Belmont vs. TCU Pick
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, TCU is favored at home tonight, as the Horned Frogs are getting odds of -12 points against Belmont. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 149 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.
Belmont is coming off a 74-66 loss to Lipscomb on Monday to fall to 4-3 on the season. The Bruins are 4-2 against the spread, covering in all three games they have been an underdog. Belmont is averaging 76.3 points per game this season while allowing 73.4 per game. Amanze Egekeze is leading the team with 18.3 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest. Dylan Windler is adding 15.7 points and 11.6 rebounds per game.
TCU is coming off an 89-79 win over St. Bonaventure last weekend to improve to 6-0 on the season. The Horned Frogs are 3-3 against the spread. TCU is putting up 86 points per game this season while allowing 69.8 per contest. Vladimir Brodziansky is leading TCU with 14.7 points per game while Kenrich Williams is adding 12.7 points and 10.2 rebounds per game.
These two have no recent meetings to consider tonight. TCU is 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 non-conference games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a win. The Horned Frogs are also 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against a winning team. Belmont is just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games. The public betting is siding with TCU tonight and I tend to agree. I don’t think Belmont has the horses to keep up with the Frogs tonight.
