Week 13 of the 2022 college football season includes an SEC battle between the No. 6 LSU Tigers and Texas A&M Aggies. LSU kept its momentum building in a 41-10 win over UAB on Saturday. Quarterback Jayden Daniels logged 297 passing yards, 111 rushing yards, and 2 total touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Texas A&M leaned on its defense to secure a 20-3 win over UMass in Week 12. The Aggies allowed just 2.5 yards per play and saw senior Malick Sylla tally his first sack of the season. Running back Le'Veon Moss paced the offense with 78 rushing yards and 1 touchdown on 12 carries.

LSU vs Texas A&M Prediction & Pick

LSU has already clinched a spot in the SEC championship game, but this is far from a meaningless game. A win on Saturday and a conference title would all but guarantee the Tigers secure a spot in the College Football Playoff. Don't expect head coach Brian Kelly to let his foot off the gas in this one.

Texas A&M's defense in no joke, but it hasn't faced an offense on LSU's level since the end of October. The Tigers are averaging 30.2 points on 426.7 yards per game in 2022. They are also converting third downs at a 48.9% rate. That ranks as the third-best mark in the SEC and 12th-best mark in the nation.

LSU is 9-2 straight up in its last 11 games against Texas A&M, so I'll back the Tigers on the road.

Final Score Prediction: LSU: 35 | Texas A&M: 20

LSU vs Texas A&M Betting Trends

- LSU is 9-2 straight up in its last 11 games against Texas A&M.
- The total has hit the over in four of LSU's last five games.
- Texas A&M is 0-4-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games.
- The total has hit the over in four of Texas A&M's last six games against LSU.

LSU vs Texas A&M Best Bet

Conference games always have a chance of coming down to the wire, so shifting gears to the point total is a smart move here. LSU has scored at least 32 points in four of its last five games, while Texas A&M has scored at least 20 points in seven of its last eight games. A point total set at 46.5 seems low.

Keep in mind the total has hit the over in four of the Tigers' last five games and in five of the Aggies' last seven games as an underdog. The over has also cashed in four of the last six head-to-head meetings between these SEC foes. Bettors can feel comfortable trusting the trends on Saturday.

Bet: Over 46.5 Points (-110)
