The number 5 LSU Tiger (9-2, 6-1 SEC) will travel to Kyle Field to fight the Texas A&M Aggies (4-7, 1-6) Saturday at 7 p.m. ET (ESPN). Below we analyze the lines of Tipico Sportsbook around the LSU vs Texas A&M Oddsand do our college football picks and predictions from the experts.

Texas A&M started the 2022 season at 6th place and was hoping for a place in the playoffs. Now, due to coach Jimbo Fisher’s utter mismanagement of offense, the Aggies can’t even play a bowl game.
The Aggies have not scored 30 points against an FBS opponent since Halloween in 2021 and fans were so upset by the team’s lack of success that most stands were emptied at half-time against UMass last week despite the game only 7 points A&M projection was . Fisher will have to do a Soul Search this offseason.
LSU entered the season unranked, losing their first game under Brian Kelly to a missed extra point. Since then, the Tigers have lost only once, a 27-point decision to Tennessee. They’ve already secured a spot in the SEC championship game against Georgia and are considering playoffs. But the Tigers need to win first this week. Though the Aggies struggle, LSU can’t take them lightly.

LSU at Texas A&M picks and predictions
LSU 30, Texas A&M 13
LSU needs this game to keep their playoff hopes alive. It will not be taken lightly. This means Texas A&M at +325 is not a smart bet and LSU at -425 is not worth a play unless added to a big combo.
Against the spread
BET LSU -10 (-108).
LSU has played brilliantly for the past few weeks as the Aggies look to finish this season by 2023. Fisher lost that team and many of his valuable recruits from last offseason will likely go elsewhere.
Kelly makes his LSU team believe and play hard. They’ll continue this week as they overcome emotions to beat the Aggies into submission. LSU -10 (-108) is my game here.
BET UNDER 47.5 (-113).
LSU will use running play and ball control to shorten this game and get out of Kyle Field with as little drama as possible. QB Jayden Daniels showed LSU why they took him off the transfer portal with his game over the past few weeks, including a game-winning TD run against Alabama.
Points weren’t the Aggies’ friend — 21.4 PPG is 108th out of 131 teams — and they’ll be hard to come by in this matchup. Both teams want to let the ball run and there is a lack of explosive offensives. This game will end in the low 40’s Under 47.5 (-113) is my favorite game.
