OSU-Texas A&M Line

The OSU-Texas A&M line has remained steady at -3 early on and shows little sign of moving much with the Aggies a favorite.  Spread action, however, has been seeing 75 percent backing on Oklahoma State.  The total on this game is 69.

Blake Frazier, a betting analyst for the BetOnline.com website, says go with the Cowboys.

“Plainly put, (Brandon) Weeden is the X-factor on Saturday. His poise and presence in the pocket will make it hard for A&M to rattle him. The Aggies’ defense is solid, but not overwhelming, and as long as the Weeden-Blackmon combo can play pitch and catch, Oklahoma State owns the biggest hammer on the field. Take the Cowboys on the road.

OK State has won three of the last four and covered the spread in the last four games of this series.  Texas A&M has won 2 of the last 3 home games in this series although they lost their last home game against OSU in 2009.  The last two games in this series were won by 5 and 3 points, respectively, which still would not cover the current spread. 

But this may be something to hone in on when considering the Aggies only lost on the road to Oklahoma State by 5 points last year before they managed to get their act together and go on an amazing run that included wins over Texas, Texas Tech and Oklahoma.  This leads us here at Gambling911.com to believe Texas A&M can come out on top here although we also tend to feel this game will be dangerously close.   Sagarin has OK State able to win by a point so if Texas A&M were a three point underdog here, we’d like the Aggies.  Frazier is probably right to back OSU as the +3 underdog.  Below are some other betting trends to consider for the OSU-Texas A&M game. 

The Cowboys are 6-0 Against The Spread in their last 6 road games.

The Cowboys are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game.

OSU is  5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win.

The Cowboys are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games overall.

Oklahoma State has not performed well as an underdog, however.  They are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games as a road underdog of 3.5-10.0 and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog overall. 

Meanwhile, the Aggies are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 conference games.

The Aggies are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite.

Texas A&M is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall.

The Aggies are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite.

The Aggies are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games following a SU win of more than 20 points.

The Aggies are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game.

Frazier warns that, ff A&M plays the same way it’s been playing since mid-October of last year, This team could prevail.  They started the season last year 3-3 then ended up going 6-0 down the stretch.

“Coach Mike Sherman has broken through with this team; his players are buying what he’s selling, meaning that the Aggies have crossed an important threshold in terms of their self-belief and confidence.”

Texas A&M's defense was nearly flawless in Saturday's 37-7 win over Idaho, holding them to 187 yards.   Texas A&M piled up 517 yards of offense.
