The LSU Tigers were one of two teams to defeat the Texas A&M Aggies in 2012 and they were able to do so because they forced eventual Heisman trophy winner, Johnny Manziel into five turnovers and harass him all afternoon in the 24-19 Tiger’s win.

This game last year remains the only game in the 23-game career for Manziel where he was unable to score a touchdown and Vegas certainly remembers as they have set the line at 3.5-4 points with LSU as the favorite. Home field is worth three points, so this is a relative pick ‘em for the game at  Tiger Stadium that will kickoff at 2:30 p.m. CT Saturday.

Texas A&M is 5-5 against the spread this season and LSU is 4-5-1, but only 2 wins against the spread have come in their past eight games and LSU is 2-5 against the spread in its last seven games at Death Valley. Conversely, the Aggies have won their past five games straight up, and are 4-2 against the spread in their last six games.

Texas A&M is looking for its first win over LSU since Sept. 2, 1995 in a game that is a must-win for LSU for Les Miles to keep his hopes of a fourth straight 10-win season alive and A&M needs this win to keep their hopes of a BCS bowl berth alive.

Those who have cast their vote on Oddsharks for who they think will cover the spread are 58 percent in favor of Texas A&M at time of publishing.
