TCU

The Horned Frogs are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games. Texas Christian is 1-4 ATS in its last five Big 12 games.

Prediction:

Iowa State is solid on both ends of the floor, but Texas Christian seems to match up fairly well and is in need of a big win. I'm certainly not saying the Horned Frogs will get it here, but I expect this game to remain competitive. I think the spread is a bit too wide and am putting my faith in TCU here.
