Alabama vs Texas A&M Prediction
The current betting odds have Texas A&M listed as a 2 point underdog in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Texas A&M has quietly been having a great season with their 22-8 record overall and they are the 2nd best team in the SEC this year with their 14-3 conference record despite not having a lot of hype surrounding this team. They have also been a really good home team this year with a 14-1 home record and they have some momentum off a win in their last game. Alabama has also been having a great season with their 26-4 record overall and they enter this game ranked as one of the best teams in the country too. They have been the best team in the SEC all year with their 16-1 conference record and they have even been good in their road games with a 9-2 road record. Alabama is also undefeated at home though which means all 4 of their losses this year have come either on the road or at a neutral site and they haven't been great in their games lately either. They have won 4 games in a row now but their last few games have been coming down to the wire where they had to make comebacks late and they will not be able to sustain that kind of play and win against a great home team like Texas A&M. The best way to place a bet here is on Texas A&M to cover the spread in this game as they have some real upset win potential here.

“Listen, I just couldn’t be more proud of this group. Obviously, it’s a heartbreaking situation. That’s never lost on us, but the kids have worked really hard. Winning the SEC is not an easy thing to do. I mean, look at the teams in this league. It’s a great league." - Nate Oats after his team’s win against Auburn in their last game.
“There weren’t enough quality possessions. If you’re only going to shoot 43 balls because you turn it over 16 times, and you only get eight offensive rebounds, you’re going to play from behind.” - Buzz Williams on his team being at their best with the NCAA Tournament approaching.
