College Football Betting – Baylor Hosts TCU in Legitimate Big 12 Showdown

College Football Betting -- Baylor Hosts TCU in Legitimate Big 12 Showdown

That was quite a performance the TCU Horned Frogs put on against Oklahoma last week, as they held on for a 37-33 victory. But now they have to load up that emotional tank once again and go on the road to face a Baylor Bears squad that has been very tough to beat – from a pointspread standpoint – at home. The kickoff for college football betting in Waco is 3:30 PM ET, and the game will be televised by ABC.

TCU is now 4-0 on the season, and they are a genuine Big 12 contender. Because there was a flurry of upsets last week, they were able to elevate themselves in the rankings, moving all the way up to the ninth spot in the Associated Press poll, as well as #12 in the coaches poll. That is very lofty stuff, but this is a team that is been making a lot of progress offensively under quarterback Trevane Boykin, who, as many college football betting fans are aware, is a converted wide receiver.

Baylor kind of went through the motions last week against Texas; they realized that the Longhorns did not let have a lot of punch offensively, and they did not need much to come out with a victory. In fact, they only gained 389 yards, which is well below their standard.

In the college football betting lines that a been posted on this game at BetAnySports, Baylor is favored by a touchdown:

Baylor Bears -7 (-115)
TCU Horned Frogs +7 (-105)

Over 64.5 Points -110
Under 64.5 Points -110

Baylor is ranked third in the country in the coaches poll and fifth in the AP rankings. This is unquestionably their biggest challenge to date. The winner of this game has to be considered the overwhelming favorite to win the Big 12 this season, and that might be the key that opens the door into the four-team college football championship playoff.

BetAnySports customers who have followed Baylor this season know that Bryce Petty, who was considered a Heisman candidate at the season’s outset, has been struggling with back problems. In fact, he has only nine touchdown passes on the year, and actually had to sit out one game. But he has told reporters that for the first time since the season opener against SMU, when he suffered the back injury, he is operating without pain. We will see how that unfolds.

There is something for college football bettors to digest, in the sense that Baylor has cashed a lot of tickets on their home field. In fact, they have covered twelve games in a row at home, and that has continued as they have moved into the brand-new McLane Stadium.
