Miami vs Texas A&M predictions
Both teams are still feeling things out in the early going. Miami has looked sharp in limited action dropping an average of 50 points per game, while the Aggies have looked far less impressive, averaging just 14 per contest.
This will be a very different game for the Hurricanes and one of the toughest tests they will face all season. Don't expect them to move the ball much against a dominant Texas A&M defense.
Here are some key factors to watch when sizing up your Miami vs Texas A&M picks:
Texas A&M key stats
- Allowing 17 points per game since the start of last season
- 6-2 ATS as a home favorite since 2021
- 5-0 ATS in their last five games vs ACC opponents
Look for the Aggies to bounce back in a major way here by stifling Miami with a dominant defensive performance. A&M will move the ball enough to create separation and keep the game out of reach in the final minutes
Prediction: Texas A&M 24, Miami 13
