Rice vs. Texas A&M Betting Line at -26.5:  Owls Have Great Value as Live Dog

The Rice vs. Texas A&M betting line had the Aggies as a -26.5 favorite for Week 1of the 2013 College Football season.  All odds courtesy of CarbonSports.com where you can get up to $250 in FREE CASH when you open an online betting account here today.

Note that this game was off the board at times as we await the decision to be handed down regarding Aggies star Johnny Manziel.  The NCAA is investigating whether he was paid for signing hundreds of autographs on photos and sports memorabilia.  Carbon Sports did have the -26.5 number up at the time this was going to publication and we suggest jumping on it now, but side with Rice +26.5!!!

The Owls are 4-0 Against The Spread in their last 4 non-conference games.

The Owls are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

The Owls are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games.

The Aggies are 7-0 Against The Spread in their last 7 vs. CUSA.

The Aggies are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

A key stat here to consider is that Texas A&M covered the current spread of 26.5 points in 4 of their last 10 games while Rice did not lose by more than this number in their last 10 games. 

"At the beginning of most seasons, Rice has the bar set at earning a postseason berth. This year, the program is thinking bigger," notes Richard Cirmiello of Scout.com. 

That's because the Owls enjoyed their best College Football season in five years.

Only nine of last year's players have departed so there is little reason to believe this Rice team will come unraveled in 2013. 

Let’s face it, if you can get the -26.5 and, especially if Manziel is not playing for Texas A&M (but even if he is), Rice should be able to cover this numberWith out Manziel this number will drop, so lock it in now.
