The Texas Tech Red Raiders and TCU Horned Frogs both look for a much needed win as they meet Saturday in Big 12 week 10 college football action at Amon G. Carter Stadium.

Krishon Merriweather leads the Texas Tech Red Raiders with 42 tackles, Eli Howard has 2.5 sacks and Alex Hogan has one interception.
The TCU Horned Frogs also need a win here to get back to a .500 record. The TCU Horned Frogs have lost five straight home games. Max Duggan is completing 68.1 percent of his passes for 1,040 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. Duggan and Matthew Downing have combined for six touchdown passes this season.

The Red Raiders are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Horned Frogs are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 conference games and 8-24 ATS in their last 32 home games. The over is 9-3-2 in Red Raiders last 14 conference games. The Red Raiders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Texas Tech Red Raiders have the offensive firepower to hang around in this game, but they've been getting blasted defensively this season and are a rough 2-4 against the spread on the season. The TCU Horned Frogs are a balanced football team statistically and possibly turned their season around last week with a solid road win over Baylor. TCU hasn't won at home in a while and you feel this team has the momentum need to finally end that drought. I just don't trust a Texas Tech team on the road that doesn't play defense and can allow a game to get away rather quickly.
I'll lay the chalk with TCU at home.
