SMU Has Dallas Bookies on Edge: Up Next, the Horned Frogs

The SMU Mustangs kick off the new College Football season 2-0 Against The Spread and have the books, especially those with Dallas roots, on edge.

Southern Methodist will enter this Week 3 game as a +19 underdog with more recent games having been 20 or greater routs. 

SMU has scored 112 points in wins over Stephen F. Austin (58) and North Texas (54). Quarterback Ben Hicks and receiver Courtland Sutton will face a TCU defense that has allowed a total of 333 yards in the first two games.

So while the odds are against SMU winning outright here, the big question will be whether this game could at least get close enough for a Mustangs cover.

Frogs O’ War may be a bit on the bias side when it comes to which team will prevail here, but even they have their concerns. 

DMN writer Matt Mosely says:

Anything can happen in a rivalry game like this... but I'd lean pretty heavily toward the Frogs. To walk into Fayetteville and hold that team to seven points is pretty impressive. The Mustangs have some great firepower with Sutton. I've been a huge fan of his for some time now. One of my friends/mentors, Boyd Waggoner played WR at SMU with Don Meredith in the late 1950s. Boyd's watched some pretty good WRs come through The Hilltop... but Sutton seems different. He's able to high-point the ball and do all that... but he also seems to have a great knack for taking off after the catch, as we saw last week vs UNT. The line on this game opened at 20 and has been bet down to 18.5, according to my morning paper. I would've loved to have taken the Mustangs to cover at 20. Now that it's coming down, I'd probably stay away from it. But it's hard for me to imagine the Frogs destroying a pretty potent Mustangs team. This isn't Navy or anything (Sorry, Chad).
