2018 TCU Horned Frogs Betting Odds

NCAA Football Betting: Every now and then under Gary Patterson the Horned Frogs put up a clunker of a season. It happened in 2016 when injuries played a role in TCU winning six games while posting just the third losing season in Patterson’s 17 years at the helm. In typical Frogs fashion they bounced back last season, winning 11 games and reaching the Big 12 Championship. The Frogs are looking to close the gap on Oklahoma after losing both games in 2017 by a combined 42 points and they are a quarterback away from becoming a serious contender.

Horned Frogs National Championship Odds: +11500

Horned Frogs Odds To Win Big 12: +756

Horned Frogs Regular Season Win Total: 7.5

TCU was the second best team in the Big 12 last season but all it got them was a beatdown in the conference championship game. Oklahoma could have a letdown following the departure of several key players, opening the door for the rest of the league to catch up. The Frogs are a likely candidate to contend as long as they find a replacement for Kenny Hill, who was brilliant in leading the club to 11 wins in 2017.

The jury is still out on sophomore Shawn Robinson, who was Hill’s backup last season. In limited duty he threw for 184 yards and three touchdowns, but completed just 13 of 27 attempts. Robinson was thrust into a starting role late last season against Texas Tech and delivered a victory, though it was the Frogs defense that did the work in a 27-3 outcome. Prized recruit Justin Rogers will push for playing time if he’s recovered from offseason knee surgery. The skill players are talented but inexperienced and the line needs to be reshaped. Otherwise, TCU is good to go on that side of the football.

Playing defense in the Big 12 is tough, but the Frogs have managed quite well the past few seasons. They led the conference in total defense and scoring defense and benefit from the return of Ben Banogu, who collected 8.5 sacks last year. The secondary is strong and the unit as a whole should keep the Frogs in most games. If the offense can develop around a young line and Robinson finds traction under center, TCU should be in the middle of the Big 12 race.

The game has been played at TCU since the late 1890s and the program had its first taste of success in the 1930s. Under Francis Schmidt, the Frogs compiled a 47-5-5 record from 1929 to 1933. His successor, Dutch Meyer, took the school to its pinnacle. In 1935 the Frogs went 12-1, won the Sugar Bowl and claimed the first of its two national championships.

With the program’s lone Heisman Trophy winner Davey O’Brien at quarterback, the Frogs put a perfect season together in 1938, winning 11 games, another Sugar Bowl title and the program’s second national championship. Meyer never matched the success of the 1938 club and retired following the 1952 season with a then record 109 victories.

Since 1995 no team has changed conferences more than TCU. The Frogs left the Southwest Conference for the WAC in 1996 and ended their five-year affiliation with a conference title. With LaDanian Tomlinson carrying the load, the Frogs ended the 2000 season 10-2 and ranked No. 21 in the country. It was their first season-ending ranking in over 40 years. Gary Patterson took over for Dennis Franchione at the end of that season and guided the program through stays in Conference USA, the Mountain West and finally the Big 12, where they’ve been a power.
