The Horned Frogs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, however, are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sooners are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss, however, are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

Oklahoma was able to defeat TCU earlier this season in a tight 82-78 battle and is a tough team at home, however, I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen from the Horned Frogs this season on the road as they are 2-0 in true road games (w/ a win at Oklahoma State) & 3-0 in neutral site games. TCU at times can struggle offensively however, they do have a solid scorer in RJ Nembhard and as I think the Horned Frogs can be competitive in this one, I’m taking TCU and the points. Good Luck!
