Top ways to bet on Texas A&M football

You know the odds. You know you’d like to bet on Aggies football. The question that now needs to be answered is simple: Which bet type are you going to use? 

Below, we look at four of the most popular bet types in college football. If you’d like to learn more about any of them, you can follow the links below to get an in-depth explainer on that specific topic.

Texas A&M Aggies moneyline bets

This is the most common bet type and arguably the best known, though not everyone is aware it is called a moneyline. This bet gives you two teams playing against each other and asks you to choose which one is going to win. If you’re right, you will get winnings based on the sportsbook odds that you locked in when you finalized your bet.

FanDuel is one of the most popular sportsbooks in the United States, and here in Texas, it has put together a large following. FanDuel offers a nice variety of moneyline bets for NCAA football, including on the Aggies and their upcoming opponent. You’ll also discover FanDuel fields very competitive odds compared to its competition.

Here’s an example of a possible moneyline bet you could find at FanDuel Sportsbook in Texas post regulation:

  • Texas A&M Aggies           -135
  • Arkansas Razorbacks    +210

The first thing we see when looking at this bet is which teams are playing, and we can immediately tell which team is the underdog and which is the favorite to win. How? Well, negative odds, like the -135 carried by Texas A&M in this example, tell us the oddsmakers believe the Aggies will win. Positive odds, like Arkansas’ +210, show us they are the underdog.

As we mentioned above, a successful bet on either team will pay out based on the odds. Negative numbers show us how much we need to bet in order to win $100. Positive numbers show us how much we could win by betting $100. So if you bet $135 on Texas A&M to win the game and they do, then your payout would be $235. That includes the return of your original bet amount, plus your $100 in winnings. If you were to bet $100 on the Razorbacks and won, then you would get back $310, which is your original stake plus the $210 in profit.

Texas A&M Aggies point spread bets

While the moneyline bet is the simplest for gambling newcomers to understand, the point spread is a favorite among experts and more experienced hobbyists.

In many sports, and especially college football, moneyline bets can be very unbalanced in favor of the more dominant team. That’s because football programs in the NCAA are definitely not created equal.

To offset that massive lopsidedness, NCAA football point spreads afford a more “even” approach for bettors. Oddsmakers assign an expected number of points by which they think the favorite will win. Either you choose to bet on the favorite winning by that amount or more, or you go with the underdog keeping the game closer than that spread (or winning outright themselves).

DraftKings Sportsbook has some of the most competitive lines when it comes to point spreads. You’ll find DK’s oddsmakers are darn good at their predictions, but there is almost always value to be found by the bettor.

Here’s an example of a fictional point spread bet you could find at DraftKings TX online sportsbook:

The numbers to the right of the team names show two things: the point spread and the odds for your bet. In this case, oddsmakers are predicting the Aggies will win by at least eight points. If the Red Raiders can keep the game closer than that and lose by fewer than eight points, then bets in their favor will win.

In either case, the odds stand at -110, which means a $110 bet would pay out $210. Keep in mind that you don’t have to bet that much or that little. A $250 bet, for example, would pay out $477.27, which is your original bet returned to you plus winnings totaling $227.27.

Texas A&M Aggies totals bets

Totals bets are also known as over/unders, and the terms are pretty much interchangeable across the industry. With this bet type, you don’t pick the game winner. Instead, you’ll be given a predicted total number of points for the game. You choose if you believe the two teams will combine to score over or under that combined point threshold.

BetMGM Sportsbook is an industry hub for popular totals bets. You’ll be able to find nearly every major college football game, as well as other major sports contests.

Here’s an example of what a BetMGM college football over/under might look like:

  • Over         48.5 (-110)
  • Under      48.5 (-115)

The information we can gather right away is the sportsbook is expecting the two teams playing to score 48.5 points. That half-point ensures there are always winners and losers of the bet because the game can’t actually end on 48.5 combined points.

Bettors who go for the over will have -110 odds, which means a $110 bet would pay out $210, including $100 in winnings. They’ll need a combined score of 49 points or higher. Those looking at the under need 48 points or fewer to win. Oddsmakers are expecting this outcome to be slightly more likely, which is why it carries -115 odds.

Texas A&M Aggies prop bets

Props are side bets focused on very specific events in a game or season. Some are serious and based on statistics and outcomes, while others are more lighthearted and less focused on the game itself. In either case, sportsbooks have their own approaches when it comes to props.

Caesars sports betting is a firm believer in offering up a nice selection of prop bets. You’ll come across both fun and serious bets. One example of a possible prop bet for Texas A&M is below.

Will Texas A&M have the final scoring drive of the game?

  • Yes (+165) or No (+145)

As you can see, this prop bet has nothing to do with the actual outcome of the game. It focuses on a very specific possible event. These types of bets are difficult to research, which is one of the reasons we suggest you don’t use prop bets as a major part of your betting strategy.

Texas A&M Aggies coaching staff

When you think about the historical popularity of football in Texas, it isn’t hard to believe that the Texas A&M team first took the field in 1894. Since then, the sport has only grown in the Lone Star State, and the fanbase has grown with it.

With such high expectations on Texas-based programs, it’s no surprise the Aggies try to have one of the country’s best coaching staffs.

  • Head coach: Jimbo Fisher
  • Assistant head coach: Elijah Robinson
  • Offensive coordinator: Bobby Petrino
  • Co-offensive coordinator: James Coley
