When and where: February 12, 2019, Reed Arena, College Station, TX, 7:00 PM ET

The Georgia Bulldogs will try to avoid their fifth consecutive loss on Tuesday when they meet head-to-head with the Texas A&M Aggies. Losses to Ole Miss, Alabama, South Carolina and Arkansas have the Bulldogs sitting at second-to-last in the SEC Conference standings. Things haven’t looked much better for the Aggies, who have lost nine of their last 12 games, including last Wednesday’s loss to Ole Miss.

Georgia gets lit up by Tyree

As the final seconds ran off the clock in Saturday night’s game against Ole Miss, it was hard not to ponder what Georgia’s record would look like if they didn’t play Vanderbilt this season. They’d be a winless team in the SEC Conference.

The Rebels took advantage of an obvious cupcake matchup by keeping the pressure on Georgia and forcing them into making critical mistakes. By halftime, the Bulldogs were already down by 12 points, and they did little to gain any ground on the other side of the break. Ole Miss also forced them into 19 turnovers, while burying them with star guard Breein Tyree, who scored a game-high 31 points.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs offense mostly consisted of Rayshaun Hammonds, Jordan Harris and Tyree Crump each contributing 10 points. Harris, in particular, had a solid outing in the 80-64 loss by notching a double-double with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks.

Texas A&M snaps three-game losing streak

Texas A&M ran into some tough competition against Tennessee and LSU after their win over Kent State. The Volunteers are one of the best teams in the country, and LSU is a top-25 team with offensive weapons all over the floor. It was a tough spot to be in for an Aggies team that simply lacks the talent to compete at that level right now.

They aren’t averaging 80-plus points per game, and their defense isn’t stout enough to present any real challenge for those teams. However, they were able to show some fight with a more realistic task on Saturday night: A road game against Missouri. They shot 49.0 percent from the floor and out-rebounded the Tigers 34-25 to win their second conference game of the season, 68-59.

Junior guard Wendell Mitchell scored a team-high 20 points and six rebounds, while forward Christian Mekowulu netted a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds. TJ Starks contributed 15 points, three assists and two steals off the bench.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Bulldogs have yet to win a conference game on the road this season, leaving little reason to expect they’ll be able to beat the Aggies at Reed Arena on Tuesday night. Both teams are basically playing not to be stuck at the bottom of the SEC rankings. A win for the Bulldogs would move them ahead of Texas A&M and behind Missouri, while a loss would push the Aggies down one spot ahead of Vanderbilt.

Georgia has struggled regardless of the venue this season, but they’ve been even worse on the road. Their average points per game drops from 74.7 to 68.7 percent when they’re playing away from their home building. They are also averaging a 42.9 shooting percentage.

Not to mention the Aggies put up more of a fight against Ole Miss on the road than the Bulldogs did at home. Something is broken with this Georgia team to the point that nothing short of an otherworldly performance from Hammonds or Nicolas Claxton can pull them through in this game. Those odds are simply too long to choose them as the side pick. Give me the Aggies in this game.

Prediction: Texas A&M Aggies (-5)

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The under is 7-0 in the last seven head-to-head meetings between the Bulldogs and Aggies. Georgia obviously lacks the same offensive efficiency on the road, and the Aggies are holding opponents to 71.2 points per game at home. Considering the Aggies are only averaging 72.2 points per game, they’ll have to turn this contest into an ugly, mostly defensive battle to have any real shot at coming away with the victory. I’ll take the under in this game.

Prediction: Under (148)
