Miami at Texas A&M betting analysis

Texas A&M is 11th nationally allowing 8.5 points per game. Miami is 16th in scoring defense allowing 10 PPG. With both offenses struggling this season, a best bet for the Aggies and Hurricanes is to play the under. The 44.5-point total is very low for a college football game, but both defenses have been elite early in 2022.

Miami should be able to cover the 5.5 points. The Aggies and Hurricanes should have a low-scoring, tight game. Miami has significantly improved its running game this season. The Hurricanes need to continue to run well in a hostile environment at Kyle Field. Miami also has a huge advantage at quarterback.
