These teams met in Baton Rouge on January 17<sup>th</sup> with the Aggies emerging with a 67-64 victory at the Tigers’ expense.  I will favor the avenging road dog in tonight's <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/ncaa-basketball/" target="_blank" title="Compare NCAA Basketball Odds on offer">NCAA Basketball odds</a>, based on their outstanding road ability and potent offense.  </p> <p>Texas A&amp;M has been a pleasant surprise for Aggie backers in the 4<sup>th</sup> year under HC Billy Kennedy.  The 18 victories of last season culminated with a quarter-final finish in the CBI post-season tourney.  This year, an Aggie team with 4 RS was picked to finish 7<sup>th</sup> in the SEC.  But, they are looking for more!  The Aggies have actually played a bit better on the conference road, going 4-1 SU ATS of late.  On their home floor of Reed Arena, they already have a pair of losses to Georgia and Kentucky, along with a narrow 1 point win over Florida <span data-term="goog_1413770907" tabindex="0">on Saturday</span>.  They have cooled a bit as the calendar has turned to February with a record of 2-2 SU but 1-3 ATS.  </p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/ncaa-basketball/wake-forest-vs-notre-dame-ncaa-basketball-picks-live-dog-double-digit-price-sounds-nice/54311/" target="_blank" title=" Live Dog at Double-Digit Price Sounds Nice! "><em>This handicapper's found another live dog in today's NCAA Basketball odds.</em></a></p> <p>The real story here is LSU, whom we have ridden with out <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/ncaa-basketball/" target="_blank" title="Check out our other top NCAA Basketball Picks">NCAA Basketball Picks</a> to road victories in every one of their upsets.  Beginning on December 4<sup>th</sup>, LSU won 74-73 at WVU as 9 point dog.  On January 14<sup>th</sup>, the Tigers upset Ole Miss in Oxford (75-71) as 6 point pup.  Later in January, in consecutive road games, LSU won at Florida (79-61) as double digit dog, then stole one at Vandy (79-75) as 2 point dog.  On Saturday, in a top-rated 5% play for this bureau, LSU crushed Tennessee, wire-to-wire, for a 73-55 victory.  That makes it 5-0 SU ATS as road dog, in which they have covered the number by 74 points or 15 PPG.  THIS IS NOT A FLUKE FOR 3<sup>RD</sup> YEAR MENTOR, JOHNNY JONES.  In returning to his alma mater, Jones has continued a lifetime coaching mark, which sees his teams to be now 87-53 ATS as road dog, 43-19 ATS L8Y and, of course, 5-0 ATS this year.  Fundamentally, they possess the athleticism and offensive and defensive excellence of Mickey and Martin on the inside, the 3 point shooting of Hornsby and a pair of point guards in Patterson and Gray to run the show.  </p> <p>In short, this is as live a road dog as you will find on Tuesday's NCAA Basketball betting slate.</p> <p><strong>NCAA Basketball Picks: </strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=3372&amp;book=in-article-thegreek" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Act now at The Greek Sportsbook">Take LSU +140 at The Greek</a></p> <p><iframe allowtransparency="true" border="0" frameborder="no" height="140px" id="iframe-odds-widget-2036869707517426" name="iframe-odds-widget-2036869707517426" scrolling="no" src="http://js.sbrfeeds.com/index.php/article?iframeid=iframe-odds-widget-2036869707517426&amp;timezone=16&amp;theme=article&amp;line-type=spreadntotals.type=whole-game&amp;odds-type=US&amp;books=19,43,227,1096,999996,93,238,123,139&amp;trackers=1409845611531.xml&amp;event-id=361917" style="width:642px;border:medium none;overflow:hidden"></iframe></p>
