TCU should be favored in college football lines in all of their games this season and it is not out of the question that the Horned Frogs could go unbeaten.
College football betting lines favor TCU in their opener as they host Oregon State on September 4th. The Horned Frogs will also be favored the following week against Tennessee Tech. The only game that TCU might be an underdog in would be late in the season at Utah but if the Horned Frogs are unbeaten going into that game they would almost assuredly be favored, even on the road at Utah.
TCU was a juggernaut last season as they finished fifth in the country in scoring. They have nine starters back including quarterback Andy Dalton. The defense did lose Jerry Hughes and Daryl Washington but the Horned Frogs are still very good on that side of the ball.
TCU has very few weaknesses heading into the 2010 college football season. The only question on offense is at right tackle. If the Horned Frogs find a solution at that spot they should really roll on offense. The defense does need to have Tank Carder and Kris Gardner healthy at linebacker as that position is weaker than in past years.
The Horned Frogs could go unbeaten this season if Dalton doesn’t turn the ball over. In the last 29 games, TCU is 25-1 when Dalton throws one interception or less. When he throws multiple interceptions they are 0-2. When Dalton doesn’t throw any interceptions the Horned Frogs are a perfect 22-0.
TCU has a really favorable schedule to make a run at a perfect season. They will be challenged by Oregon State in the opener vs. college football lines but that game is in Arlington which is about as close to a home game as you can get. If the Horned Frogs are to lose at all it will probably come on the road and the only difficult road game comes late in the year at Utah. That game could end up determining the Mountain West champion and a BCS bowl bid.
