Why Bet on the Texas A&M Aggies?
Texas A&M averages 64.3 opponent points (46th) while allowing 40.4% opponent shooting (44th) per game. These numbers might fall behind the Tigers but are good enough to win 15 games so far. The Aggies hold opponents’ two-point shooting to 46.3% (51st) while limiting three-point shots to 30.7% (61st). As a team, Texas A&M records a decent opponent effective field goal percentage at 46.2% (43rd).
Offensively, the visitors are almost neck and neck with the hosts in points per game. The team averages 73.4 points (99th) in 19 games played. They are the better three-point shooting team in this matchup. The Aggies hit 35.0% of their shots (104th) from beyond the arc.
Wade Taylor IV impressed everyone after the guard produced 25 points, two assists, and a rebound in his recent appearance. Meanwhile, Jalen Johnson is the only player to miss the game after the forward sustained a season-ending knee injury.
Why Bet on the LSU Tigers?
LSU prides itself on one of the best defenses in the league. They hold teams to 58.1 points per game and are the seventh-best record in NCAA basketball at the moment. The team leads the league in opponent shooting percentage and allows opponents to only 35.7%. These numbers are no joke if a team lacks an offensive threat. The Tigers have competent defense around the arc as they hold teams to a 26.5% three-point percentage (fourth). Moreover, we expect Tigers to outrebound their opponents after averaging 39.8 total rebounds (20th) per game.
The Tigers have plenty of work to do on the offensive end. The. LSU averages 73.3 points (101st) per game on 44.3% shooting (136th). They are particularly behind in three-point shooting at 32.2% (237th). But, their 50.7% two-point shooting (142nd) percentage should be enough to match what the Aggies bring to the table.
Two guards are on the Tigers’ injury report. Xavier Pinson is on the questionable list after picking up a knee injury. However, Adam Miller’s knee injury is more crucial as reports say that he will miss the rest of the season.
