-1 ATS while the Aggies are 4-3 ATS. The spread currently favours the Aggies by 20.5 points.

Texas A&M have scored 30+ points four times this season however they haven’t been able to steal games by wide margins. The Aggies have been in more than three games that have been within one possession. South Carolina has been blown out only two times (vs Georgia and vs Tennessee). While Texas A&M is a better team, this spread is too large for them to cover.

South Carolina vs Texas A&M Prediction: MoneyLine
There is no question on who the moneyline should go for. While being conservative towards the spreads seems logical, it seems improbable that South Carolina can pull off an upset. Their roster simply isn’t built to the caliber of the Aggies. Currently, TAMU is listed at -2750 to beat SC.
This isn’t March Madness so there is no use in analyzing this improbable upset. Texas A&M is on a two-game win streak including upsetting the once number one seed Alabama. There is no matchup that favors the Gamecocks so there is no reason to believe they can win this game.
- Free Prediction: Texas A&M -2750
South Carolina vs Texas A&M Prediction: Total
These teams have failed to run away with games. Assuming that the Aggies are unable to come up with the spread, they will not be able to total over 45.5 points. This game will be closer than many people are willing to admit. Texas A&M will not be able to run up the score and therefore will not hit the over!
- Free Prediction: U 45.5
