Vegas Odds show TCU Poised to Follow-up Cinderella College Football Picks Season: The TCU Horned Frogs were one of the surprises of the college football picks season, cracking the BCS bowl lineup with a 12-0 regular College Football Picks season as a non-BCS conference team, and eventually losing to fellow underdog Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl. The Horned Frogs are off to good start following-up on their breakout campaign with a #6 ranking in the preseason USA Today college football poll and with 12-1 Vegas odds to get the BCS championship game this time.
TCU will begin their 2010 campaign with a veteran team, 9 out of 11 players return on offense, while 7 of 11 come back on the defensive side of the ball. Last year. TCU was a scoring machine, racking-up 50 or more points four times.
Senior Andy Dalton is the trigger man on offense, throwing 23 TD passes against just 8 picks a year ago. TCU has a stable of running backs at his disposal, including sophomores Matthew Tucker and Ed Wesley. College football odds show Dalton will run too, as evidenced by his over 600 yards on the ground a year ago. Dalton spreads the ball around a lot with senior Jeremy Kerly the leading returning receiver.
The defensive line got after the QB a year ago but TCU loses DE Jerry Huges. Senior end Wayne Daniels is back and should pick-up the slack in what is a deep and seasoned unit. The linebacking unit is one of the nation’s college football picks best, led by junior Tank Carder. TCU routinely starts five DBs, including three safeties, with senior CB Alex Ibiloye leading the way.
TCU College Football Picks Season Forecast
Entering his tenth College Football Picks season at TCU, Vegas odds show Coach Gary Patterson might have the best non-BSC school in the nation. They meet Oregon State at Arlington, Texas on opening night and that game will set the stage for 2010. Win and they could run the table again. TCU should not have any problems with their regular season Mountain West Conference schedule, though they do play Utah on the road. The Horned Frogs won’t be underdogs this year so they’ll have to respond to the favorite’s role too.
