If you think Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M in 2019 will match or exceed last season’s record, then Las Vegas has a deal for you.

The over/under for regular-season victories for the Aggies is 7.5, according to  BetOnline.com. That means A&M just needs to match last season’s regular-season record if you want to take the over. Of course, the Aggies reached 8-4 last season with a seven-overtime, 74-72 victory over LSU.

I think season over/under propositions are silly bets, considering how injuries can wreck a season.

Of the 23 teams listed below, all have a higher over/under total than A&M except TCU, which also is at 7.5. TCU has road games with Purdue, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, and home games against Texas and West Virginia. Those teams were a combined 50-32 (.610) last season.

That pales in comparison to A&M which has road games at Clemson, Georgia and LSU, and plays Alabama at home. Those teams were 50-5 (.909) last season. The other eight teams A&M will play were 43-56 (.434) last season, thus you can see why Vegas picked 7.5 as the over/under total, but all those other teams aren’t  chopped liver.  Auburn (8-5), Mississippi State (8-5) and South Carolina (7-6) all had winning records, and Auburn and Mississippi State beat A&M.
