SMU vs. TCU Prediction

SMU vs. TCU College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread 12/5/17

Is No. 20 TCU capable of picking up another win at home when it takes on SMU tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, TCU is favored at home tonight, as the Horned Frogs are getting odds of -3.5 points against SMU. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 136.5 points. Tonight’s game will take place from the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.

SMU is coming off a 72-55 win over USC this past weekend to improve to 7-2 on the season. The Mustangs are 3-2 against the spread and are getting set to play in their first true road game. SMU is averaging 56.3 points per game on offense this season while allowing just 56.3 points per game. Shake Milton is leading the team with 18.7 points and 4 assists per game while Jarrey Foster is adding 14.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per contest.

TCU is off to an 8-0 start to the season following a 92-66 victory over Yale. The Horned Frogs are 4-4 against the spread, alternating between covering and not in all eight games. They covered in the win over Yale. TCU is scoring 86.9 points per game on offense while allowing 70.1 per game. The Horned Frogs are being led by Vladimir Brodziansky, who is averaging 14.4 points and 4 rebounds per game. Kenrich Williams is adding 12.4 points and 10.1 rebounds per contest.

Bet on SMU vs. TCU

SMU has won five straight meetings over TCU, going 3-2 against the spread in those five games. The Mustangs are 21-6 against the spread in their last 27 games following a win and 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 road games. While SMU is playing in its first true road game, I think they handle themselves just fine. TCU is building toward some good things, but I don’t think they are a slam dunk to avoid an upset loss here and there. The public betting is siding with TCU at home, but I am going to take a chance on SMU.
