Why To Bet On Texas A&M

The sports betting calculus in this contest could certainly lean toward A&M if you take into account a few considerations. First of all, A&M just absorbed the best shot of a very talented and NCAA Tournament-bound opponent this past weekend and survived. The Aggies and coach Mark Turgeon were tested and pushed by Missouri in an overtime thriller. A&M trailed, 77-75, in the final seconds of regulation and then fell behind by an 87-86 score in the last minute of overtime against the Tigers. However, those deficits didn’t matter. The phenomenal play of Khris Middleton – who scored 28 points against Missouri, 11 of them in the extra period on a dazzling assortment of moves in the low post, on the perimeter, and in the open court – carried the Aggies to an exhilarating 91-89 win in one of the very best games of the still-young season. A&M is taking everyone’s best punch and is showing considerable staying power in the Big 12. Texas is going to be hard pressed to match the Aggies’ firepower at all five spots on the floor. The more A&M plays, the harder it is to deny this team’s credentials as a dangerous floater come March Madness.

Why To Bet On Texas

Super Bowl betting activity in this country will heat up in one week, but Texas basketball is heating up right now. A full 12 months ago, Texas spiraled downward in the middle of January, wasting a 17-0 start and a No. 1 national ranking before plummeting all the way to a No. 8 seed in the NCAA Tournament and getting bounced in the first round by Wake Forest. In mid-January of 2011, things are different for coach Rick Barnes and Company. Texas is 2-0 in the Big 12, one of only four unbeaten teams remaining in the league.

The Longhorns are playing unselfish basketball and are meshing on the court a lot better than they did last year. It’s ironic that Texas is playing better in the middle of its season; last year’s team had players with superstar-level talent, workhorses like Dexter Pittman and Damion James. However, it’s this year’s team that’s finding a way to play together and squeeze the most out of its available talent. Texas is allowing an average of just 49 points per game in Big 12 competition, and that level of defense is exactly what will enable the Longhorns to blunt A&M’s attack at home.

How The Game Will Play Out

These teams are evenly matched. A&M would probably win on a neutral floor (and definitely at home), but with this game coming relatively early in the conference season, and with A&M having just played an exhausting overtime game against Missouri on Saturday, the short turnaround – with only one full day of rest – is probably going to catch up with the Aggies. Take a fresher and more rested Texas team on its home floor.
