Pamela Maldonado gives her Power Play for Week 9 of the college football season.
PAM MALDONADO: Hey, Yahoo Sportsbook, I'm Pam Maldonado, with my week nine power play for college football.
Give me the Texas A&M Aggies plus 2 and 1/2 at home to the Ole Miss Rebels. The Aggies scoring defense is a legitimate. At home, the Aggies are top 10 in touchdowns allowed.
In 3 home games this season, the Aggies have allowed only five total touchdowns, instead forcing four field goals. In the second half of those home games, the Aggies defense is allowing an average of 8 points per game to opponents.
Ole Miss is on the second leg of back-to-back road games. And just last week in the second half against one of the best second half defenses in the nation in LSU, the Rebels put up 2 points, two turnovers on downs, zero points scored. The Ole Miss scoring production is highly reliant on the run, with 26 total rushing scores to just 13 passing touchdowns.
The Aggies defense thus far has given up a total of six rushing scores, only two of which came at home. If you can force this Rebels offense to throw, quarterback Jaxson Dart, not really throwing darts. Seven interceptions on the season, throwing at least one interception in four games straight. The Aggies defense plus the 12th man at home will win this game. Give me the Aggies plus 2 and 1/2 at home plus 120 on the moneyline.
