Cokin’s SEC Free Play: Arkansas at Texas A&M

WagerTalk handicapper Dave Cokin has hit 73.3-percent of his 5% plays over the last five months. Dave’s next 5% TOP PLAY is on Saturday’s card and available now. For a free play, let’s go to the SEC where Texas A&M will be hosting Arkansas this afternoon.

Event: (653) Arkansas at (654) Texas A&M
Sport/League: NCAAB
Date/Time: March 7, 2020 4PM EST
Play: Texas A&M 4.0 (-112)

This hasn’t been a good season for Texas A&M, but it wasn’t supposed to be. Actually, I like what I’m seeing down the stretch from the Aggies. Buzz Williams is putting the pieces together and A&M has clearly played its best basketball of late. Arkansas has had a decent campaign and that’s no surprise with Mussleman now running the show. But the Razorbacks still have one ugly trait from the prior regime, and that’s their shaky road ledger. The Razorbacks have just two SEC road wins, and those were both very close games. This looks like a really close game that could go wither way. Getting more than one possession with the home dog is attractive to me, so it’s Texas A&M plus the points.
