The Aggies are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite, however, are just 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Bulldogs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog & just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

Both teams can struggle on the offensive end, however, Texas A&M has at least shown some signs of life on the offensive end compared to a Butler team that currently ranks just t-304th in scoring offense & 255th in FG%. Texas A&M has been solid defensively as they currently rank t-50th in scoring defense & 40th in defensive FG% and as I think Butler struggles against offensively in this one, I think Texas A&M does enough to cover this small spread. Good Luck!
