After leading the Texas A&M Aggies to their first nine-win campaign since 2013, former Florida State national championship-winning head coach Jimbo Fisher, would like nothing better than to see his new team become a perennial title contender like the one he built in Tallahassee just a few years ago.
With the 2019 college football season quickly approaching, Fisher and the Aggies have some high hopes, even if they do play in the toughest conference in all of college football.

Why Will Top Their Win Total Odds?
There are some great reasons to back Texas A&M to reach eight victories to top their win total odds in 2019. First, the Aggies have a head coach that knows how to win games in Fisher, who went 83-23 in eight seasons at Florida State while leading the Seminoles to the 2013 national championship and a semifinal appearance in the 2014 CFP.
In addition to that, the Aggies also have some continuity at quarterback with now, junior signal-caller Kellen Mond looking to build on his breakout campaign after passing for 3,107 yards with 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Mond also has a group of tested receivers that is led by Quartney Davis (45 catches, 7 TDs). Texas A&M also has some solid experience returning an the offensive line in the forms of junior tackles Dan Moore Jr. and Carson Green and junior guard Jared Hocker.
Lastly, the Aggies experienced some confidence-boosting success a year ago by beating LSU for the first time since they resumed their series in 2011 while winning their first bowl game by routing NC State 52-13 in the Gator Bowl.
Why Won’t Top Their Win Total Odds?
There are also some good reasons to pick the Aggies to come up short against their win total odds. First, Texas A&M needs to find a replacement for all-time program rushing leader Trayveon Williams. Sophomore Jashaun Corbin and 230-pound UCF transfer Cordarrian Richardson will get the first cracks at becoming the starter, but finding a back of Williams’ caliber is going to be difficult.
Fisher also needs to find a suitable replacement for All-American tight end Jace Sternberger, not to mention the fact that the Aggies have serious question marks at linebacker and in the secondary. Defensive tackle Justin Madubuike, who posted 5.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles for a loss, is the only full-time returning starter among the front seven while junior linebacker Buddy Johnson has the most experience at the position with just four career starts. Cornerbacks Debione Renfro and Charles Oliver and safety Derrick Tucker all had sub par 2018 seasons, so there are question marks on the back end of the Aggies’ defense as well.
I’ve always liked Jimbo Fisher, but I’ve got the Aggies suffering at least four losses in 2019. Texas A&M has some super difficult road dates at Clemson in their second game of the season before closing out their 2019 campaign with a pair of road dates at Georgia and LSU. A home loss against Alabama is also looming in their sixth game of the season.
If the Aggies avoid another loss, they’ll finish at 8-4 to narrowly top their win total odds. However, Texas A&M also takes on Auburn and hits the road to face Mississippi State in consecutive weeks and both of those teams won an identical eight games a year ago. I’m going to pick the Aggies to finish with eight victories, but I’ll be the first to admit that this win total wager is a tough call that could go either way, depending on just how Jimbo Fisher’s new starters perform in their respective roles this coming season.
