Texas A&M Aggies Betting

Texas A&M took a step back in Jimbo Fisher’s second year at the helm. The Aggies went 9-4 in 2018, and it appeared that he might have this program on the cusp of something special after close losses to eventual national champions Clemson and Auburn. However, Texas A&M went just 7-5 this season, as the Aggies lost to every team they faced that had a winning record. Three of those defeats came by at least 14 points, leading to some grumbling in College Station. This isn’t what the boosters were hoping for after giving Fisher the keys to the kingdom. Fisher signed a fully guaranteed 10-year, $75 million contract with Texas A&M in December 2017, and the Aggies expected the national championship winning coach to make this program into a contender. However, they have been the fourth best team in the mighty SEC West to this point, languishing behind Alabama, LSU, and Auburn.

Although the Aggies are facing a team with a winning record in the Texas Bowl on December 27, Texas A&M is a six-point favorite on the college football betting line over the Oklahoma State Cowboys. OSU is short-handed coming into this game, and it will be tough for Mike Gundy’s Cowboys to compete.

Texas A&M Aggies -7

Oklahoma State Cowboys +7

Over 54.5

It was a frustrating season for Kellen Mond, but he will have the opportunity to go out on a high note against Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are allowing 277.1 YPG through the air, so Mond could surpass 300 yards for the first time since late September.

Mond completed 61.3 percent of his passes for 2,802 yards with 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions this season. He was more accurate than he was as a sophomore, but he didn’t move the ball down the field as effectively and he was slightly more interception prone.

He has a very good wide receiver to work with in Jhamon Ausbon and an excellent tight end in Jalen Wydermyer. Ausbon led the team with 65 receptions for 862 yards and four touchdowns, while Wydermyer was the main red zone threat for the Aggies with 31 receptions for 419 yards and six touchdowns.

Unfortunately, leading rusher Isaiah Spiller has been largely ineffective against good teams. He had monster performances against Texas State, Lamar, and UTSA, running for more than half of his 869 yards on the season in those three games. However, he carried the ball 45 times for 133 yards in the Aggies’ five losses, so he has been a non-factor in defeats.

Oklahoma State’s defense is better than it has been in prior seasons, but this unit still isn’t great. The Cowboys are No. 53 in defensive SP+, and that means the Aggies are likely going to have some success against this unit.

The Cowboys may really struggle to move the ball on Texas A&M though. Star quarterback Spencer Sanders and standout wide receiver Tylan Wallace both sustained season-ending injuries, and they will not take part in the Texas Bowl as a result. That leaves Okie State without two if its triplets, putting the pressure on Chuba Hubbard.

Hubbard has been a workhorse back this season, carrying the ball 309 times for 1,936 yards and 21 touchdowns. Oklahoma State has turned to the Canadian national more and more with the injuries to Sanders and Wallace, and he has carried the team on his back.

Dru Brown will start in place of Sanders at quarterback. The Hawaii graduate transfer was the favorite to start for Oklahoma State back in spring, but Sanders’ mobility won him the job instead. Brown is a better passer than Sanders, completing 72.2 percent of his passes for 626 yards with five touchdowns and one interception on the year, but Texas A&M won’t have to respect his running ability.

The Aggies may have to replace defensive coordinator Mike Elko prior to the bowl game though. Elko is a finalist for a few head coaching positions, and the 42-year-old might be ready to take the plunge and become a head coach.

Regular Season Recap

This season was rather predictable for Texas A&M. The Aggies won every game they were favored in and should have won, and they lost every game in which they were an underdog to a superior team.

Texas A&M cruised to wins over Texas State and Lamar in non-conference play, but the Aggies were no match for Clemson in Week 2. They hung close with Auburn in what was their best chance to beat a top team, and they continued their struggles against subpar Arkansas teams the following week in Arlington.

The Aggies were flattened at home by Alabama to move to 3-3 on the season, but they rebounded from that loss to win four straight games. Texas A&M was a double-digit underdog per the college football betting odds on the road against Georgia, but the Aggies hung around and came close to upsetting the Bulldogs.

They were no match for LSU in the season finale though. The Tigers jumped on the Aggies from the opening whistle, taking a 21-0 lead into the second quarter on their way to a 50-7 humiliation. That loss has some in College Station gritting their teeth, and next season will be a very important one for Fisher.
