NCAA football gambling expectations for the Texas A&M Aggies and head coach Mike Sherman are starting to fall after consecutive NCAA football wagering defeats.
Texas A&M will be desperate and in a must win situation as they host the Missouri Tigers on Saturday with a kickoff time scheduled for noon eastern and Texas A&M opened at Sports-Gambling as a 3 point favorite. Fox Sports Net will telecast the game.
The #21 Missouri Tigers have a record of 5-0 straight up and 3-2 with the NCAA betting lines after their 26-0 win and payout at home over Colorado last week. Mizzou’s star quarterback Blaine Gabbert suffered a hip pointer injury and could not finish the game.
The injury has hurt his mobility and will likely be a factor in this game. Gabbert finished 17-29 for 191 yards and 2 touchdowns. Mizzou ranks 25th in the country for passing and 26th for scoring.
The big story has been their defense that has shown dramatic improvement to rank 3rd for points allowed. Henry Josey is averaging 7.3 yards per carry to lead the team and add balance.
The Texas A&M Aggies have a record of 3-2 straight up and 2-3 with the NCAA betting odds. The Aggies lost to a strong Arkansas team last week 24-17 at Cowboys Stadium after losing at Oklahoma State 38-35 at the gun the week before that.
A&M has shown ability as they rank 15th in the nation for offense and a much improved 24th in total defense. Turnovers have been the killer for Texas A&M as they have been -2 in turnover ratio in both of their losses. The Aggies have superb special teams that could come in handy for this one.
Texas A&M is an improving team that will be a tough test for a Missouri team that faces the prospect of playing with a less than 100 percent Gabbert for the second consecutive season. This looks to be an even match. Mizzou is playing the better football now but A&M should come with an all out effort to avoid falling to 3-3.
Mizzou has paid out in just 3 out of their last 11 NCAA football gambling matchups in the Big 12 and are just 2-10 against the spread after a cover. The Aggies have paid out in just 2 of their last 9 when coming off a straight up loss.
