TCU Horned Frogs vs Texas Longhorns Big 12 Week 4 Odds & Pick
Why Bet On TCU
Over the past four seasons, TCU has beaten Texas by an average of 30 points while not allowing more than 10 per game. That adds up to a four-game head-to-head winning streak. Can TCU keep their recent success against the Longhorns going?
The Frogs won their season opener 55-7 at home over FCS team Southern University. Then in Week 2, TCU notched a rainy 30-point win at SMU. Last week after leading Ohio State 21-13, the Frogs allowed three TDs in a four-minute span early in the second half. After that 40-28 loss, this week’s tilt against the Longhorns will make or break TCU’s season.
Why Bet On Texas
Last week, Texas had its biggest win under head football coach Tom Herman. The Longhorns knocked off 22nd-ranked USC Trojans by 37-14. Is Texas a smart bet to beat two ranked teams in a row?
The Longhorns D will have to harass TCU QB Shawn Robinson into making mistakes. Last week Robinson’s lowest point was when he missed a lateral to his running back and it was returned for a touchdown by the Buckeyes. The talented QB gets away with mistakes early, but late game errors can seal the win for Texas.
TCU vs Texas Big 12 Week Pick
Big 12 conference games always bring out the best in both cross-state rivals. While I am staying away from the 3-point spread in this game, I am going to bet the 47½ OVER.
