Texas A&M Betting Outlook

Texas A&M has easy non-conference games against Kent State, Colorado, New Mexico and Prairie View A&M. In conference they draw easier games against Mississippi State, Arkansas, South Carolina, Missouri and Auburn. From there, they face Alabama at home and LSU/Mississippi on the road. They should win 10 games, but this is a sharp line.
