College Basketball: Saturday, February 15, 2020 at 3:30 pm (Reed Arena)
The Line: Texas A&M Aggies 0 -- Over/Under: 133.5
The Georgia Bulldogs (12-12, 2-9 CONF) and the Texas A&M Aggies (11-12, 5-6 CONF) will meet on Saturday, February 15th for an SEC matchup at Reed Arena in College Station, TX. The game will be played at 3:30 PM eastern time.
Georgia has not been the sharpest recently, as they have lost their last three games, all of which were SEC contests. In their most recent loss, Georgia suffered a 75-59 defeat to South Carolina at home, not a very good look at all. Texas A&M has dropped its last two games, and have lost three of their last four overall. The Aggies lost 78-61 to the Florida Gators in their last game on February 12th at home.
Georgia has been known to score at efficient rates this season, so it was surprising to see them be held to only 59 points in the loss to South Carolina. The Bulldogs score 76.1 points per game, which puts them among the conference leaders in scoring. Georgia allows 75.1 points per game to the opposition, which puts them near the bottom of the conference in defense. Georgia also earns 38.3 rebounds, 13.8 assists, 3.5 blocks, and 7.6 steals per game.
Texas A&M is a far more defensive-minded team than Georgia is, as the Aggies only allow 63.7 points per game to the opposition. Texas A&M has struggled badly on offense, however, as the Aggies only manage to score 60.6 points per game, which is among the conference and country’s lowest totals. Texas A&M also earns 35.0 rebounds, 10.3 assists, 3.2 blocks, and 6.3 steals per game.
Georgia is 12-12 ATS this season and 5-5 ATS in their last ten games. Georgia is also 4-4 ATS on the road so far this season. Texas A&M is 9-14 ATS this season and 5-5 ATS in their last ten games. Texas A&M is also 4-9 ATS at home so far this season.
Georgia was victorious in the first meeting between these two teams. They totally dominated the Aggies in that game, and I see more of the same in this one. I will take Georgia on the pick-em line.
