TCU is a perfect 11-0 to start the season, including 8-0 at home. The Horned Frogs are coming off a 91-72 win over Texas Southern. They have covered in their last three lined games and are 6-4 against the spread this season. TCU is putting up 87.6 points per game on offense this season while allowing 72.4 per contest. Kenrich Williams is leading TCU with 14.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game while Vladimir Brodziansky is adding 13.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.
William & Mary has won six of its last seven games coming into tonight’s contest. The Tribe are now 7-3 on the season while posting a 4-1 record against the spread. William & Mary is averaging 81.6 points per game on offense while giving up 85.5 per game on defense. Nathan Knight is leading the team with 19.6 points and 7.8 rebounds per game while three others are scoring at least 13 points per contest.
These two have no recent meetings to consider. TCU is certainly off to a nice start, but the Horned Frogs haven’t had the toughest schedule thus far. They also haven’t been able to dispatch most opponents by 20 points or more. William & Mary isn’t a great defensive team, but the Pride can score. The public betting is siding with TCU tonight, but I will take the road team and the points.
