The Horned Frogs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win. The Bears are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. Big 12. The Horned Frogs are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
Baylor has established itself as one of the better teams in the Big 12 and plays at a higher level at home. TCU just isn't consistent enough to hang with a team like the Bears, and they already got blown out by a banged up OK State club. I'll take Baylor in a blowout.
