College Basketball Betting Free Play: Texas A&M Aggies at Arkansas Razorbacks

Texas A&M at Arkansas -3.5 O/U 144.5 
Recommendation: Over

In the first meeting between Arkansas and Texas A&M in College Station, the Aggies were able to control tempo (64 possessions) but still lost 62-60. The venue switches to Bud Walton Arena where the Razorbacks tend to control pace and score at a higher clip. A&M coach Billy Kennedy on tonight's game: "We’re going to need to score,” he said. "You get opportunities to score in transition against them. We need to make good decisions and put the ball in the hole. You’ve got to take good shots against them. If the game is in the 80s or 90s we’re in trouble.” They'll have their chances tonight as Arkansas ranks last in the SEC in strength of schedule according to Ken Pom and yet still own the league’s third-worst defensive efficiency. A&M hasn't been shy about putting up points on some of the SEC's "all offense, no defense" teams. Against LSU, the Aggies hung 92 and 85. Against Ole Miss they hit for 80. And last time out against Auburn, they notched 81. Also note that the first meeting had 102 points with just under 10 minutes to play and both teams went ice cold. Market with the assist here as the opener was bet down from 147 to a very playable 144.5.

Thx for doing show solo, more of your perspective in CBB is always enlightening. I played Ark. Just like where they are mentally. They prolly think they can get in Tourney by finishing well. They are young and have a good coach and appear to be peaking at the right time. I have concerns about how well TAMU can play in a high energy game on the road toward the end of regular ssn, without Hogg (12ppg, 5reb, 4 assists). If Ark does control pace then his absence will be missed and what is TAMU mindset? Kennedy has to be thinking " what lineups do I have to find so we can play at high level in SEC tourney"? because thats their only shot to get into NCAA tourney. 3.5 seems cheap to me
