TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 11TH
#346 TCU (-11′) over California at 3:30 PM EST
The Horned Frogs apply to a game two college football system that sports a phenomenal 30-4 ATS record, and they’ll have no trouble racing past the visiting Golden Bears on Saturday afternoon. California enters this contest off an upset loss to Nevada in its home opener and things will go downhill for head coach Justin Wilcox and his kids at this venue in a hurry.
Technically speaking, this is a monster spot for the home team. With head coach Gary Patterson at the helm, TCU has won seven straight against the Pac-12 Conference. Equally impressive, since 1981, game two hosts that take the field of battle off a blowout home win of 35 points or more in their season opener have posted a reliable 133-95-3 ATS mark. Provided both teams arrive without rest, this early season situation jumps to a lucrative 109-72-2 ATS including a sweet 77-44-1 ATS if they are favored by -7 or more. With those three parameters live and our “play on” host not going into revenge, this situation jets to a sensational 57-27-1 ATS. The Horned Frogs fit all four parts of that money-making equation.
This is going to be a difficult spot for visiting Cal too. As a guest arriving off a straight up home loss, the Golden Bears have gone into hibernation notching a feeble 12-42 SU and 20-32-1 ATS mark in their last 54 games. In this role priced between -3 and +12, California falls to a woeful 8-34 SU and 12-28-1 ATS including a disturbing 3-19 SU and 4-16-1 ATS in their last 22 if the Bears take the field off a pointspread loss as well. Additionally, when coming off a straight up loss and lined up against a foe that arrives off a straight up win, Cal has failed to respond inking a terrible 19-39 SU and 21-37 ATS mark including a nasty 5-34 SU and 11-28 ATS record in this role if the Golden Bears are priced as a pup of +2.5 or more.
Coach Patterson’s boys have the pleasure of opening with four consecutive home games and the Toads are going to make each of them count. Take TCU. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
