Who is the Public Backing?
As of Thursday morning, 67% of tickets are on the Sooners to cover the point spread on Saturday.
Injury Report: TCU linebacker Travin Howard is probable with an undisclosed injury, as is safety Niko Small (also undisclosed). That said, safety Nick Orr is suspended for the first half of the game and the team will be without running back Darius Anderson, who is out for the year with a foot injury. On the other side, Oklahoma defensive tackle Matt Romar is out with an undisclosed injury.
OUR PREDICTION: The under has hit in six of the last eight meetings between these two teams and is 7-1 in the Horned Frogs' last eight games overall. The under is 6-1 in TCU's last seven games in December, is 5-1 in its last six games following a win, and is 19-7 in its last 26 conference games.
On the other side, the under is 14-3-1 in the Sooners' last 18 games in December, is 6-1 in its last seven neutral site games, and is 6-2 in their last eight games versus a team with a winning record. The under cashed in the first meeting between these two teams a month ago and I see Saturday being another relatively low-scoring affair.
