shimonek_textech

The TCU Horned Frogs are 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS in their last four road games against the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The Horned Frogs hope for bettor luck in Lubbock this Saturday facing Texas Tech.

SHARK BITES
  • The visiting team is 2-6 ATS in the last eight games in this matchup.
  • TCU is 10-2 SU in its last 12 games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in TCU’s last six games against its conference.

TCU didn’t allow a single point to Oklahoma in the second half of its road game against the Sooners last Saturday. Unfortunately for the Horned Frogs, the damage had already been done as Baker Mayfield led the team to 38 points in the first half en route to a 38-20 Oklahoma victory. Despite the loss, the Horned Frogs can still advance to the Big 12 championship game with season-ending wins over Texas Tech and Baylor.

Texas Tech snapped out of an 0-4 SU and ATS slump with last Saturday’s 38-24 road win over Baylor. Senior quarterback Nic Shimonek has had a strong season with 3,314 passing yards and 28 passing touchdowns, but he will face the Big 12’s toughest passing defense this Saturday. The Red Raiders are 0-9 SU in their last nine home games against teams with winning records.
