The Texas A&M Aggies will play their first-ever SEC conference game on Saturday afternoon at home against the Florida Gators. And there is plenty of attention being paid to this showdown, along with the other matchup with Missouri and Georgia.
There is plenty of hype surrounding the Aggies and Tigers and how they will fare against the SEC coming from the Big 12.
Oddsmakers obviously believe that Texas A&M will be just fine, installing the Aggies as favorites at home over the Gators on Saturday afternoon. That is probably in large part due to Texas A&M being at home, with the benefit of the 12th man.
The line is as narrow as can be though, with College Football betting odds available at Bovada Sportsbook setting the Aggies as one-point favorites over Florida. To cover, Texas A&M will need to win by at least two points, while Florida can only cover the point spread with a win straight up. A push results if the Aggies win by exactly one point.
But don’t forget, due to the Hurricane Isaac last weekend, Texas A&M did not play in heir season opener, as it was postponed. So this will be the first game for Texas A&M on the season. And it is often thought that the biggest improvements are made from the first game to the second.
For Florida, there would be plenty of room for improvement.
The Gators did not look very good at home in a 27-14 victory over Bowling Green last Saturday, but head coach Will Muschamp has at least decided on a starting quarterback for the time being. That would be Jeff Driskel, who will go into the game on Saturday with control of the offense.
If Florida is to go on the road as the slight underdog and get the win, it will most likely be because of their tough and athletic defense. Afterall, defense is what has separated the SEC from the rest of the country over the better half of the last decade.
We will see how the defense stands up to the Aggie offense. We don’t have anything to go by for the Aggies on offense yet, as they break in a new starting quarterback after Ryan Tannehill left.
Florida and Texas A&M match up at 3:30pm ET, with coverage on ESPN. Check out the betting odds for this game, as well as the rest of the Week 2 slate in College Football
