College Basketball Betting Trends
The Horned Frogs are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games overall. Texas Christian is 4-1 ATS in its last five Monday games.
The Red Raiders are 8-21-2 ATS in their last 31 games overall. Texas Tech is 0-4-1 ATS in its last five games overall.
The Red Raiders have struggled lately despite not playing overwhelming competition. Even against Arkansas at home, they had to rally back. Texas Christian is better than all of the previous three opponents and are coming off wins over Texas and Florida. I think the Horned Frogs are starting to hit their stride and their defense should keep them in this one throughout. I'm taking the points with TCU here.
