The Line: TCU Horned Frogs +7.5 -- Over/Under: 125.5
The Baylor Bears and TCU Horned Frogs meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.
The Baylor Bears have lost just one game since November 15. The Baylor Bears are averaging 71.7 points on 43.1 percent shooting and allowing 58.2 points on 38.2 percent shooting. Jared Butler is averaging 15.8 points and 3.1 assists while MaCio Teague is averaging 13.8 points and 4.8 rebounds. Freddie Gillespie is grabbing 9.2 rebounds and Davion Mitchell is dishing three assists. The Baylor Bears are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 69.5 percent from the free throw line. The Baylor Bears are allowing 30.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.9 rebounds per game. The Baylor Bears have yet to lose a true road game this season.
The TCU Horned Frogs need a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The TCU Horned Frogs are averaging 72.4 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 61.3 points on 40.6 percent shooting. Desmond Bane is averaging 15.9 points and 3.5 assists while RJ Nembhard is averaging 12.4 points and four rebounds. Kevin Samuel is the third double-digit scorer and Edric Dennis is dishing 3.6 assists. The TCU Horned Frogs are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 63.8 percent from the free throw line. The TCU Horned Frogs are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.5 rebounds per game. The TCU Horned Frogs have split their last four home games.
The favorite is 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The TCU Horned Frogs play their best ball at home where they win by an average of 9.9 points and allow 40.9 percent shooting from the field, but the problem is you're never quite sure which TCU team you're going to get. The Baylor Bears not only win games at an elite clip, but they've proven they can win on the road where they win by an average of 9.1 points and are 7-1 against the spread. The TCU Horned Frogs are 7-9 against the spread at home and 9-18 against the spread on the season. I have to sid with consistency and lay the chalk with Baylor on the road.
