How the public is betting Texas A&M vs. Mississippi State in Week 7

Texas A&M will head on the road to take on Mississippi State. Where does the betting public think this game will go?

NCAA Football: Florida at Texas A&M Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 11 Texas A&M Aggies will go on the road to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon in a game between wildly unpredictable teams.

We’ve seen plenty of different versions of these teams so far in 2020, so it’s anyone’s guess what will take place this weekend. Before the game kicks off, let’s take a look at where the betting public thinks this game will take us.

All odds and info is provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.

Point spread

Texas A&M opened up at -5.5, and the number dropped slightly according to DraftKings at -5. Texas A&M is receiving the majority of bets at 60%, but 54% of the handle is on Mississippi State.

Is the public right? Good luck figuring out either of these teams where we have no clue what to expect from either on a given Saturday. In a situation like that, I’m going with the underdogs, so I’ll side with where the money is going.

Over/Under

The point total opened at 55.5, and it’s down to 54.5 on DraftKings currently. Ninety-five percent of the bets are coming in on the over including 77% of the handle.

Is the public right? The Air Raid has been all-or-nothing against the SEC this season for Mike Leach. In the last two games, it’s been mostly nothing. Defenses have figured out what Mississippi State has been trying to do, and let’s look for that to continue and go against 95% of the bettors.

Moneyline

Texas A&M opened up at -265 with Mississippi State at +210. On DraftKings, Texas A&M is now listed at -210 with Mississippi State at +163. The Aggies are coming in with 61% of the bets and 66% of the handle

Is the public right? Yes. No. Maybe? I have no idea who’s going to win this game. Because I have no idea, why not go with the underdogs? I could see anything happening here. Just when we count them out, I could see the Bulldogs taking care of business at home.
