The TCU Horned Frogs (14-11, 5-7 CONF) and the Texas Longhorns (14-11, 4-8 CONF) will meet on Wednesday, February 19th for a Big 12 matchup at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, TX. The game will be played at 8:00 PM eastern time. 

TCU is coming off a 68-57 home win over Kansas State in their last game. That win snapped a six-game losing streak for TCU, who actually started Big 12 play at 4-2 believe it or not. Texas is coming off an 81-52 loss to Iowa State on the road. Texas has now lost four in a row, all of which being Big 12 conference games.

TCU is 8-16 ATS this season and 2-8 ATS in their last ten games. TCU is also 1-6 ATS on the road so far this season. Texas is 9-16 ATS this season and 4-6 ATS in their last ten games. Texas is also 4-10 ATS at home so far this season. Texas won the first game between these two teams this season, 62-61.

Not sure why the line is not out for this game, but be sure to check your betting sites and locations to see if it is released. I am going to guess Texas is favorite by a small margin, and although I do not trust Texas at all right now, I like them better at home than TCU on the road. Take Texas if you have to, stay away at all cost in my opinion.
