The sample size might be small, but Auburn commits too many turnovers and shoots poorly enough on threes in road games to support the buck-and-a-half total. A&M misfires on 3's regardless of the venue, with a wretched 28.6 percent success rate this season. The Tigers have topped the total just once in five away games going back to the spring of 2018, while the Aggies have done the same in seven home games of late.
