The Texas A&M Aggies have had difficulties offensively. They’ve dropped three of their last four games, and scored 54 points in all three.

Over the past eight, MSU is averaging better than 81 points per game. Iverson Molinar, Tolu Smith and D.J. Stewart Jr. are the second-highest scoring trio in the SEC.

A&M is 2-5 ATS in its past seven as a dog.
