Louisiana Monroe will step out of conference play for the final time this season, as it looks to snap a three-game losing streak, including a 22-18 setback to Texas State as three-point home favorites last week. The Warhawks are one of two FBS teams to have a non-conference schedule comprised completely of Power 5 Conference teams, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 10 college football predictions. Offensively, the team will be led by quarterback Pete Thomas, who completed 22 of 36 passes for 236 yards with one interception last time out. Louisiana Monroe is 6-10 SU and 8-8 ATS as underdogs the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 9-7 in that situation.
The Warhawks have forced at least one turnover in 32 of their last 33 games, which is important to consider when looking over the college football odds page, while their defense has tallied 26 sacks on the season. ULM has dropped both of its previous meetings against Texas A&M, including a 54-14 defeat as 22-point road underdogs on Sept. 15, 2007.
Texas A&M has suffered three consecutive losses, including a 59-0 setback to the Alabama Crimson Tide as 11-point road underdogs on Oct. 18, while going UNDER the betting total in three of its last four affairs. The Aggies haven’t lost four straight games since falling in defeat in their final four games of the 2005 campaign. It’s important to point out that the squad has outscored its opponents 89-24 in the fourth quarter this year, with the 65-point scoring advantage leading all FBS programs. Texas A&M is 6-0 SU and 4-2 ATS as favorites of 31 or more points the last two-plus seasons.
The Aggies are one of eight teams in the country that rank in the top 20 in passing, total and scoring offense, as they’ve done their best work in the red zone—scoring on 30-of-34 trips inside the red zone. Texas A&M is tied for 10th in scoring 41 touchdowns this season, with nine receivers hitting pay dirt, while five running backs have ended up in the end zone.
Sports bettors will likely back the Aggies due to the Warhawks being 0-6 ATS in their last six games.
