Aggies look to bounce back behind grad student Trevor Knight. Read on as expert capper analyses team and seeks value for betting win totals.
Texas A&M Aggies
The market was very high on the Aggies after beating Bama, having Johhny Manzell and all the flash on offense, took the market awhile to come back to earth with Texas A&M. 5th year in the Kevin Sumlin administration, they have made a bowl game every year, but the yield curve has not been heading in the right direction.
The foundation is there, talent on defense, plus two of the top wide receivers in the SEC. They might need more stability from the QB position. Spread record 4-18 since mid 2013 – 2 of those wins against Vanderbilt.
How Sumlin got this job was his success at Houston, he had Case Keenum. When he got to College Station he inherited Johnny Manziel then had Kenny Hill, followed by Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray who all transferred out. Highly recruited kids that never dealt with adversity.
Now Trevor Knight (grad student) transfers in from Oklahoma, where he lost his job. He is an experienced QB with a chip on his shoulder. In the spring game he played well 25 of 36 passing for 2 TDS and ran one in. Great to have some mobility in the spread.
The Aggies will have a tough schedule, as is life in the SEC West. You should consider this when looking at college football odds. Although they get a break with a bye before Alabama. I recommend an Over bet on Texas A&M season win totals for my college football pick.
