Texas A&M vs. Northern Iowa Betting Info
Spread: Texas A&M – 6
Moneyline: Texas A&M – 274
Northern Iowa hit a buzzer-beater from half court to defeat Texas. Texas A&M cruised to an easy victory over Wisconsin-Green Bay.
Now the two winning squads face off in a Round of 32 battle that might actually be a lot closer than people may expect.
Northern Iowa is a perfect 9-0 SU and an almost-perfect 8-0-1 ATS in its last nine game against teams with winning records and the Panthers are also 12-1-1 ATS in their last 14.
Under bettors could find this one particularly appealing.
The total has gone OVER in four of Texas A&M’s last five games, but in Northern Iowa’s last three with a closing total of 127-plus, the O/U has gone 0-3. History could also help the Panthers out a bit. Since 2010, No. 3 seeds have gone 3-4 against No. 11 seeds. Those aren’t great odds, but they’re not a metaphorical death sentence for the Panthers either.
