The Pick

TCU +230

TCU has been one of the best teams in the nation this season, thanks in large part to Heisman candidate Max Duggan and the Horned Frogs offense. They’re one of the most elite units in the nation, but their defense leaves a lot to be desired. Texas is a good team, but they’re inconsistent this season. They have a lot of talent, but we’re rolling with Sonny Dykes and Co. to pull this one out.
