NCAA Football Betting Predictions & Free Pick: Texas A&M +13.5
I think I’m leaning slightly towards taking the points and rolling with the road underdog in this SEC clash, as the Aggies have really been playing well on both sides of the ball as of late. Not only has Texas A&M not lost since early October, the Aggies have also gone undefeated against the spread over the last month as well. Georgia has also been playing pretty well lately, although they have struggled a little bit at home against the spread this year. In fact, the Bulldogs have only covered the number in one out of their last five home games. That certainly doesn’t bode well for them here in Week 13, as Texas A&M is a perfect 2-0 ATS on the road so far this season.

It is also important to note that Georgia hasn’t exactly been blowing teams out of the water over the past month or so, as they have only won one game by more than ten points. The Aggies offense is hot right now as well, scoring 124 total points over just their last three games combined. While I will likely avoid this matchup entirely if the spread comes down by even half a point before kickoff on Saturday afternoon, I certainly don’t mind nabbing the points and taking a shot with Texas A&M with the way things sit right now. Give me the Aggies to cover!
