NCAA Hoops Betting: Texas AM vs. Texas Pick

Fri, Jan 28, 4:50pm by Kevin Pitstock

The Texas A+M and Texas Longhorns will square off Monday night in a huge Big 12 tilt. The two teams played 12 days ago with the Longhorns coming away with a big win in Austin. Texas A+M fell to third place in the Big 12 behind Texas and Kansas, after they lost a game in Lincoln, Nebraska. Texas has won all six of their conference games, including their last game over the Missouri Tigers. Texas has been good on the road, including snapping the Kansas Jayhawks 69 game home winning streak, while the Aggies are 12-0 when playing at home this season.

Texas A+M Overview

Khris Middletown has been a key for the Aggies this season. As Middleton goes, the Aggies seem to go. The guard is scoring just under 16 points per game for Texas A+M. The Aggies have had troubles offensively this season, ranking 121st in total offense. Those struggles were magnified on Saturday when they scored just 18 second half points in the loss to Nebraska. The Aggies also lost in the non conference portion of their schedule to Boston College in late November. Texas A+M has notable wins over Temple, Arkansas and Washington. Texas A+M is in search of their first trip to the Final Four. The Aggies have 11 tournament appearances with 9 total wins.

Texas Overview

Rick Barnes and his Longhorns have bounced back for an excellent season, after being one of the most disappointing teams last season. The Longhorns came into last year as the #2 team in the country, but then failed to make the postseason. In the Associated Press top 25 poll that is set to be released on Monday, the Longhorns expect to make a jump into the Top 5. Texas is led in scoring by Jordan Hamilton and his 19 points per game. Texas has also benefited from excellent rebounding. The Longhorns are sixth int he country, averaging 41.4 rebounds per game.

Prediction for Texas A+M/Texas

After playing 12 games ago, this game is bound to be an excellent affair. This is a great rivalry between the top two teams from the state of Texas. Middletown and the Aggies seem to have the guard play offensively, but Hamilton and the front court of the Longhorns seem to be over powering. Texas A+M has been unbeatable at home this season, and we expect that to continue to on Monday night. The line for this game is Texas A+M -1.5, and we are picking the Aggies to cover that. Texas A+M wins by 4 at home over Texas.

Our pick: Texas A+M -1.5 at Sportsbet.
