Why Texas A&M is a good bet?

The last time Texas A&M faced a College Football Playoff contender, they almost pulled off the money line upset. A&M lost by 2 points, 26-28, to Dabo Sweeney coached Clemson on Sep. 12. That’s the game that should give Texas A&M confidence heading into Tuscaloosa. In that game, the Aggies shut down Clemson’s rushing attack. Although the Tigers rushed for 115 yards, they only averaged 3.6 yards per rush. If A&M can shut down Bama’s rushing attack they should have a shot to keep it close.

Why Alabama is a good bet?

Are the Crimson Tide a safe bet for NCAA Football Week 4? The Crimson Tide averages over 50 points per game. Traditionally, Alabama uses the rushing attack to set up the passing attack. That hasn’t been the case this season because Bama has a couple of solid quarterbacks in Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts. Not that Bama can’t rush the football. The Crimson Tide averages around 250 rushing yards per game. That’s on top of their over 300 passing yards per game. Simply put, Texas A&M can’t hang with one of the top offenses in the nation.

Texas A&M at Alabama Betting Pick & Analysis:

It’s hard to look past how well Texas A&M played in their 2 points loss to Clemson. The Aggies almost pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the year and it was only Week 2. But, even though Texas A&M looked great against Clemson, they face an uphill battle to keep it close versus Alabama. The Crimson Tide have this year’s Heisman Trophy winner in quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Tagovailoa averages a TD pass every 6 to 7 throws. That’s amazing. Not only that, but if Tua needs a break, Saban just puts in Jalen Hurts. Alabama’s defense looks just as good this season as it was last season. Bama should roll over A&M on Saturday.
