This San Diego State vs. TCU College Basketball betting preview is courtesy of where the line was Aztecs -10.5. 

San Diego State will look to extend the best start in school history when it opens Mountain West Conference play at TCU on Wednesday night. The Aztecs are 15-0 after beating Division III school Occidental, 93-50, last Friday for their most lopsided victory of the season. SDSU, third in the nation with a 51.0% FG Pct., shot a season-best 61.0% and outrebounded the Tigers, 42-13.

Eight of San Diego State's 15 wins have come away from home, including a 79-76 triumph at Gonzaga on Nov. 16. The Aztecs went 4-4 on the road in the MWC last season. They're led by Kawhi Leonard, who scores 15.7 PPG and pulls down 9.6 RPG. Leonard has scored in double-figures in 13 of 15 games and has nine double-doubles on the season. Billy White (10.5 PPG) averaged a team-high 16.5 points in two wins over TCU last season. He did not play against Occidental because of a sprained ankle, but should be in the lineup against the Horned Frogs.

TCU's leading scorer Ronnie Moss (15.3 PPG) is questionable for Wednesday after suffering a concussion in a 69-66 loss to Tulsa last Thursday. The Horned Frogs are coming off a 70-61 loss at Rice on Sunday without Moss. Hank Thorns (9.4 PPG, 5.7 APG) picked up the scoring in Moss' absence with a career-best 18 points and eight assists against the Owls. Garlon Green, who ranks second on TCU in scoring (11.9 PPG, 51.3% three-pointers), had 11 points versus Rice, but shot only 4-of-11 from the field.

Last season, San Diego State posted a 68-51 victory at Fort Worth on Feb. 16. Leonard had 18 points and White added 17 for the Aztecs, while Moss scored 15 for the Horned Frogs. TCU is 7-1 at home this season, but its history hasn't been good versus San Diego State.

The Horned Frogs have lost nine out of the last 10 meetings, including four straight.

76% at think that SDSU will not only stay undefeated, but cover the double digits.
