Kansas Jayhawks vs TCU Horned Frogs Predictions, Picks, Odds and Betting Preview – October 21, 2017

The TCU Horned Frogs are 5-0 straight up in the series with the Kansas Jayhawks since they became rivals in the Big 12. But here’s the catch, Kansas is 5-0 against the spread (ATS) as they have managed to keep every game tight even though they have been coming in as sizable underdogs each and every time. Can the Jayhawks do more than just service sharp bettors when they meet the Frogs this Saturday Week 8 in Fort Worth Texas? What do you care – you’re hear to capitalize on that trend! You might want to register to bet on this one.

Betting Preview for the Kansas Jayhawks vs TCU Horned Frogs College Football Game in Week 8 2017

When: Saturday, October 21 2017, 8 PM EST

Line: Kansas Jayhawks (+39) TCU Horned Frogs (-39) – view all NCAA Football lines

TV Broadcast: ESPN

Betting on the Kansas Jayhawks 1-5 (+39)

Kansas is on a devastating five-game losing streak, falling more recently in Week 7 to Iowa State with a big fat zero in their scoreboard corner. On the day, the Jayhawks delivered a pitiful 106 yards and went only 2-for-19 on third and fourth-down conversions. Sure, the Jayhawks defense only gave up 318 yards, holding Iowa State to 106 rushing yards on 43 attempts, but then score still read 45-0 which is all anyone remembers here.

Kansas QB Peyton Bender (Washington State transfer) started the season by averaging 300 yards in his first three games, so the potential is there to score. If he and his team can muster up just 17 points and cut down on the mistakes, they can most certainly keep this game against TCU close, robbing the Horned Frogs of that gigantic spread.

Betting on the TCU Horned Frogs 6-0 (-39)

TCU is feeling pretty good about themselves, using Kansas State to jump up to a 6-0 record on the season. The Horned Frogs took an early 10-0 lead after one quarter and chipped away from there, covering the spread as seven-point road favorites over the Wildcats.

On the day, TCU outgained their Week 7 opponent by a total of 395-216 and boasted a 32-28 time of possession edge. TCU also went 9-for-18 on third and fourth-down conversions, while holding Kansas State to 2-for-16. Even more telling, is that the Frogs’ defense stopped the Wildcats twice on downs inside their own 10-yard line. Another final point to note for bettors, is that TCU has out rushed every one of their opponents in the 2017 season by 200-98.

Writer’s Prediction

This is a really inflated spread (-39). Sure, TCU will win, but can they cover? Smart money in this gives the points to TCU. Pick: TCU (-39)
