LSU Opens as Shocking Road Underdogs Against Texas A&M in Early 2020 Odds for Week 13 Rivalry Matchup
By David Hayes
The Texas A&M Aggies have just one win over the LSU Tigers in their past nine meetings, but it looks like the oddsmakers believe that 2020 might be the the year that bucks this trend for Texas A&M.
Even with the 2020 college football offseason experiencing some unprecedented spring delays and cancellations, the odds and spreads around more than 100 of this fall's biggest matchups are now available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
LSU vs Texas A&M Spread 2020
Sitting months away from the 59th all-time meeting between these two football programs, Texas A&M has already opened as a surprising 1-point favorite over the defending national champion LSU at home in College Station for this Week 13 rivalry matchup in the 2020 college football season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
The LSU Tigers lost some heavy hitters to the 2020 NFL Draft, and there's really no way to sugar coat it. LSU accounted for five first-round picks in last week's draft alone, and three of those five talents came from the offensive side of the ball. Overall, LSU also finished tied for an NCAA-record 14 total NFL Draft selections from the same school.
The Aggies didn't lose anything close to what LSU did this April, and Texas A&M will be looking to rising senior QB and Heisman Trophy hopeful Kellen Mond for answers in 2020. A&M had one of the toughest schedules in the entire country last season, but Jimbo Fisher still led his team to an 8-5 record with a Texas Bowl win over then-No. 25 Oklahoma State.
There's still plenty of time for things to change between now and this 2020 showdown, but the Aggies remain early favorites for the time being. Barring any scheduling changes we may see, Texas A&M is currently set to host LSU at at Kyle Field on Saturday, Nov. 28, 2020.
