The Jayhawks will get the opportunity to move on up when they face the TCU Horned Frogs.

Why bet on the Kansas Jayhawks

Last week was a tough one for Kansas (17-4, 5-3) as they had back to back games against ranked opponents. They were able to come out of those games with a split, and are now sitting at #7 in the nation. Things figure to be a little easier for them this week, as they open with a home game against Kansas State before heading out on the road for this one. The Jayhawks already have a 70-63 win over TCU under their belts this season, but there were some who viewed that result as a little underwhelming. They will be out to show that they are a good deal better than that performance, which could mean trouble for the Horned Frogs. Kansas are averaging 84.0 PPG, and are giving up 70.0 PPG.

Why bet on the TCU Horned Frogs

It has been a bit of a disaster for TCU (10-12, 1-8) in conference play, but you have to feel a little bit of sympathy for them given the level of competition that currently exists in the Big 12. While it would be easy to say that TCU are like lambs being led to the slaughter in this one, you need to look at how they played the last time they faced Kansas. Losing by 7 points on the road to a top 10 ranked opponent is nothing to be ashamed about, and you have to figure that they may even do better with a raucous home crowd cheering them on. It’s going to be a tall order, though, as the Horned Frogs don’t have a win over a ranked opponent this season. TCU are averaging 68.7 PPG, and are giving up 69.5 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

When you look at how TCU have performed against ranked opponents this year, their 7-point loss to Kansas is a bit of an anomaly. The margin of defeat is usually a good deal larger, and I think that’s what we can expect in this one.
