No Pachall - No Problem!
Earlier this week, I wrote an article predicting that TCU would upset the Baylor Bears this Saturday. I posted it as a free play, it was featured in Chalk Talk, I posted it all over Facebook, and I told everyone that would listen, to take the Horned Frogs on the moneyline +$245.
Of course the Horned Frogs were without starting quarterback Casey Pachall, who has now left the team to seek treatment for alcoholism. Freshman quarterback Trevone Boykin tossed three interceptions in his first career start the week prior, including getting picked off with his first pass of the game. Despite all that, I was convinced that the kid had all the tools to get it done this week against Baylor.
Here is what I had to say about it: "Boykin came in and threw an interception with his first pass of the ballgame. He completed 23 of 40 passes for 270 yards, one touchdown and three picks. It wasn't pretty, however at times the young quarterback showed flashes of brilliance. Despite turning the ball over five times, TCU still managed to gain 455 yards of offense, more than any offense against the Cyclones all season."
The Horned Frogs, led by Boykin, dominated the Bears on Saturday, winning by a score of 49-21. Boykin threw for 261 yards and four touchdowns, and he added 56 more yards, and another touchdown on the ground.
Texas Christian is going to move up the rankings this week, and they remain among the best teams in the country. They have a tough game coming up next week at home versus Texas Tech, with the Raiders coming off an upset over West Virginia.
We will keep an eye on Trevone Boykin, but from what I have seen so far, I think the Horned Frogs are likely to be a better team with the freshman taking over for Pachall.

1* Under Diamondbacks/Dodgers (10:10 ET): The term "pitcher's park" has certainly applied to Dodger Stadium in 2016 as we've seen an average of just 6.9 runs per game scored here, fewest in all of baseball. The result of that is the Under has gone a remarkable 36-14 in Chavez Ravine. Welcoming in a weak opponent they should theoretically dominate, hopefully the Dodgers don't even play the bottom half of the ninth here (always a nice advantage to have). My recommendation here is on the Under.
We obviously don't want LA to score much either and fortunately for our case, their slumping lineup just managed only four runs total in two games vs. the Tampa Bay Rays. Those games took place here at home and in seven of the last eight home games, the Dodgers have now been held to four runs or fewer. The embattled Zach Godley starts for Arizona and while his track record suggests he might struggle, I see him keeping a scuffling lineup somewhat in check.
Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda should take care of the rest. He has a 0.883 WHIP his L3 starts and he flat out dominated San Diego in his last home start, holding them to just one run on two hits over seven innings w/ a 13-0 KW rate. Maeda also held Arizona scoreless the lone time he faced them (back in April), allowing just five hits in 6 IP. The Under, true to form, cashed in all three games the one time the Dodgers have hosted the D'back this year and I see the trend continuing tonight. 1* Under Diamondbacks/Dodgers
