Texas A&M vs Auburn Prediction

The current betting odds have Auburn listed as a 6 point favorite in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Auburn enters this game as a ranked team with their 16-3 record overall but they have been having a great season. They are a perfect 10-0 in their home games this season and they are 6-1 in their conference games as they fight for the lead of the SEC. They have won 5 games in a row and have been blowing out a lot of their opponents on this run. Texas A&M has also been having a good season this year as they are 13-6 overall and 5-1 in their conference games as they are creeping up the standings. They haven't been great in their road games though with a 3-2 road record this year and they have also had a very weak conference schedule so far. Auburn has played much tougher teams all season and they also have the better talent on their team that will dominate on their home court here the way they have been doing so in their last few games on this hot run. Auburn will keep up their pace here and stay on this hot run with another home win. The best way to place a bet here is on Auburn to cover the spread in this game.

Notable Quotes


“We studied that lineup. This was the third game. They are a distinctly different team. Their job on the glass has been much better. Their pace is a little different. Their team is different. It seemed as though they had a different collective thought in what they were trying to accomplish.” - Buzz Williams after his team’s loss against Kentucky in their last game.


“It boosts the whole team’s confidence. Wen is a special point guard. Everybody knows he can score but I think his passing is a little bit underrated. He proved that tonight.” - Johni Broome on the passing abilities of Wendell Green Jr. after their win against South Carolina in their last game.
