Baylor Bears Betting Trends
Baylor’s betting trends reveal a challenging season. They are 1-4 ATS in their last five games, indicating struggles against the spread. Additionally, their SU record of 1-4 in recent games reflects inconsistencies in their overall performance. However, the trend of the total going OVER in 4 of their last 6 games suggests their capability to be part of high-scoring matches, especially on the road.
TCU Horned Frogs Betting Trends
TCU’s trends paint a slightly different picture. While they are 2-4 ATS in their last six games, they have a stronger record of going 5-1 ATS in their last six home games against Baylor. This home-ground advantage could be significant. However, their SU record of 1-5 in their last six games raises questions about their consistency.
Baylor Bears vs. TCU Horned Frogs 11/18/23 Betting Picks
At first glance, this matchup appears to lean in favor of TCU due to their home advantage and stronger ATS record against Baylor. While Baylor may keep things close throughout, TCU could ultimately emerge victorious due to their overall performance and strategic advantages.
The Horned Frogs could be the safer bet when it comes to betting picks, particularly with regard to spread. Over/Under is more challenging due to both teams’ high scoring tendencies; however, betting on the over may be reasonable considering their aggressive offenses and trends.
