College Football Betting Preview: SMU Mustangs at TCU Horned Frogs

SMU at TCU
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS1
CRIS Opener:
TCU -19.5 O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: TCU -19 O/U 51.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: TCU -14.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: TCU

If Texas A&M wanted to, it could have hung 60+ on SMU last weekend. Instead, the Aggies backed off late and won 42-13. This week, I don't think TCU has the ability to score at that type of rate but the Horned Frogs could offset that by putting up more resistance defensively.

TCU is off to a 1-2 start and has lost the services of quarterback Casey Pachall. Trevone Boykin is no doubt a tick down from Pachall but at home, off a bye week, and against a defense that has allowed 315.7 ypg passing, I expect him to have one of his better games.

Ever since Week 1's dismal showing against Texas Tech at home – in what should have been SMU's Game of the Year – I've been looking to fade this team. You have three key Read more

College Football Gambling Preview: LSU Tigers vs. TCU Horned Frogs

LSU vs. TCU
Marty Otto's Recommendation:
LSU
Saturday, 6 pm PT - ESPN (at Cowboys Stadium)
CRIS Opener:
LSU -3 O/U 50.5
CRIS Current: LSU -4 O/U 50

This is one of the marquee games of college football’s opening week and it’s being played on a monster stage. It’s Saturday night, on ESPN primetime, at massive Cowboys Stadium. The Tigers currently find themselves as 4-point favorites and I wouldn’t expect them to go off at anything less than that number barring a major suspension or injury.

Coaching
Les Miles enters his ninth season as head coach at LSU. His teams have managed to win at least 10 games in each of the last three years and in six of his previous eight seasons. John Chavis remains as the defensive coordinator. Cam Cameron is the new offensive coordinator after a long stint in the NFL.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson has been at the helm for 13 years Read more

Ian Cameron's Recommendation:
TCU
Saturday, 12:20 pm PT - FSN
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma State -9 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Oklahoma State -7 O/U 63.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma State -9

Oklahoma State has some quarterback concerns entering Saturday’s Big XII showdown against TCU. Backup J.W. Walsh, who has been starting for injured starter Wes Lunt, is now out for the rest of the year with a knee injury. Walsh had played in six games and gone 102-of-154 passing for 1,467 yards and 10 touchdowns. Lunt is currently listed as probable to return for this game from his own injury but he still may not be quite at 100% yet.

TCU’s defense, while not being the same shutdown unit we’ve seen from previous Gary Patterson squads, still has better numbers across the board than Oklahoma State. TCU is 17th in the nation in total yards allowed at 313 per game and Read more

Andrew Lange's Recommendation:
Baylor
Saturday, 4 pm - FSN
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -6 O/U 66.5
CRIS Current: Baylor -7 O/U 68
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Baylor -4

Teddy Covers mentioned on today's Sportsmemo Podcast that TCU is prime fade material. I agree 100%. There's the suspension of quarterback Casey Pachall and an upcoming schedule that ranks among the toughest in the country (at Baylor, vs. Texas Tech, at Oklahoma State, at West Virginia, vs. Kansas State, at Texas, vs. Oklahoma). Even with Pachall, based on how the Horned Frogs have looked this season, two wins out of the group would be quite the accomplishment.

Some may point to last week's home loss to Iowa State as being a bit unlucky (TCU had five turnovers, and outgained the Cyclones by over 100 yards) but Read more

College Football Handicapping: TCU says offense will be more diverse with Boykin

10.05.2012     06:50 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Iowa State at TCU -7 O/U 41.5

According to TCU head coach Gary Patterson, the Horned Frogs will actually have "more offense" with quarterback Trevone Boykin under center. Prior to Casey Pachall's suspension, there was talk of working Boykin in at running back (12 carries, 122 yards). And while TCU is up against it having to prepare a rookie QB on short notice, the same can be said for Iowa State.


“We actually have more offense with Trevone Boykin in the game than we have with Casey Pachall in the game,” Patterson said. “[Pachall] can throw all the throws, but now you have a very athletic guy who can do a lot of other things that Casey can’t do.”

“In a lot of ways, Read more

College Football Betting Update: TCU now -7.5 vs. Iowa State following Pachall suspension

10.04.2012     12:40 PM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Iowa State at TCU -7.5 O/U 41.5

With TCU quarterback Casey Pachall officially suspended, TCU is expected to start redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin against Iowa State.


“He’s got a great arm,” Patterson said in a radio interview. “If you’ve watched him in games that he’s come in, especially Grambling, he’s got a lot of positives that he does.”



TCU opened the game -13 but was bet down to -10/-9.5 prior to the Pachall's brush with the law. Sportsbooks then reopened the game a few hours later -8.5 but support for ISU has dropped the line down to 7.5 (-7 -115 at Heritage). The total was also bet down from 43 to Read more

Iowa State at TCU

Our Sports Options screen just went black as news broke TCU quarterback Casey Pachall was arrested for DWI earlier this morning. Pachall went out like a winner though, blowing a robust 0.15 BAC. The Horned Frogs were around a 10-point favorite prior to the announcement.

College Football Betting: TCU prepares for life in the Big XII

07.24.2012     09:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
TCU preps for its first season in the Big XII. The biggest question mark is whether or not the defense can bounce back AND handle some of the high-powered offenses of the Big XII. Last season, the Horned Frogs finished 32nd in total defense (347.4) and allowed 50 points to Baylor, 40 to SMU and 35 to Boise State. Over the last four years, TCU went 6-2 SU and 4-4 ATS vs. BCS Conference opponents.

TCU Total Defense Last 5 years
2011: 32nd - 347.4 ypg
2010: 1st - 228.5 ypg
2009: 1st - 239.7 ypg
2008: 1st - 217.8 ypg
2007: 15th - 323.6 ypg


"You've got to be prepared," said TCU defensive end Stansly Maponga. "The speed is going to be different."

"People said: 'You're not going to be playing New Mexico anymore. You're not going to be playing Vegas anymore,'" Patterson continued. "Yeah, but those were 50-point ball games. What's reality? Because all you have to do is win by one point to get to where you need to go."

"… If I said, Read more

Poinsettia Bowl Betting Preview: Louisiana Tech Bulldogs vs. TCU Horned Frogs

Poinsettia Bowl
Louisiana Tech vs. TCU
Wednesday, 5 pm PT – ESPN
CRIS Opener: TCU -11 O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: TCU -9.5 O/U 56
Rob Veno Power Rating: TCU -11.5

Marty Otto’s Betting Take: Before the season kicked off I suspected that TCU would struggle to duplicate some of the its recent results with so much roster turnover. While it certainly wasn’t a cakewalk they played better than I had anticipated. The offense in particular outperformed any projection I had coming into the season, ranking ninth nationally while scoring over 40 points per game. Quarterback Casey Pachall is having a phenomenal year and this ground game has been awesome with the three-headed attack of Waymon James, Matthew Tucker and Ed Wesley. But for a team that’s played in back-to-back BCS bowl games, winding up in the Poinsettia Bowl could be a real let Read more

College Football Pointspread Preview: BYU Cougars at TCU Horned Frogs

BYU at TCU (Friday, 5 pm PT – ESPN)
CRIS Opener: TCU -12 O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: TCU -13.5 O/U 56
Rob Veno Power Rating: TCU -11

Marty Otto’s Betting Take: I’m not sure I buy into the notion that BYU’s offense is growing. Sure, since the switch to quarterback Riley Nelson the Cougars have enjoyed a nice string of wins and points (41 ppg). But look at that schedule and you’ll notice it’s littered with abysmal defensive teams; San Jose State and Oregon State are tied for 83rd nationally in scoring defense while Idaho State ranks 105th in the FCS. I’d say this team hasn’t been tested in the slightest and any perceived improvement may be premature.

Granted, TCU’s defense looked as bad as any in the country in its Week 1 loss to Baylor.  Quarterback Robert Griffin torched the Horned Frogs and the track Read more
