Shane’s Free Pick
Alabama has struggled to cover the spreads on the road and that is going to be the case again here. Texas A&M’s defense gave up only 61 points in the last game and they are going to step up enough in this game to find success. The Aggies will find a way to slow down Miller, and Texas A&M is going to cover the spread.
