College Basketball Betting Trends

Iowa State

The Cyclones are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games. Iowa State is 1-4 ATS in its last five Big 12 games.

TCU

The Horned Frogs are 1-6 ATS in their last seven Big 12 games. Texas Christian is 9-4 ATS in its last 13 home games.

Prediction:

Texas Christian has dropped three in a row, but has shown it has the ability to beat anyone in the conference when at its best including Iowa State. Being at home should help the Horned Frogs as the home crowd could be the deciding factor in what is bound to be a tightly contested game. The Cyclones are not as good on the defensive end as on offense and it will likely hurt here as TCU has the comfortability factor of shooting in its own arena.
