Texas vs Texas A&M Betting Odds - Longhorns to roll into Big 12 Championship

Posted by Tony Bryant on 11/25/2009 10:11:47 AM
football betting lineTexas vs Texas A&M betting odds renews a good rivalry but, as it has been for many years now, this game shouldn’t be close. The Longhorns could arguably be the BCS National Champion when everything is said and done, whereas the Aggies are lucky to be in a bowl game period. This is a mismatch and even at Kyle Field, the Longhorns should roll.

Texas vs Texas A&M betting odds: Texas -22
WHAT: NCAA football betting
WHEN: Thursday, November 26 - 8:00 p.m. ET
WHERE: Kyle Field – College Station, TX
PICK: Longhorns -22

Texas vs Texas A&M betting odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
The Longhorns (11-0, 7-0) are still perfect, and one more win gets them to the Big 12 Championship game, which will be the stepping stone to the BCS Championship game. They just finished the destruction of Kansas and at this point, it looks like there’s no stopping the Longhorns.

For A&M (6-5, 3-4), Mike Sherman hasn’t done enough to help this program rebound. They were mediocre when he got there and they still are. A win here would be the signature one he’s been looking for, but that seems highly unlikely.

Texas vs Texas A&M betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
Online betting cappers know that Colt McCoy is the winningest quarterback in college football history, and right now, few defenses can slow him down. The Longhorns don’t have a go-to running back but they seem to find a new one to produce each week. Complimented with the McCoy to Jordan Shipley combo, the Longhorns have plenty of firepower. Considering Oklahoma scored 65 on A&M with backups, the Longhorns starters could approach the 50-mark as well.

Texas A&M’s offense has been decent this year, but it’s also been inconsistent. Last week was a good week as the Aggies produced 375 yards on the ground, which was a season high for them.

Texas vs Texas A&M betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
While Alabama and Florida are getting most of the credit, the Longhorns defense is playing fantastic right about now. Believe it or not, the 20 points the Longhorns allowed in a blowout win over Kansas last week was their highest total in nine games (24 is the most allowed this year). This unit is humming and really making winning an easy task for the Longhorns.

Meanwhile, the A&M defense is struggling. When you look at their resume, they gave up 34 points to Colorado, 62 to Kansas State, 36 to Oklahoma State, 47 to Arkansas, 30 to Utah State, and 65 to Oklahoma. NCAA football betting fans know that isn’t a good sign as a very experienced Longhorns unit comes to visit.

Texas vs Texas A&M betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
Texas may be without cornerback Aaron Williams, who suffered an injury to his right leg. This won’t be a significant factor in the game but it does help out A&M slightly.

Texas vs Texas A&M betting odds breakdown: Outlook and Pick
The Longhorns played 18 freshmen last week, which gives you an indication that they’re really a team in transition. They might be more able to compete in the coming years, but right now, they’re just a decent team with a bad offense. Sportsbook odds makers have the Longhorns as a huge favorite and they should be able to cover that number.

TONY’S PICK: Texas -22
