USA TODAY Sports

Washington has some great players on their roster, led by Markelle Fultz (22.2 PPG; 7.2 APG; 5.8 RPG), David Crisp (14.8 PPG) and Matisse Thybulle (13.6 PPG). The Huskies’ Noah Dickerson (11.6 PPG; 5.8 RPG) and Dominic Green (11.0 PPG) are averaging in double figures as well this season. 

As for TCU, they’re coming into Saturday’s game with an unblemished 5-0 record on the year. The Horned Frogs took out St. Thomas 82-64 to start out the year, then rattled off wins over Alabama State 98-62, Jacksonville State 79-60 and Illinois State 80-71 before Friday’s Global Sports Classic win over UNLV 63-59. 

TCU also has a strong group of players at their disposal this year, led by Desmond Bane (12.4 PPG; 4.2 RPG), Vladimir Brodziansky (10.8 PPG; 4.6 RPG) and Brandon Parrish (10.6 PPG; 4.6 RPG). Jaylen Fisher (10.6 PPG 5.4 APG) and Alex Robinson (10.4 PPG; 5.2 APG) are also playing well for the Frogs. 

Washington is 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven versus the Big 12, and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 neutral-site games. Washington is also 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a straight-up win, and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games. 

Meanwhile, Texas Christian is 6-1 ATS in their last seven neutral-site games, and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games versus a team with a winning percentage above .600. Texas Christian is also 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games versus a team with a winning straight-up record and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight-up win. 

TCU is getting a slight advantage in the spread here, but it’s as close to a pick-‘em game as you’ll see. Both teams are quite deep and have numerous players putting up points so far, so we should see a well-rounded performance on both sides in a close game. I’ll go with Texas Christian here, but honestly it’s a coin-flip game that could go either way easily.
