Point Spread: 
UK -6.5 / TAM +6.5

On the Tuesday college basketball schedule, we have Kentucky making the trek to College Station, Texas to take on Texas A&M. The odds board lists UK as a 6.5 point road favorite with a total line of 129. Tip-off for the game at Reed Arena is 7 PM ET.

Kentucky at Texas A&M Betting Overview

UK is on a roll winning six straight and nine of their last ten. They're unbeaten at home in conference play going 7-0 and have a strong 5-2 record on the road. On the campaign, they're 22-5 SU and 13-13-1 against the spread.

Texas A&M has put together a mini three-game streak to push their SEC record to 8-6. The Aggies have matching 4-3 marks at home and on the road in conference games and are a strong 10-4 versus the point spread number.

Head to Head

Kentucky has dominated in this series going 8-2 over the last ten meetings. That success, however, hasn't resulted in a profit for their backers with the Wildcats going just 4-6 against the spread in the ten games. The total has been a strong play with the past three and seven of the last eight going “Over” the closing line.

Public Wagering

The public is drinking the UK Kool-Aid with the medium average of 70% landing on the road favorite laying the 6.5 points. The total, as is the norm, HAS Joe Public betting on the "Over" with 75% landing on that side of the O/U line.

Team Injuries

Both teams come into the game with their starters having a clean bill of health.

Kentucky at Texas A&M Prediction 2/25/20

Kentucky has the better resume hands down in conference play not only in their overall record but also in the quality of the wins. That said, UK finds itself in a dangerous spot tonight. They are off back to back wins over quality opponents and have a huge revenge game against Auburn on deck. The 6.5 point line is larger than their margin of victory in their last three, and the Aggies come into the match on a confidence-building three-game win streak. I'm going to bank on the home side staying within the number.
