Texas A&M faces Vanderbilt on Wednesday, March 10th at Bridgestone Arena for an NCAA basketball SEC matchup.
Texas A&M is coming off an 87-80 loss to Arkansas in its last game of the regular season on March 6th on the road. Texas A&M was able to cover the spread and led at halftime of that game, but the Razorbacks were too much for A&M in the end. Texas A&M lost four of its last five games to end the regular season, ending the year with an 8-9 record and a 2-8 conference record. Texas A&M was also 6-11 against the spread this season. Texas A&M's leading scorer so far this season has been F Emanuel Miller, who has scored 15.9 points per game for the Aggies. Texas A&M as a team has scored 64.1 points per game and has shot the ball at a 41.6% clip from the field. Texas A&M has also allowed 66.2 points per game to its opponents as well.
Vanderbilt ended its regular season with a 56-46 loss on the road on March 6th against Ole Miss. Vanderbilt was the lacking stock of the SEC for quite a while this season, but the Commodores quietly had a solid finish to SEC play in the regular season. Vanderbilt is 8-15 and 3-13 in conference play as well. Vanderbilt 11-7-5 against the spread this season as well. Vanderbilt's leading scorer so far this season has been G Scottie Pippen Jr, who has scored 20.6 points per game for the Commodores. Vanderbilt as a team has scored 71.8 points per game and has shot the ball at a 43.3% clip from the field. Vanderbilt has also allowed 72.7 points per game to its opponents as well.
Vanderbilt opens as a 2-point favorite and the total is set at 134.5. Without Disu, Pippen Jr will have to carry his team as he did against Cinncinati. Pippen Jr struggled last game against Ole Miss in limited minutes, which is a bit of a concern. I will take the under, as I think both teams' defense will shine in an otherwise ugly game.
