TOM STRYKER’S FREE COLLEGE BASKETBALL SELECTION MONDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH
#857 TCU (-) over Oklahoma St at 9 PM EST
After suffering a pair of tough home losses to Kansas and Oklahoma in its last two games and with a home war versus Iowa State on deck, TCU will travel to Stillwater and do a number on Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are in a funk right now on a dismal 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS run and the Pokes will be in serious trouble in this game.
A quick look at the history in this Big 12 showdown finds that the Horned Frogs have played very well in the last three meetings posting a 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS record. Equally impressive, in its last 66 games, TCU has inked a respectable 45-21 SU and 35-26-2 ATS mark including 11-4 SU and 10-5 ATS in this set facing a Big 12 foe that carries a conference won/loss percentage less than .500. Lastly, when favored, the Toads have put together a respectable 56-11 SU and 40-27 ATS mark including 25-13 ATS if they are priced competitively at -8 or less. With those two parameters live and TCU competing with three days of rest or less, this team trend jets to a stunning 17-1 SU and 16-2 ATS.
Since shocking LSU back on November 25th, OSU has been in a funk notching a disturbing 5-14 SU and 4-13 ATS in its last 19 games. In this role competing against an opponent that holds a team won/loss percentage of .560 or better, the Cowboys fall to a timid 1-14 SU and 2-13 ATS. Home dog roles haven’t worked well for the Pokes either. In their last 17 games inside Gallagher-Iba Arena shagging points, Okie State sports a soft 4-13 SU and 4-12-1 ATS mark including a nasty 2-11 SU and ATS in this spot provided the Pokes are not off a blowout loss of 14 points or more.
The Horned Frogs eight losses this season have come to teams ranked in the Top 40 by KenPom. Coming in at No. 106, the Cowboys are nowhere near those heavyweights. Take TCU. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
