Arkansas Vs TCU College Football Expert Predictions
You only need to look at what happened in Week 1 of the college football season to see that getting through the season totally unscathed is easier said than done. Even coming away with a win is no guarantee that you will avoid the wrath of the fans and sports media, as every team has a certain amount of expectation heaped upon them. The Arkansas Razorbacks and TCU Horned Frogs are perfect examples of that. Both teams came away with a win in the opening week of the season, but both have had to face a little bit of the glare from the spotlight after not really winning in a manner that was expected of them. We are now in the college football playoff era, and that means that every single win and loss is going to be scrutinized to death, so you can bet that both of these teams will be looking to be a little more impressive when they go head to head in Texas this weekend. It is the Horned Frogs who come into this on as a 7.5-point home field online betting favorite.

Why bet on the Arkansas Razorbacks
Arkansas Razorbacks went into their game versus Louisiana Tech as a 3 TD favorite, yet managed to just hold on for a 21-20 win. There were some rather glaring weaknesses to be found in the Razorbacks game, most notably on special teams, and with turning the ball over at inopportune times, which they did twice. The hope here is that the Razorbacks will have got their bad game out of the way early, and that they will up the ante a little in Week 2. They ae well aware that any sort of mistakes against TCU this week will very likely end up being punished, as they are facing a Horned Frogs offense that has the ability to be totally ruthless.
Why bet on the TCU Horned Frogs
We always know that we are going to see something pretty special and exciting when the TCU offense steps on the field, and last week was no exception. Thy racked up over 650 yards of total offense, and put 59 points on the board, but they also tuned the ball over twice. It has been the defense that has been the Achilles heel for this team, and the promise was that things were going to get better this season. Giving up 41 points in Week 1 versus South Dakota State is not anyone’s idea of better. TCU looked good against the run, but were a little susceptible though the air, which is something that they are definitely going to have to improve on.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
While this looks as though it may be a close one, my belief is that TCU are going to come out feeling as though they have a point to prove after a sloppy opening week. I think they pull away in the end and cover the spread.
