TCU vs BYU Betting Prediction

BYU comes into this game coming off of a huge win on the road against Kansas and they will be at home, where they have been great this season. The Cougars just knocked off Baylor in their last home game and they are scoring 82.6 points per game this season. TCU is coming off of a disappointing outing against Baylor, but they have been decent away from home in conference play. Both of these teams have very strong offensive attacks and we could see a shootout here, but I can’t go against BYU at home. Take the Cougars here.
