Texas Has Become The Best Bet In The Nation

Does Texas’ SU record leave a lot to be desired? Yes. However, the Longhorns are an astounding 7-1 ATS this season and have covered in seven straight heading into their battle with TCU this Saturday. To add more fuel to the fire, Texas will travel to Fort Worth as an underdog – a spot in which they have gone a perfect 3-0 ATS this season.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 4-1 SU and ATS in the last 5 games in this matchup.
  • TCU is 2-9 ATS in its last 11 games at home.
  • Texas is 24-10 SU in its last 34 games on the road against teams with winning records.

Texas struggled to score when these two programs met last season, as the Longhorns did not find the end zone once and lost 31-9. The TCU rushing attack carved up a lackluster Texas defense for 309 yards and four touchdowns.

It won’t be that easy this time around, as the Texas defense has been red-hot lately. The Longhorns have held their past two opponents to a combined 20 points while racking up five sacks and 16 tackles for a loss. The offense has not been nearly as consistent, struggling to score against Oklahoma State but then trouncing a bad Baylor squad.

TCU enters this game coming off its first loss of the season, an outing that saw the offense score just seven points. Quarterback Kenny Hill had his worst outing of the year, as he completed just 12 of his 25 passes while throwing two interceptions. However, the Horned Frogs defense continued to roll with the team allowing just 20 combined points in its past three.
