Odds: Gamecocks back in familiar role as underdogs at Texas A&M

Vegas prefers the Aggies at home as the Gamecocks are underdogs for the third time this season.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Texas A&M won a weird overtime game against Arkansas.

After squeaking by Louisiana Tech at home, the South Carolina Gamecocks now enter a challenging portion of their schedule with a road trip to College Station, where they find themselves 9-point underdogs to Texas A&M.

The Aggies are coming off a wild 50-43 overtime win against Arkansas, the third time in four seasons those teams have played in overtime. A&M had two 100-yard rushers in quarterback Kellen Mond and running back Keith Ford, and were also led by a Deebo Samuel lookalike in wide receiver Christian Kirk, who returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and added two more scores. Another victory over the Razorbacks helps, but embattled A&M coach Kevin Sumlin will certainly be looking to get some more breathing room against the Gamecocks.

The over/under is set at 50. Texas A&M and South Carolina are both 2-2 against the spread this season.
