The Horned Frogs are 12-1 overall and 8-5 ATS.   The TCU Horned Frogs have only lost one game this season and have won nine games since their loss and are now ranked 25th in college basketball.

Kansas Jayhawks

The Jayhawks are 12-2 overall and 6-8 ATS.   The Kansas Jayhawks are 12-2 on the season and are ranked 7th in college basketball, but lost one of their top players in Udoka Azubuike for the season due to injury, so it will be interesting to see how they adjust without him.

Kansas gets the win, but TCU gets the cover

Both of these teams have a chance to not only make the NCAA Tournament in March but also to win the Big 12 championship this season. TCU has only lost one game on the season, but this will be their toughest opponent to date. TCU is 7-4 ATS after a win while Kansas is 4-8 ATS after a win I look for both of these trends to continue with a Kansas win, but a TCU cover on Wednesday. Make sure to bet this match-up on BetDSI.
