To help you better decide who to bet, take a look at these trends for tonight.

Bulldogs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0.

Bulldogs are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

Horned Frogs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. WAC.

Horned Frogs are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win.

Over is 4-1 in Bulldogs last 5 games on grass.

Under is 5-2 in Bulldogs last 7 games overall.

Under is 7-0-1 in Horned Frogs last 8 bowl games.

Under is 7-1 in Horned Frogs last 8 vs. WAC.

My Prediction: At first look, this appears to be a mismatch and TCU blowout. Not so fast. The Bulldogs are one of the hottest teams in the nation right now. They won their last 7 games including 5 on the road to take the WAC Championship. They are also a remarkable 7-0 ATS away from home so a trip to San Diego shouldn’t be a problem for this team. TCU can rack up the points, but not as well as they did last year with Andy Dalton. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bulldogs won this game outright.

Louisiana Tech +10.5
