TCU led 46-29 at halftime, but they were out scored 58-29 in the second half for the loss. The Horned Frogs shot 40.8% from the field and were 50% on three pointers in the game. TCU lost to Baylor by a score of 62-54 in the game prior to BYU, but did beat Cincinnati before that. The Horned Frogs are scoring 80.1 points per game with 37.1 rebounds per game and 17.3 assists per game, while giving up 71.1 points against per game this year. Emanuel Miller is averaging 15.9 points per game, 5.9 rebounds per game, and 2.7 assists per game.

West Virginia Preview

The West Virginia Mountaineers are 9-20 (4-12) this season after they lost to Texas Tech by a score of 81-70 in their last game. West Virginia trailed 45-39 at halftime and they only scored 25 points in the second half in the loss. The Mountaineers shot 51% from the field and had 14 turnovers in the game. West Virginia has lost seven of their last eight games, with the lone win coming against UCF at home. The Mountaineers are scoring 69.4 points per game with 34.4 rebounds per game and 12.9 assists per game, while giving up 75.3 points against per game this season. RaeQuan Battle is averaging 16.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 0.9 steals per game. West Virginia is shooting 42.3% from the field, 71.5% on free throws, and 34.5% on three pointers this year. 

TCU vs West Virginia Betting Prediction

TCU comes into this game after losing three of their last four games, including a complete second half collapse against BYU in their last game. The Horned Frogs are still on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament and cannot afford a bad loss here. West Virginia is tied for last in the Big 12 and they have allowed 81 and 94 points in their last two games. The Mountaineers are allowing over 75 points against per game this season, which is bad news against a TCU team that is scoring over 80 per game. TCU is the better team here, as I think West Virginia is really bad, so give me the Horned Frogs in this one.
