Key Betting Trends
The Jayhawks are a surprising 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the underdog is a perfect 6-0 against the spread in the last six games played between Kansas and TCU. The Horned Frogs are also 0-11 against the spread in their last 11 home games, are 1-10 against the number in their last 11 games played on grass, and have failed to cover in 13 of their last 19 games played overall.
OUR PREDICTION: The under has hit in four of the last five meetings between these two teams, is a perfect 6-0 in the Jayhaws' last six games played on grass and is 18-7 in Kansas' last 25 road games. On the other side, the under is 10-4 in TCU's last 14 games overall, is 5-2 in the Horned Frogs' last seven home games and is 5-1 in their last six conference games. After several big-time matchups against stout Big 12 competition, I could see TCU trying to sleepwalk through this one on Saturday night. And even if they do come out flat, they still have enough talent to shut down a Kansas offense averaging just 24.7 points per game this season (93rd in the nation).
