Oklahoma vs TCU Prediction & Pick
TCU has scored 139 points through 3 games, and the Horned Frogs enter off a nearby state rivalry win over SMU, 42-34. One of those wins was against a weak FCS foe, but the Horned Frogs have averaged 450 yards offense in wins over SMU and Colorado. Senior WR Derius Davis has big-play potential with a team-high 126 yards and 2 TDs this season, and he's also a threat in the return game. Davis leads the Big 12 with 48 yards per kickoff and 21 per punt return which includes a 60-yard punt return in a Week 1 win over Colorado.
TCU senior QB Max Duggan has a strong passer rating with nearly 700 yards passing and a 8:0 TD/INT ratio. TCU's pass defense is a concern in this match-up after allowing 372 passing yards to SMU, but the Horned Frogs do have a pair of linebackers that get into the backfield and have combined for 5.5 tackles for loss.
Oklahoma missed out on many big plays last week with QB Dillon Gabriel missing on some key passes and downs. The Sooners had 11 penalties which hurt their momentum and chance for added plays and yards. After averaging more than 4 sacks in their first three games, the Sooners were also held without a sack last week.
Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma: 37 | TCU: 24

Oklahoma vs TCU Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Oklahoma torched TCU last season 52-31, however, the Sooners have a new quarterback this year in Dillon Gabriel. But he's a top quarterback transfer who passed for more than 60 TDs at UCF and has an 11:0 TD/INT ratio this season for Oklahoma with 1,089 passing yards. The Sooners defense is also improved this year, but K-State was able to keep the ball for 10 more minutes than Oklahoma last week which is very unlikely to be the case against TCU.
Oklahoma has exploded for more than 500 yards offense each of the past two games including a 49-14 road win at Nebraska. The offense has been very balanced in those two wins, and the Sooners are averaging 231 rushing YPG and 281 passing YPG this season. Expect a big bounce back road win for Oklahoma.
