How the public is betting Florida vs. Texas A&M in Week 6

Here’s a look at the betting splits going into Saturday’s SEC showdown.

NCAA Football: Texas A&M at Alabama The Tuscaloosa News-USA TODAY Sports

The fourth-ranked Florida Gators and their high-powered offense will see the No. 21 Texas A&M Aggies on the road in Saturday’s early window. Florida is putting up a high amount of points through two games, and Texas A&M is a bit of an unknown so far.

Where are sports bettors placing their action going into Saturday’s game? Here’s a look.

Point spread

The point spread opened with Florida as 6.5-point favorites, and that’s where it stands now. A ton of the bets and money are coming in on the Gators, which is the number hasn’t gotten to seven points. Eighty-six percent of bets and handle are going Florida’s way.

Is the public right? Yes, the public is on the correct side. It would be more of a question if this spread reached seven, but Florida deserves this number after the way its offense performed through two games.

Over/Under

The point total began at 57.5 and moved up a full point to 58.5. Eighty-four percent of bets are on the over in this game in addition to 89% of the money.

Is the public right? Through two games, Florida’s offense has been pretty unstoppable with quarterback Kyle Trask throwing for 10 touchdowns already in 2020. At the same time, the Gators’ defense hasn’t been good, which is why the public is going in on the over, and I agree with them.

Moneyline

When it opened, Florida had -235 odds to win on the moneyline with Texas A&M at +190. Through the week, those numbers remained fairly close with Florida at -245 and Texas A&M at +195. Florida is seeing 85% of moneyline bets on its side and 92% of the handle.

Is the public right? Texas A&M is a fairly unknown team in 2020. We saw the Aggies struggle in Week 1 with Vanderbilt and get blown out by Alabama. I still have faith Texas A&M is a quality SEC team, but a win over Florida would be a bit of a surprise. I’d back the Gators on the moneyline.
