TCU is 22-51 against the spread in their last 73 home games, 19-40 against the spread against the Big 12, and 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games. Kansas is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games, 5-1 against the spread following a win, and 26-10-1 against the spread against the Big 12.
The total is set at 131 but I see this one staying under that number and that is my free pick. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will put that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
