Fireworks expected when Sooners meet Horned Frogs in Fort Worth

The No.12-ranked Oklahoma Sooners go into hostile territory to face the No.10-ranked TCU Horned Frogs as Big12 conference play continues all weekend. Fans expecting to see a walk-it-up, slow-paced basketball game shouldn’t go near this one as both of these high-powered offenses have been shooting the lights out this season and average over 85 points per game. The Sooners opened as two-point underdogs vs TCU.

  • The total has gone over in four of Oklahoma’s last five games on the road.
  • TCU is 2-7 ATS in its last nine games vs Oklahoma.
  • Guard Trae Young is averaging 28.7 points per game this season.

What a delight it is to watch Trae Young play basketball this season. The freshmen leads the NCAA in points and assists and is draining threes off the dribble similar to Stephen Curry. Typically, that type of play doesn’t translate to wins but the Sooners currently rank first in the nation in points per game, are 11-1 SU and have answered some stiff challenges this season. Road victories over Wichita State, USC and Oregon have shown that the Sooners will not be rattled playing away from their home-digs. Where they seem to fall short is being a great spread-bet as the Sooners are 5-6 ATS this season. So, if bettors plan to back Oklahoma, stick to their moneyline.

Another surprise this season has been TCU. The Horned Frogs have launched themselves into the national conversation with an undefeated record at 12-0 SU. Senior guard Kenrich Williams has shown he belongs in the National POY conversation averaging 14.5 points and 9.5 rebounds and has lead the Horned Frogs to their highest AP ranking in the school’s history. The only knock on TCU is they have yet to play a ranked team so their undefeated record, while impressive, isn’t tested. Bettors will also be interested to know that the Horned Frogs haven’t won a Big12 conference opener since 2011.

The total opened at 170.5 and any game the Sooners are involved, the OVER needs to be heavily considered. The OVER has hit in nine of the Oklahoma’s 10 games this season and they average 95 points per game. Giddy up!
