College football betting fans will be locked in on Saturday’s Big 12 matchup of Nebraska and Texas A&M as they are both in fine college football gambling form for this one.
The #19 Texas A&M Aggies will host the #8 Nebraska Cornhuskers with an ABC telecast set for 8 PM Eastern Time. Sports-Gambling opened with Nebraska as a 2.5 point favorite.
The Texas A&M Aggies have emerged as a top Big 12 contender after a slow start and now stand with a record of 7-3 straight up and 6-4 with the NCAA betting odds as 6 of their games have gone over the total.
The Aggies have won 4 consecutive games both straight up and with the spread and are coming off a 42-30 win at Baylor last week in which they rallied from 30-14 deficit. Junior Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has sparked the turnaround as he was named the starter after the Aggies 30-9 home loss to Missouri.
Tannehill has completed 69% of his passes for 1134 yards and has a 10/3 touchdown/interception ratio. The offense is well balanced as running backs Cyrus Gray and Christine Michael each have over 600 yards rushing and are both over 5 yards per carry.
Jeff Fuller has 923 yards receiving with a 15.1 per catch average and 11 touchdowns. The defense ranks 42nd for points allowed and a strong 13th against the rush although 101st against the pass.
Nebraska has a record of 9-1 straight up and 4-5-1 with the NCAA betting lines as 6 of their games have gone over the total. The Big Red beat Kansas 20-3 last week but failed to cover as 33 point home chalks. Nebraska ranks 17th in the nation for scoring offense and 6th overall for defense.
The Huskers may not match up well against the Aggies defense as they rank 7th in the nation for rushing and 108th for passing. Taylor Martinez has been a sensation at quarterback with 957 yards rushing and 1328 yards passing. Roy Helu has 991 yards rushing as both he and Martinez are over 7 yards per carry.
