College Basketball Betting Trends
The Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. Oklahoma State is 2-7 ATS in its last nine games following a straight up win.
The Horned Frogs are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings. Texas Christian is 3-9 ATS in its last 12 Big 12 games.
The Horned Frogs have lost six of their last eight games straight up and it took an entire week to recover from the triple overtime loss at West Virginia. But with a lot to play for and against an Oklahoma State squad that has had a dismal season overall, I'm expecting TCU to rise to the occasion here. The Horned Frogs defend the 3-pointer well and it should limit one of the better aspects of what the Cowboys offer.
