The Texas Christian University Horned Frogs have one of the most distinctive mascots in college football betting, a mascot so singular that for many years it outshined the school’s football team. But not this year as the #4 TCU Horned frogs enter Week 4 of the grid iron action as the fourth-ranked team in the country and playing for a potential national title.
On Friday night the team will play against an out-classed SMU team in a matchup that could turn into a blow out early as the Horned Frogs are simply a better team and the team must beat the daylights out of opponents week in and week out to maintain its lofty rankings in non-automatic BCS bid conference.
Kickoff for this Friday matchup is set for 8:05 Eastern Time and sbgglobal opened with the Horned Frogs as a 17.-point favorite with an over/under total at 55 1/2.
That may seem like a massive point spread for a NCAA college football betting matchup a month into the season but it’s nothing compared to Ohio State’s 42.5 point line against Eastern Michigan. But that digression aside, football fans should expect an old fashioned beat down in this one.
SMU has seen something of resurgence in its football program with addition of new coach June Jones form the Islands. He brought his high flying spread offense to the main land but so far this season it hasn’t been working. SMU is just 73rd in the country in passing with 224.0 yards per game. But the team is 2-1 and looking to add another win this week before it begins its Conference USA schedule.
Unfortunately for Mustangs fans it ain’t gonna happen.
TCU will be looking to score as many points as humanly possible and in the process SMU will be severely embarrassed. The Horned Frogs (3-0) are averaging nearly 46 ppg and have won their games by an average margin of more than 30 points. The defense has been smothering, giving up just 222.7 yards per game and has allowed just 2 TDS in its past two games.
TCU with these college football odds will battle and likely cover the spread.
