TCU vs. Colorado Prediction, Pick Against the Spread, and Latest Odds

The TCU Horned Frogs and the Colorado Buffaloes will take place from the Mile High on Friday night as the two teams kick off the 2022 season. Colorado is coming off a 4-8 season last year that was filled with more downs than ups. This is a team that really struggled to score points last year, and they will look to flip the script on that narrative this season. The Buffaloes are led by sophomore QB Brendon Lewis. Lewis will be the man in charge of the offense this season, and Colorado is confident in his ability. Come check out my prediction, picks, and odds for this contest.

TCU vs. Colorado Prediction

TCU will be led by senior Max Duggan. Duggan has a ton of college experience and will look to use that to the best of his abilities on Friday night. TCU is a team that has a ton of upside and could make some noise out of the Big 12. TCU also represents an above-average defense that will help them win a lot of football games this year. The Horned Frogs went 5-7 a season ago and know that they are a much better team this year than their record indicated a season ago. The Big 12 will be wide open this year, and they are well aware of that. TCU comes into this game as a thirteen-point road favorite, which is a massive line when two power conference teams get together. The over-under is sitting at 58.5 right now. 

I am backing the under here tonight. I understand TCU should have a pretty good offense this year, but I do not think Colorado's offense is capable of putting up a lot of points. This is an offense that is typically very methodical, so even when they do get points, the clock should be drained. I do not expect TCU to play with a ton of tempo on their side of the football, either. I could see both teams playing slow early, running the football, and feeling each other out. This total is far too high, and we will take advantage and cash in tonight. Let’s stay hot!
