Key Betting Trends
The underdog is a perfect 6-0 against the spread in the last six meetings between these two teams. So take the Bears right? As Lee Corso would say, "Not so fast." Baylor is winless at the betting window in its last five games versus TCU and 0-4 against the number in its last four trips to Fort Worth.
OUR PREDICTION: Even though the over has cashed in five of the last six meetings between these two teams, neither of these squads is scoring much right now. The under is a perfect 4-0 in the Bears' last four games overall, is 4-1 in their last five road games, and is 8-3 in their last 11 games coming off a loss.
On the other side, the under is 4-1 in the Horned Frogs' last five games, is 5-0 in their last five games played in November, and is 5-0 in their last five games coming off a win. The under has also cashed in 16 of TCU's last 21 games overall and in 20 of its last 27 conference games.
