Auburn vs Texas A&M Prediction
The current betting odds have Auburn listed as a 7 point underdog in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Auburn has looked good in their 3 games this season as they pulled off a tough road win over Cal and destroyed their 2 weaker opponents at home. Now they are starting their conference schedule with their 1st game on the road against Texas A&M but the Aggies haven't looked that great in their games. Their 2 wins came in blowouts at home against bad teams but when they faced a better team in Miami-FL, they failed to answer the call with a big loss on the road. They are starting their conference schedule at home which does give them the advantage here to win this game but Auburn has a really good offense that will keep up with Texas A&M, especially since Texas A&M has had a really shaky defense against better offenses. Texas A&M will likely win this game at home but not by much and Auburn is still a live underdog to take this one. The best way to place a bet here is on Auburn to cover the spread in this game.
Auburn Texas A&M Prediction: Our NCAAF Pick for Saturday, September 23, 2023 (12:00 pm ET start time) is Texas A&M 34 Auburn 30.
