Texas Longhorns at TCU Horned Frogs
Texas -1 at TCU: The oddsmakers are way off on this number. It should be closer to -5 or even -6.
Texas took last year’s meeting, 31-16. The Longhorns phoned in a 50-48 win over Kansas last week, giving starters a bit of rest. TCU comes off back-to-back road losses and no covers at Iowa State and Kansas State and now must face a Texas team that is 2-0 both SU and ATS as a visitor in 2019. The Horned Frogs just can’t keep pace offensively in this matchup.
If Texas has a weakness, it is their pass “D”. But, they are in little danger here, as TCU quarterback Max Duggan and the 96th ranked passing unit poses no threat.
TCU is 3-11 ATS the last 14 games played vs. conference opponents, 3-10 ATS the last 13 games played vs. teams with a winning record and 6-20 ATS the last 26 games played at home. TEXAS
