NCAA Football Betting: BYU Cougars vs. TCU Horned Frogs

NCAA football betting takes center stage Thursday when the #9 BYU Cougars (6-0 SU, 2-3 ATS) look to keep their undefeated season and BCS aspirations intact.

Last week, the Horned Frogs (6-1 SU, 4-2 ATS) secured an ugly 13-7 road win against Colorado State that was their third straight game to go under the ‘total’.  The Cougars welcomed New Mexico to Provo for Homecoming last Saturday and cruised to the 21-3 victory but failed to cover the 22-point spread.

The Cougars are certainly riding high coming into this game with a Top-10 ranking and a dark horse Heisman Trophy contender in QB Max Hall.  Hall was stellar again last week going 22-of-34 for 265 yards and three touchdowns in the win.  With all the attention to Hall, their top-flight defense has gone virtually unnoticed despite allowing just 17 points in their past four games.

With the success of their defense, it is no surprise to college football betting fans that the Cougars last three games have combined to go under the posted ‘total’.  The last time these two teams met in Texas, the Cougars snapped the Horned Frogs 13 game winning streak in a big 31-17 win despite being seven point underdogs against the college football wagering line.

The Horned Frogs may be one of the most underrated teams in the nation, with their only loss coming to formerly #1 ranked Oklahoma in Norman, a 35-10 loss where they failed to cover the NCAA football gambling odds as 18-point road pups.  Defense is the strength of this team as they’ve held five of their seven opponents to a touchdown or less this season.

Last week, they held the Rams to 11 yards rushing on 28 carries and forced three turnovers en route to the victory.  TCU has covered their last four home games for NCAA gamblers heading into this Thursday night affair.  Currently, the college football gambling line has the Cougars as one-point road favorites in this game with a total of 46.5.
