The 9th Texas Tech Red Raiders are on the road this afternoon hunting for their fifth straight win over the TCU Horned Frogs. The game is huge for the Red Raiders, who are currently second in the conference with Baylor at 11-4. The Kansas Jayhawks lead the Big 12 with a score of 12-2 while TCU is fifth with a score of 6-8. The Red Raiders entered the weekend with a victory over the Oklahoma Sooners 66-42 in a very impressive opening game. The Horned Frogs, on the other hand, are losing to another competitor in the state, the Texas Longhorns. Here are the odds for this Big 12 match, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.
Total: 131 (Above -110 / Under -110)
While this game may seem like a bad game for the Red Raiders, there is one problem that needs to be addressed. Texas Tech is one of the dominant teams at home but falls a little short when asked to step onto the road. This is evidenced by the fact that all 4 of the Red Raiders’ losses in the Big 12 happened in the top lane. The Red Raiders are also having 1-3 ATS on the road this season as betting buffs. Overall, they are a phenomenal team with a 20-8 margin. But the fact that they only make up 25% of the time are road favorites. TCU, meanwhile, is covering at 50% as the home team and the underdog home team. Horned Frogs are also very solid defensively, ranking 30th and having the 19th best counter-attack defense in the nation. Their offense needs a lot of work but Texas Tech has a fairly low scoring offense, at 73.4 PPG, for a Top 10 ranked team. They are also first on defense and ranked 13th in total confrontation points.
I would like to take a leap of faith and get the TCU straight up but I would err on the side of bank management and get the Frog into the mainstream.
Pick: TCU Horned Frog +5 (-110)
