Betting on the TCU Horned Frogs (+7.0)
Record: 14-4 Overall/3-3 Conference
TCU is looking to recover from its 74-65 road loss to the West Virginia Mountaineers last Wednesday. The Horned Frogs have lost three of their last four games, with the only victory over that stretch being their 82-68 stomping of the Kansas State Wildcats last Saturday at home. Despite their poor form of late, TCU remains a big threat to anyone in the Big 12, in large part because of its defense. The Horned Frogs are 21st in the nation in adjusted defensive efficiency and fourth in the same department in Big 12 play. They are so toxic against opposing ballhandlers, which is why TCU is No. 1 in the conference with a 13.5 steals percentage. The Horned Frogs are also tough to solve around the rim, as they’re 33rd in the nation with a 13.0 block rate.
TCU is 6-3-1 against the spread in its last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Kansas Jayhawks (-7.0)
Record: 16-2 Overall/5-1 Conference
Kansas got shocked in its last game, falling victim to Kansas State in Manhattan last Tuesday via overtime, 83-82. The Jayhawks are still tough to beat. They are the defending national champions after all. Kansas losing two games in a row has yet to happen this season and it’s playing in Lawrence this Saturday, so most signs point to a great result for the Jayhawks versus the Horned Frogs. Kansas has been struggling with the 3-ball of late, having connected on only 16 of their 61 attempts from behind the arc, but that’s not going to make them stop launching deep shots. They are third in the Big 12 with a 37.1 3FG% and fifth with a 51.2 eFG. Jalen Wilson, who is leading the Jayhawks this season with 20.8 points per game, just went off for 38 in the loss to Kansas State.
Kansas is 5-5 against the spread in its last 10 games overall.
Kansas wins, 75-66.
