Betting on the TCU Horned Frogs (-28.5)
TCU is hobbling at the moment with two losses in its last four games, including the Horned Frogs’ 52-46 home loss to Oklahoma.
It’s been clear thus far on the season that TCU can flat out score but Gary Patterson’s boys still have major holes on their defense to address if they were to be totally reckoned with the rest of the year. TCU is putting up 43.4 points per game, which is good for 12th nationally, while it is allowing 31.4 per contest.
The good news is that no one can confuse Kansas’ offense with Oklahoma. As bad as its defense has been, TCU could handle the Jayhawks’ attack, especially if the Horned Frogs’ offense pile up enough points to act as buffer for any mess their defense will create.
The Horned Frogs should find success in moving the chains and finding the red zone on Saturday with Kansas not really the type of team that scares foes with its defense, giving up 432.5 total yards per game.
TCU is 4-0 SU in its last four meetings with the Jayhawks.
Betting on the Kansas Jayhawks (+28.5)
Kansas has bigger problems than the Horned Frogs but it can ease a large part of its anxiety by scoring an upset win over TCU this Saturday. As mentioned earlier, that hasn’t happened in the past four games of this head-to-head series, but at least the Jayhawks managed to cover the spread in each of those meetings.
The Jayhawks were mugged last week, losing to Texas Tech, 55-19—their third-straight loss. The defense simply haven’t shown enough this season to convince people it could take care of TCU. There are, however, a few bright spots on Kansas’ stop unit. Take for example it ranking second in the conference in tackles for loss with 9.8 per game.
If that defense played consistently for the entire game, Kansas could keep it close enough for the Jayhawks to cover that huge 28.5-point spread—at least.
TCU (-28.5) crushes Kansas, 58-17.
