TCU vs. Kansas Prediction
The Kansas Jayhawks are massive home favorites on Thursday night versus visiting TCU but they’ve also had issues covering of late. Is KU a strong play as a home favorite tonight or is there a better option on the board?

TCU vs. Kansas College Basketball Prediction
Kansas should take out its frustrations tonight against one of the bottom feeders in the conference. The Jayhawks have lost three straight since beating Oklahoma 63-59 back on January 9, which includes a 75-68 loss to the Sooners in Norman last Saturday. After playing OK State, Baylor and Oklahoma, TCU will be a welcome sight for the home team tonight.
The Horned Frogs are just 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 road games when facing an opponent with a winning home record and are 3-10 at the betting window in their last 13 road games when facing a team with a home winning percentage that is greater than .600. TCU is also just 1-5 against the number in its last six games overall and is winless against the number in its last five games played on Thursday (whereas Kansas has covered in seven of its last eight games played on this day, for whatever reason).
