Texas A&M will be a double-digit underdog at home for the second time this season as Auburn is favored by 13.5 points for Saturday’s 11 a.m. kick.
The Tigers opened as 10.5-point picks. It was the second straight week gamblers jumped on A&M’s opponent after the line was set. Last week, A&M opened as a two-point pick over Mississippi State and the Bulldogs immediately become a 1.5-point favorite with it climbing to 3.5 by kickoff. Mississippi State won the game 35-14.
A&M was a 26.5-point underdog to Alabama, which won 27-19 on Oct. 7.
