Immersion versus aspersion: TCU Horned Frogs at Baylor
Posted by: Mike Davis
The Baylor Bears will be the online football betting favorites when they host the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday, November 5th at McLane Stadium in Waco. The odds for people betting on college football are the following:
TCU +8½ (-115) 69 (-110) +270
The Horned Frogs lost their second straight game on Saturday, 24-27 to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. TCU backup QB Foster Sawyer – who took over after starter Kenny Hill was intercepted – connected wide receiver Desmon White with a 25-yard scoring pass to force a second overtime – even though he had a defender attached to his hip. However, the Frogs’ kicker Brandon Hatfield missed his third field goal of the game at the end of the first possession in the second overtime.
The Bears had their first loss of the season on Saturday, a 34-35 upset against the Texas Longhorns. QB Seth Russell finished 14 of 28 for 226 yards with two TD passes, and ran for 138 yards on 21 carries for another score. Baylor gained their most yards ever against Texas (624). “We knew the quarterback run was going to hurt them,” Russell said. “But it didn’t hurt them enough.” You gotta put the hurtin’ on ‘em.
And now for the weather: cloudy with a chance of online football betting. TCU QB Hill is completing 62% of his passes for 2450 yards, 13 touchdowns and 10 picks, and has two scoring passes in his last three games. Taj Williams and John Diarse have 953 receiving yards and five touchdowns, while Kyle Hicks has 31 catches. The Frogs have run for 166.6 yards per game. Hicks has rushed for 597 yards and seven touchdowns. TCU is yielding 30.1 points and 409.6 yards per game. Travin Howard has 88 tackles, Mat Boesen has six sacks, and Nick Orr has four interceptions. The Horned Frogs are 13-6 against the spread versus a team with a winning record, 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall, 4-1 against the spread in their last five visits to Baylor, and 4-0 against the spread in their last four encounters overall.
Our next candidate runs on an online betting platform. The Bears’ Russell is completing 56.1% of his passes for 1696 yards, 18 touchdowns and five picks, and has two or more touchdown passes in 12 of his last 13 games. KD Cannon and ‘Call me’ Ishmael Zamora have 803 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, and Blake Lynch has 20 catches. Baylor’s running game is averaging 299.2 yards per game. Terence Williams has run for 623 yards and eight TDs. The Bears are allowing 19.7 points and 352.9 yards per game. Aiavion Edwards has 57 tackles, Taylor Young has four sacks, and Orion Stewart has four interceptions. Baylor is 29-11 against the spread in their last 40 games at home, and 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 games overall.
