College Basketball Betting Trends
The Horned Frogs are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall. TCU is 0-3-1 ATS in its last four games versus the Big 12.
The Sooners are 4-0 ATS in their last four Saturday games. Oklahoma is 6-0 ATS in its last six Saturday games.
Oklahoma has proven to be very tough to beat on its home floor and hung with Texas Tech out of the last game on the road. The Sooners have the eight-ranked defense nationally and should be able to slow down a TCU squad that is good but not great on both ends of the floor.
