Texas A&M has won three games in a row, including a 51-41 victory over the Mississippi State Bulldogs as 19.5-point home favorites on Nov. 9, while going OVER the betting total for the fifth time in six contests. The Aggies will be playing their first game away from Kyle Field in more than a month, as they seek a school-record 11th straight road victory, which is important to consider when making your college football predictions in Week 13. Texas A&M is 1-4 SU and 2-3 ATS as underdogs the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 4-1 in that situation.
The Aggies have scored 40 or more points in 13 consecutive games, which is the longest such streak of its kind nationally. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel needs 76 total yards to reach 4,000 for a second straight season, while the offense has scored 29 touchdowns on the ground and 34 through the air. The team has scored first in 22 of 23 games under second-year head coach Kevin Sumlin, while it has outscored opponents by a 291-106 margin in the first quarter over that span.
LSU has alternated wins and losses over its last four games, as it attempts to bounce back from a 38-17 setback to the Alabama Crimson Tide as 14-point road underdogs on Nov. 9, while going OVER the betting total in two consecutive contests. The Tigers are 22-1 SU under head coach Les Miles when coming off a loss, which is important to consider when looking over the college football odds page. Quarterback Zach Mettenberger has compiled a 17-6 record during his time on campus as a starter, while becoming the first player in school history to throw for 2,500 or more yards in back-to-back seasons. LSU is 6-2 SUATS as favorites of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 5-3 in those eight opportunities.
The Tigers will try to pound the Aggies on the ground, with running back Jeremy Hill being just 36 yards away from becoming the school’s first 1,000-yard rusher in a season since 2010. LSU owns a 5-3 record under Miles following an open date, but Saturday’s foe is also playing with a week of rest.
Sports bettors will likely back the Aggies due to their 11-5 ATS mark in their last 16 November games.
