The TCU Horned Frogs team should win at least 10 games in 2015-16, and is a very good College Football pick at 11. As long as the over-under is below 11, you should bet the over with confidence.
The Texas Christian Horned Frogs were not one of the four teams to make the first College Football Playoff last season. They were left just outside the playoff’s doors, thanks to Ohio State’s blowout of Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game. The Horned Frogs had to accept their fate, and they did a very good job of that by crushing Ole Miss in the Peach Bowl. With their starting quarterback for another season, the hopes are high in Fort Worth that the team can make the playoff this year and the College Football odds suggest there’s a good chance they make it.
Is TCU A Good Bet To Win The Conference?
The Horned Frogs are a very good bet to win the conference for a few basic reasons. First, Trevone Boykin is back. The TCU quarterback was in the top 10 of the Heisman Trophy voting last year, and he’s one of the leading favorites to win the award this year. He’s going to get a long look from voters, and the fact that he can make plays with his legs as well as with his arm is what will enable him to rack up big statistical totals. With another year of experience, Boykin should also be able to cut down on the risky plays and decisions he made last season. As easily as TCU crushed Ole Miss in the Peach Bowl, the Horned Frogs still committed multiple turnovers and did not play their best offensive game. The scary thing about Boykin is that he still has more room in which to improve. He can get even better. TCU’s offense, which was extremely good in 2014, should be just as good if not better this season, and that’s a great reason to pick the Horned Frogs to win the Big 12.
Another great reason to choose TCU in the Big 12 is that the Horned Frogs host Baylor this season and visit Oklahoma. This is a great pair of scheduling breaks for the Horned Frogs. Oklahoma is weaker this season than in the past, so visiting the Sooners this season represents good timing for TCU. You’d rather play a road game against a conference opponent that’s more vulnerable. You want to play home games against tougher teams. Baylor, the two-time defending champion in the Big 12, is the toughest team TCU will play all year, but the Horned Frogs get the Bears at home. The schedule works out.
Is TCU A Good Bet To Go Over Their Regular Season Win Total
TCU has a very strong team, one that should be at the top of the Big 12 once again. Maybe Baylor will beat TCU, and maybe the Horned Frogs will lose one road game against a really good team, a game they were not supposed to lose. However, beyond Baylor and maybe one stumble, TCU is too solid and deep to lose more than two games. Coach Gary Patterson is one of the best in the business. TCU should win at least 10 games, and is a very good bet for 11. As long as the over-under is below 11, you should take the over for your College Football pick on the Horned Frogs.
