TCU makes the short trek down I-35 to face another top-10 opponent after picking up a 37-33 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners as 3.5-point home underdogs last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total for the third time in four contests. The Horned Frogs are looking to go 5-0 for the fourth time in the last 12 campaigns, which is important to consider when making your Week 7 NCAA football picks, especially since the program is 15-14 SU versus ranked opponents under Gary Patterson. TCU is 3-6 SUATS in October the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 5-4 in that situation.
The Horned Frogs are 51-51-7 SU all-time against the Bears, including a 26-23-1 mark when playing away from home. Since 2009, TCU is 5-2 SU on the road against top-25 opposition, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NCAA football odds page. Offensively, the team is averaging 516.2 yards per game under co-coordinators Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meacham, with quarterback Trevone Boykin ranking second in the Big 12 Conference in accounting for 359.0 yards of total offense a contest.
Baylor returns home after winning three consecutive road games, including a 28-7 victory over the Texas Longhorns as 13.5-point favorites last Saturday, while also winning the statistical battle for the fifth straight time to open the year. The Bears are 6-0 SU against ranked opponents when playing in Waco the last three seasons, while they’ve captured their last 16 games overall when playing in the Lone Star State. Baylor is 8-7 SU and 11-4 ATS versus teams with a winning record the last two-plus seasons.
The Bears lead the country in averaging 51.0 points per game, while they sit behind just one team in gaining 590.6 yards a contest. Baylor has outscored opponents by an incredible 157-10 margin in the first half, as it looks to improve upon its 7-19 SU record against top-25 foes under head coach Art Briles.
Sports bettors will likely back the Bears due to their 22-8-1 ATS mark in their last 31 games.
