Against the Spread Pick
The Texas A&M Aggies have tied their season high with three straight wins heading into Tuesday’s date with the Kentucky Wildcats. Texas A&M is coming off consecutive victories over Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi State. Three different players (Wendell Mitchell, Quenton Jackson, and Josh Nebo) led the way in scoring in those three contests, all with at least 20 points. Kentucky has won six in a row, but only two of those wins have come by more than six points. Nick Richards (14.3 ppg) has scored below hiss season average in three of the past four outings. The Aggies are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 against opponents with winning records, 7-1 ATS in their last eight against opponents with winning percentages over .600, and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 as underdogs. Eight points should be enough for TEXAS A&M to cover.
Over Under Pick
Texas A&M has suddenly began to shoot the ball well, scoring at least 74 points in each of its past three contests (74, 74, and 87). For Kentucky, Immanuel Quickley (15.7 ppg) is delivering 20.6 ppg in February. The over is 7-2 in the Wildcats’ last nine on the road and 6-1 in their last seven against opponents with winning records. It is also 6-1 in the Aggies’ last seven at home and 7-1 in their last eight against opponents with winning records. Look for this one to go OVER the total.
