A&M is under some serious pressure this year after going 5-7 and 2-6 in SEC play with some of the best recruiting classes in the country at their hands. Miami beat Miami (OH) 38-3 in their Week 1 game.

The Pick

Texas A&M -3

The Aggies grabbed a close 17-9 win over Miami in 2022, and as the two teams meet again, A&M is the more prepared and developed of the two. Despite their brutal end to the 2022 season in which they went 2-6 in their last eight games, the Aggies can cover the spread against this Hurricanes team.

Miami’s home advantage is not like other team’s home advantage, and the A&M team has some top talent. They may still be working on developing said talent, but QB Connor Weigman and his receivers give them plenty to work with.
