Oklahoma vs TCU NCAA Hoops Spread Analysis

Posted by Eric Williams on Thursday,March 3, 2016 12:03, EST in

While it’s always nice to be at the top of your conference when the regular season draws to a close, the fact of the matter is that every single team in the country would give that up if it meant they could take a real run at the national championship. The Oklahoma Sooners find themselves in that position, as they have seen the Kansas Jayhawks romp to another regular season title in the Big-12 Conference. The Sooners may be disappointed that they weren’t able to hold on to the top spot, but their #6 national ranking suggests that they may be on the cusp of something a little bigger. They have one more game left in which to cement their ranking, and it looks like it should be a pretty straightforward one, as they head to Texas to face the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday afternoon in what should be an intense college hoops odds match up.

Why bet on Oklahoma Sooners

The Sooners (23-6, 11-6) have stumbled a little coming down the stretch with 4 losses in their last 8 games. The needed a big final week in order to maintain their top 10 status, and they essentially ensured that with a crucial 73-71 win over the ranked Baylor Bears earlier in the week. They will now get to finish the season up with a game against a TCU Horned Frogs team that they blasted 95-72 earlier in the season. Oklahoma are just 3-5 on the road in conference play, but those losses have come against teams that are either ranked, or which are a good deal better than what TCU have to offer. The Sooners are averaging 81.1 PPG, and are giving up 70.4 PPG.

Why bet on TCU Horned Frogs

There really is not much to like about this TCU (11-19, 2-15) team, as the come into this game on a 6-game losing skid. They only managed a single win during the month of February, and they have nit managed to win a game against a ranked team all season long. The Horned Frogs were seriously outclassed in their last meeting with the Sooners, and that is pretty much how things have gone for them any time they have faced ranked opposition this season. The majority of the wins that TCU have put together this year have come on home court, so I suppose they have that going in their favor. The best they can hope for here is to keep things respectable. The Horned Frogs are averaging 67.0 PPG, and are giving up 71.2 PPG.
