Boykin won't start for TCU, spread jumps
With the announcement that quarterback Trevone Boykin won't start, the point spread for tonight's TCU-Oklahoma game has jumped five points.
The Sooners opened the day as a 12-point home favorite versus the Horned Frogs but once reports surfaced that Boykin would not start for TCU, Oklahoma jumped to a 17-point favorite according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI. The total has also dropped four full points from the opening number of 67, and is now sitting at 63.
Originally Oklahoma opened as a 10-point favorite after upsetting Baylor last Saturday night in Waco. Boykin isn't the only TCU player banged up, as receiver Josh Doctson will miss the final two regular season games for the Frogs due to a wrist injury.
The Horned Frogs are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Sooners while the under has cashed in four of the last five meetings between these two teams.
