Auburn vs Texas A&M Prediction & Pick

Texas A&M's record is not bad at 13-6 overall, but it's worth noting this is a team that has already lost to Murray State and Wofford. The Aggies faced their first true SEC test on Saturday and racked up 16 turnovers in a loss. They rank tied for 189th in the country with 12.9 turnovers per game this year.

Auburn has had a few questionable losses on their schedule, too, but head coach Bruce Pearl's team has the defense to bet any team in the country. The Tigers rank 10th in defensive efficiency and allow only 62.6 points per game (No. 22 in NCAA). That will make all the difference on Wednesday night.

Auburn is riding a 10-game winning streak at Neville Arena, so rock with the Tigers in this one.

Final Score Prediction: Auburn: 73 | Texas A&M: 65

Auburn vs Texas A&M Best Bet

Auburn's average scoring margin during its five-game winning streak checks in at +12.2 and it is 4-1 against the spread (ATS) during that span. The Tigers' average scoring margin at home this season also checks in at +12.8, which shows that they have been pulling away in the second half of games.

I expect more of the same on Wednesday. Auburn allows only 32.5 second half points per game at home, while Texas A&M allows 42.1 second half points per game on the road. This is the time of the year in which the Tigers start to truly shine as they are 17-3 ATS in their last 20 games in January.

Bet: Auburn Tigers -4.5 (-110)
