Texas A&M Aggies College Football Betting
Texas A&M has long believed that they belong in the national championship and SEC elite conversation. Certainly, Texas A&M has the resources to do whatever it takes to win a natty. It’s no secret that the Aggies print money with one of the wealthiest and most passionate fan and donor bases in all of college football. But the stark reality for the Aggies is that since 1939 they have failed to win a national championship. So too is the fact that Texas A&M has never really come close since that lone title from 81 years ago. In recent years the Aggies have posted just one double digit win season since 1998. That was in 2012 when Texas A&M and then head coach Kevin Sumlin caught lightning in a bottle with eventual Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel to go 11-2 and finish fifth in the nation. But that has proven to be the exception rather than the rule. Which is why when Jimbo Fisher arrived in December of 2017 to become head coach of the Aggies with a bank busting contract the presentation of a national championship trophy of the future seemed quite presumptuous.

Texas A&M Aggies Weekly Recap
Last week the Texas A&M Aggies scored a workmanlike 20-7 home win over the LSU Tigers as 16-point home favorites with the game going under the total of 59.5. LSU got a touchdown in the final moments for a classic back door cover. The Aggies are now 6-1 straight up, 3-4 against the spread and 3-4 under the total.
Isaiah Spiller ran for 141 yards and a touchdown in the win over LSU. This season he has a total of 784 yards rushing with 6.0 yards per carry and six touchdowns. Quarterback Kellen Mond had a bad day going 11-34 for 105 yards passing.

There was a time when Jimbo Fisher was touted to be one of the great offensive minds in college football. And when Fisher led the Florida State Seminoles to the 2013 national championship he was vetted as in the elite class. But that season proved to be the pinnacle of Fisher’s career. As it turned out Fisher was seen as coddling talented but troubled quarterback Jameis Winston. So too did Fisher battle with FSU administrators over spending for upgrades in facilities. Fisher’s players became disgusted with how he handled Winston in comparison to the rest of the team. Just four years after winning the natty Fisher bailed on the Seminoles. So far, he has taken longer than expected to get the Aggies up to speed but this season has been the first out of his three where Aggies fans can see the progress necessary to believe that bigger days are ahead. Whether Fisher is good enough to overcome the historic gravity of this program is another matter altogether.
