What to Know
The Auburn Tigers are 2-7 against the Texas A&M Aggies since March of 2016, but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Tuesday. Auburn and A&M will face off in an SEC battle at 7 p.m. ET at Reed Arena. The Aggies will be strutting in after a victory while Auburn will be stumbling in from a defeat.
It was close but no cigar for Auburn as they fell 46-43 to the Tennessee Volunteers this past Saturday. Guard Allen Flanigan wasn't much of a difference maker for Auburn; Flanigan played for 28 minutes but put up just nine points on 3-for-11 shooting.
Meanwhile, the Georgia Bulldogs typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday A&M proved too difficult a challenge. Everything went A&M's way against UGA as they made off with an 82-57 win. Among those leading the charge for A&M was guard Tyrece Radford, who had 15 points along with seven rebounds.
Auburn is expected to lose this next one by 3. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 2-0 against the spread when expected to lose.
