TCU nearly upsets Oklahoma
TCU was able to limit the Oklahoma offense this past weekend, but still came up short in a 28-24 road loss. The Horned Frogs have dropped three of their last four to fall to 5-6 on the season and 3-5 in the Big 12. TCU is also 4-7 against the spread and 7-4 with the over.
The Horned Frogs are middle of the road on both offense and defense this year. TCU is putting up 31.5 points and 417.7 yards per game while allowing 27 points and 347 yards per contest. Max Duggan has thrown for 1,933 yards and 15 touchdowns while also rushing for 532 yards. Darius Anderson is the team’s leading rusher with 792 yards and six touchdowns. Sewo Olonilua has also rushed for 507 yards and seven scores. Jalen Reagor is the top receiver with 37 catches for 554 yards and five touchdowns. Garret Wallow is leading the defense with 113 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
West Virginia falls again
West Virginia continued its struggles last weekend with a 20-13 loss at home to Oklahoma State. The Mountaineers have scored 20 or less in five of their last six games. WVU is now 4-7 on the season, 2-6 in the Big 12, 4-5-2 against the spread and 7-4 with the under.
Offense has been a big issue for the Mountaineers this year. They are averaging just 20.6 points and 329.2 yards per game. Defensively, WVU is allowing 29.9 points and 409.4 yards per game. Austin Kendall has been leading the team with 1,989 passing yards and 12 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. However, Jarret Doege has started recent games and has 660 passing yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions. Sam James is the team’s leading receiver with 66 catches for 663 yards and two touchdowns. Leddie Brown is the leading rusher with 320 yards.
College Football Betting Trends
The Horned Frogs are just 10-23 against the spread in their last 33 games on grass and 7-21 ATS in their last 28 home games.
The Mountaineers are 4-11 against the spread in their last 15 games on grass and 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine Friday games.
The home team has won four straight games in this series, but West Virginia is 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings. The Mountaineers are a mess on offense, but their defense has managed to keep them competitive against the likes of Oklahoma State and Kansas State. TCU is a team that has played to the level of its competition most of the year. Their last six games, win or lose, have been decided by 10 points or less. TCU certainly looks like the better team on paper, but the Horned Frogs haven’t been able to pull away from opponents and I think WVU will be able to keep within reach and cover the spread.
