LSU vs Texas A&M College Basketball Betting Preview
LSU is on a lackluster skid as of late, losing 3 straight, and winning just 2 of their last 8 games. Last time out, they lost to Vanderbilt by 9 points. A reason for their loss would be the ability to not shoot behind the arc better than 25% and turning the ball over 16 times. They also let Vanderbilt get into a groove, shooting 45.6% from the field, 41.9% from the arc, and 58.8% from the free throw line. They also had 12 more assists than LSU and more second chance points. This has been how it has gone for LSU as of late, just being outworked in every aspect and area of the game. They will have to figure it out quickly or they will see their NCAA tournament hopes disappear quickly.
For the Aggies, they are no different, losing 6 straight games since January 15th. Last time out, they lost to the Missouri Tigers by 4 points, and they can thank their terrible defense for that. They let Missouri shoot 56.6% from the field and 38.5% from the arc, while being outrebounded by 8 boards. On a good note, A&M was careful with the basketball, only having 6 turnovers. If they want to stop the bleeding Tuesday night, they will have to do everything that worked in December, play good defense, crash the boards, limit turnovers and shoot the ball effectively. Yeah, it seems simple, but they have failed to do so for six straight games, which is absurd.

LSU vs Texas A&M Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
With both teams on a long skid, it’s pretty hard to say who has the upper hand in a must-need conference game for two bubble teams. Well, last time they played LSU won 70-64 in Baton Rouge. They shut down A&M’s offense and 3-point shots for the most part, while controlling the boards 38-30. LSU was the better team in every aspect and will look to replicate that in Texas when they face off Tuesday night.
