Texas is 4-1 against the spread against the Big 12, 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games, and 4-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. TCU is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games and 5-11 against the spread in their last 16 road games. The home team has covered the point spread in 5 of the last meetings of these 2 teams.
This one is a coin flip but I can see TCU being more up for this and grabbing the win on the road.
