The Texas A&M Aggies aim for a fourth straight win by double-digits on Saturday when they meet their SEC conference rival, the South Carolina Gamecocks, on Saturday afternoon in a Week 5 betting matchup at Williams-Brice Stadium.
– Shark Bites
- South Carolina is 1-5 SU in its last six games against its conference.
- Texas A&M is 5-12 ATS in its last 17 games after winning the previous game in a matchup.
- The total has gone UNDER in seven of Texas A&M’s last nine games.
The Aggies have climbed to No. 9 on the AP Top 25 after handing Arkansas a 45-24 defeat last weekend as 7-point chalk. Texas A&M is now a perfect 4-0 this season, both straight up and against the spread, reversing last year’s dismal 3-5 SU and 1-7 ATS regular season finish.
Scoring was once again a problem for the Gamecocks in their 17-10 Week 3 loss to Kentucky, but they have also stymied opposing offenses, which have been limited to just 17.25 points per game this season. That has forced the point total UNDER in each of South Carolina’s past four, and nine of their past 12.
South Carolina looks for their first SU win over Texas A&M since the Aggies joined the SEC in 2012. The Gamecocks covered as 14-point road underdogs in a 35-28 loss last season in College Station after getting blown out 52-28 as 9-point home chalk two years ago.
