Our college football free pick goes back to a grudge game this Saturday. TCU put up an ungodly number of points against Texas Tech last year. Alas this lambasting did not do enough to sway the voters and now the Horned Frogs (3-0) have to deal with the fallout. Texas Tech (3-0) is much improved and get to host a damaged TCU squad at 3:45PM. The line is in the – 6 1/2 point region for the visitors. Which way will HRWager recommend for this one?
College Football Free Pick : TCU Vulnerable
Anytime one sees an eleven point spread bet down to under a touchdown, most of the sharps and even the public have hopped on board of this one. This is how injury ravaged the TCU squad is in that they expect to play two walk ons for this game. Seven starters in total from the start of the season are not going to be here. This is on top of all the NFL graduations the program saw last year. Style points are out of their mind as survival is the name of the game in this one.
- Trevone Boykin (TCU) might be the better quarterback right now but Patrick Mahomes has the best chance to put up the bigger numbers here.
- Special team edge to TCU. Field goal kicking is night and day. The Horned Frogs have an all conference kicker while Tech has two freshman that are sharing the time at this role.
- Jakeem Grant is not alone at wide out for the Raiders. Tech has a bevy of wide receivers ready to break out against a weakened TCU defense.
Our verdict has come in. We consulted the local newspapers and media outlets in Texas. Most everyone has the Raiders covering and a few even had the ML winning outright selection. There will be no running up the score this time as TCU will not be able to contain the Horned Frogs. Go and get the +6 1/2 at home and invest in Texas Tech today. Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at HRWager.
