The Texas Christian Horned Frogs were thought to be a factor in the Big 12 football but they were a bit of an unknown. The Horned Frogs come off a 34-10 defeat at West Virginia as a 5.5 point underdog with the Mountaineers holding a 389-300 yardage advantage with three forced turnovers. Horned Frogs quarterback Kenny Hill connected on 18-31 for 148 yards and a touchdown and interception with nine receivers catching passes in a short air attack. The Horned Frogs did have some ability to run the ball behind 103 yards from Kyle Hicks but everything the offense did was of a short nature.
The over is 10-1 in Texas Tech last 11 vs. a team with a winning record and Texas Tech are 1-6 ATS vs. a team with a winning record while Texas Tech are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 conference games. TCU are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 conference games and TCU are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games while TCU are 0-4 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
I think Texas Tech doesn't play a lick of defense but they sure do know how to score and they should do enough scoring to stay within the number…
