TCU vs Baylor College Football Betting
To bet on the Baylor Bears Friday is to bet that TCU will lose its first regular season game since 2008.
While it's not impossible (and while many bettors seem to be throwing their support behind the Bears), it's a risky proposition betting against one of NCAA football's premiere programs at Floyd Casey Stadium.
Sophomore quarterback Casey Pachall takes over for Andy Dalton at TCU, which will move to the Big East next season. But they lost a lot of seniors and may be ripe for the taking by Baylor.
Betting Line: The Horned Frogs opened as 7-point favorites at sportsbooks, but the number has been bet down to -3.5 by Baylor backers. The total was listed at 57 but has dropped 3.5 points at shops such as 5Dimes.
