College Basketball Betting Trends
The Jayhawks are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall. Kansas is 0-4 ATS in its last four road games.
The Horned Frogs are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 home games. Texas Christian is 13-6 ATS in its last 19 games overall.
I'm not ready to dismiss Kansas' struggles on the road. With TCU playing excellent basketball at home, it is rightfully favored. There is just something a little off with this Jayhawks squad and there is no doubt the Horned Frogs will be geared up for this one considering the reputation Kansas has in the Big 12. Go with TCU to continue its strong play as of late.
