With the arrival of Jimbo Fisher expectations for the Texas A&M Aggies are indeed larger than life and emblematic of the state itself. As the saying goes. “everything is bigger in Texas” and that is certainly the case ever since the Aggies nearly upset national title contender Clemson in week two. Indeed, A&M has shown dramatic improvement already under Fisher and it stands to figure that when he gets his own recruits clicking in the program will take off. Conversely the Mississippi State Bulldogs are regressing under first year head coach Joe Moorhead. It was stated that previous coach Dan Mullen left behind a full cupboard for Moorhead. Either the talent or the coach have proven to be overrated. Perhaps it is both. Texas A&M meets Mississippi State on Saturday.
Watch this Week 9 matchup live on Saturday, October 27, 2018, at 7 p.m. ET from Davis Wade Stadium, Starkville, Mississippi. The game can be seen on ESPN.

Live Betting Odds Analysis
This line is a bit of a surprise as Texas A&M is considered by most to be the superior team. Much of the odds are based on Mississippi State’s good betting value at home and in this series.
Aggies Making Gains
Texas A&M enters this one with a record of 5-2 straight up, 6-1 against the spread, and with four of their seven games going under the total. The Aggies have won three in a row with two consecutive payouts while going under the total in their last three tilts. Texas A&M is coming off a bye that followed a 26-23 payout at South Carolina.
Mississippi State is 4-3 straight up and against the spread with five out of their six games going under the total. The Bulldogs are coming off an ugly 19-3 loss at LSU as five point dogs. Overall MSU has lost three of their last four both straight up and with the line.
Texas A&M has been a decent betting value as a road dog recently as evidenced by their mark of four payouts in their last six games in that situation. Additionally, the Aggies have gone under the total in five of their last eight when getting points on the road.
Counter to that is the good value that Hail State has shown as a home favorite recently. To illuminate the Bulldogs have paid in five of their last eight as a home chalk. Five of their last seven in that situation have gone under the total.
Head to Head
It may surprise fans and gamblers to know that Mississippi State has dominated the payout window in their series with Texas A&M. To show, the Bulldogs have come away with the cash in four of their last five meetings with the Aggies. Two of the last three in this series have also gone under the total. At Davis Wade Stadium Hail State has won and covered their last two games against Texas A&M. Both games also went over the total.
Live Betting Matchup to Watch
The Aggies are well balanced ranking 14th in the nation for total offense and 21st for total defense. This could give them a consistent live betting advantage over Mississippi State. For example, the Bulldogs rank 82nd in the country for scoring offense and 111th for passing yardage. Counter to that is their sixth in the country ranked defense. A lot of last week’s live betting focused on the Bulldogs inability to move the ball and score on LSU.
Free Live Betting ATS Pick
Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald has struggled with a 47% complete rate and 4/7 touchdown to interception rate. This does not bode will against the good Aggies defense and could be the focal point of live betting.
