Texas is 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games, 3-7-1 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, and 0-4 against the spread in their last four home games against a team with a losing road record. TCU is 4-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 6-2 against the spread following a double-digit home loss, and 1-4 against the spread in their last four road games. The last five games between these two have been under the total.
Games between these two seem to usually go under and I see this one being more of the same.
