Texas A&M vs South Carolina Prediction & Pick
This is the fourth straight game away from Kyle Field for the Aggies and the road woes were front and center against both Mississippi State an Alabama. However, this is the perfect SEC matchup to get back on track. After all, Texas A&M is 8-0 straight up in its last eight clashes against South Carolina.
The Gamecocks inability to play clean football is going to make a huge difference in the outcome of this game. They have turned the ball over at least twice in every game this season and setting the opponent up in good field position is never a good idea. The Aggies kick a late field goal to win here.
Final Score Prediction: Texas A&M: 23 | South Carolina: 20

Texas A&M vs South Carolina Best Bet

Yes, 44.5 points is a rather low total for a college football game. It's low for a reason, though. Texas A&M plays a style of football that leads to low-scoring, defensive battles. The Aggies average only 19.6 points per game (No. 107 in FBS), but also only allow 22.6 points per game (No. 34 in FBS).
South Carolina relied on its rushing attack to get the job done against Kentucky and could easily ride that momentum into this game. That'll keep the clock moving. Overall, the under has hit in five of Texas A&M's last six games and the under has also hit in five of the last six games of this SEC rivalry.
Bet: Under 44.5 Points (-108)
