The win that TCU got on the road against Minnesota might not have set the world on fire or gotten a lot of props from the sports media, but in price per head sports betting it should be considered a fantastic start to what could be a marvellous season. The 2015 season for the Horn frogs is a season were they want to get the respect of the Nation and try to place their name in the race for the College Football playoffs. They have a serious Heisman hopeful in Trevor Boykin and they have an overall solid team that could turn a lot of heads by the end of the season.
Their first game of the season saw the Frogs go to hostile territory and face a dangerous opponent, and even though their 23-17 win was a shaky one, the underlying importance of that game is that they managed to pass a complicated test at the very beginning of the season. And while Boykin might have not been at his best, he still had some moments of brilliance that demonstrated why he is considered one of the best players in the country and why the price per head sports betting should have him as one of the favourites to win the Heisman trophy.
It would be terribly shortsighted by bettors and price per head sports betting enthusiasts to disregard TCU after this game, because of their performance. On paper the Frogs were big favourites over the Golden Gophers, but thinking that they would have been blown out of the water was totally ludicrous. Minnesota possesses a very strong, well-trained defines with an excellent secondary line. That meant, straight from the get go, that Boykin was going to face a very tough challenge, plus on the very beginning of the season, without much rhythm.
The fact of the matter is that despite not earning style points for their performance, TCU was able to take a win on the road against a team that is and will be underestimated by many. the best pay per head experts understood that the key for this game was to see how the Horned Frogs would be able to adapt to a defence that would push them hard. Furthermore, the fact that Minnesota was able to mount a rather frenetic 4th-quarter drive made this game closer than what it would be expected, TCU’s defines had a relatively great game save for that play.
TCU is a contender for the National Playoffs. Further down the road of this season, this game could be very well considered one of the most important point of their season and it could put them closer to the top 4 rankings when the dust settles.
