Aggies are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Aggies are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
Tigers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite.
Tigers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.
Under is 4-1 in Aggies last 5 Bowl games.
Under is 4-1 in Aggies last 5 non-conference games.
Under is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 games following a S.U. loss.
Under is 8-3 in Tigers last 11 games overall.
My Prediction: A&M is really on a roll winning 6 straight and covering the spread in each of those. LSU failed to cover in 4 of their last 6 games. You can run against LSU and I think Aggies RB Cyrus Gray will have a big game in front of a lot of Texas A&M fans in Dallas.
