Texas A&M football enters week 10 needing to bounce back against the Auburn Tigers, here is a prediction for that game and the games involving SEC West schools.

Texas A&M football let us all down last week by getting blown out by Mississippi State. We all were pretty confident heading into that game the Aggies matched up with the Bulldogs on paper.

However, games aren’t played on paper. The Bulldogs passing game, which was non-existent in conference play to that point, went off on the Aggies No. 85 passing defense. Texas A&M slowed down the Mississippi State rushing attack but couldn’t get off the field on third down. They gave up the first three touchdowns on third down.

They absolutely have to bounce back against Auburn.

There are a couple of incredible games in the SEC West this week, but before we get into the rest of Week 10, here is the recap of our Week 9 picks.

Week 9 Recap:

Jeff Shull: 7-8 overall

3-2 straight-up, 4-6 gambling (2-3 ATS, 2-3 O/U)

Robert Ford: 5-10 overall

2-3 straight-up, 3-7 gambling (0-5 ATS, 3-2 O/U )

Andy Loughmiller: 9-6 overall

2-3 straight-up, 7-3 gambling (4-1 ATS, 3-2 O/U)

Luke Leifker: 9-6 overall

3-2 straight-up, 6-4 gambling (2-3 ATS, 4-1 O/U)

Tiebreaker goes to the gambling winner, which is Andy. Congrats!

We took somewhat of a beating overall compared to last week. There were some tough games to call and Vanderbilt vs Arkansas turning into a shootout surprised us all. Only two of us predicted Vandy would cover and all four of us took the under.

Here’s a quick look at the overall standings since Week 5.

Overall Standings

Jeff Shull: 42-30 overall

17-7 straight-up, 25-23 gambling (14-10 ATS, 11-13 O/U)

Robert Ford: 41-31 overall

16-8 straight-up, 25-23 gambling (11-13 ATS, 14-10 O/U )

Luke Leifker: 34-26 overall

13-7 straight-up, 21-19 gambling (8-12 ATS, 13-7 O/U)

Andy Loughmiller: 36-21 overall

13-6 straight-up, 23-15 gambling (11-8 ATS, 12-7 O/U)

Mary Catherine McCord: 18-9 overall

Hope you’re betting with Andy so far this season, he is crushing it on the gambling picks!

We went back to picking just the SEC West games this week, and we’ll get started with a matchup that’s fairly easy to pick straight up.
