4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: TCU First Half Spread
This is a young TCU squad who is experiencing a losing streak, now it is time to see how resilient this young team is.
Iowa State finally got their first win of the season, but they don’t usually play well on the road and it will be against a TCU squad where they have gone 1-4 SU in their last five against them on the road.
I expect to see some assertiveness and focus from TCU to start this game off, which could leave Iowa State trailing from the get-go.
Back TCU to cover the first half spread which should be less than a touchdown.
