How to bet on Texas A&M basketball lines
You’ll discover a wide range of betting odds at Texas online sportsbooks, especially with a sport as popular as college basketball. Below, learn more about the most popular bet types: moneylines, point spreads, props and more.
What is the Texas A&M basketball spread?
The most popular college basketball bet is the point spread. Unlike the moneyline, which is sometimes so lopsided that there isn’t much value in betting it, the point spread “evens” the playing field by assigning the favorite a required winning margin.
When betting the point spread, you are betting on if the favorite can cover the spread by winning by the assigned number of points or more. Or you can bet on whether the underdog will prevent that. You’ll get odds for each team, with the negative point spread indicating the favorite and the positive spread signaling the underdog.
Online sportsbooks like BetMGM have large selections of point spread bets for NCAA basketball. It offers competitive odds along with other Texas sportsbooks and those from Las Vegas.
Below is an example of a college basketball point spread from the BetMGM Sportsbook app :
- Texas Longhorns -2.5 (-110)
- Texas A&M Aggies +2.5 (-110)
In this example, the Longhorns must win by three points to cover the spread. A $110 bet on the game would pay out $210 for either side, which includes the original stake returned to you plus $100 in winnings.
What is the Texas A&M basketball moneyline?
The moneyline bet is the most straightforward wager around. In its simplest form, the moneyline features two teams and you pick which team will win. That’s it.
If you’re right, you’ll get a payout based on how much you bet and the odds when you finalized your bet.
Every online Texas sportsbook has moneyline bets. Take the DraftKings betting site, for example. It offers up a great selection of moneyline bets for all major sports, with the most popular like the NFL, college football and college basketball getting the most attention.
Here’s an example of a moneyline bet you might encounter while using Texas betting apps or online sportsbooks:
- Texas A&M Aggies -180
- Texas Tech Red Raiders +220
You can immediately see which team is expected to win the game based on the odds assigned to each. Negative odds, like the Aggies’ -180, tell us they are the favorites in the eyes of the oddsmakers. Positive odds, like those assigned to Texas Tech in our example, indicate the underdog.
Negative numbers also tell us what we need to wager to win $100. So a $180 bet on Texas A&M would potentially pay out $280, which is the original bet amount plus the $100 profit. Positive odds show how much we stand to win for every $100 we bet. A $100 bet on the underdog would pay out $320 if successful.
You can bet more or less than those amounts, of course. No matter what you bet, the payout will always be calculated based on that dollar amount and the odds when you finalize your bet slip.
Texas A&M Aggies totals bets
A totals bet is also known in the industry as the over/under. You are given a total number of points the oddsmakers predict the two teams playing will combine to score. As the bettor, your job is to determine if they will be able to score over or under that set total.
At Texas sportsbooks like FanDuel, you will find the totals bets are well populated and offer up some nice value if you’re willing to look for it. Remember not to automatically bet the under if the point total is higher than usual, or vice versa with the over. Always do your research before betting.
Here’s an example of a college basketball over/under wager:
- Over 145.5 (-110)
- Under 145.5 (-110)
You don’t need to concern yourself with which team will win the game. Instead, focus on how well the offenses and defenses from both sides are playing and use available data to make your determination.
Both sides of this bet have -110 odds, which means you need to wager $110 to get $100 in profit.
Texas A&M Aggies prop bets
Prop bets are one of the more popular bet types because, compared to the aforementioned standard bets, they’re typically more varied, less serious and offer up a different experience.
Every Texas sportsbook will offer up its own variety and amount of prop bets, though you will typically find a nice selection for the games featuring the most popular NCAA basketball teams.
These can be notoriously difficult to research, so try to find the right prop bets that allow you to find enough data for an educated decision.
Caesars Sportsbook online has been known to offer up prop bets for the most popular games on the NCAA basketball slate. Being based in Las Vegas, Caesars has odds comparable with any other sportsbook you’re going to find.
Here’s an example of one possible prop bet:
- Will the game go into overtime? Yes (+200) or No (-300)
The odds for prop bets work the same as in our other examples. The positive numbers show you how much you stand to win for every $100 you bet, while the negative numbers indicate the amount you need to stake for a chance to win $100 in profits.
