The TCU Horned Frogs have the ability to hang in this game and did beat Baylor in the last meeting about 11 months ago. However, the Baylor Bears have been so consistent both SU and ATS over the years that they're a team you just don't step in front of. If you just blindly backed Baylor the last two years, you're sitting on a pretty penny. I have no choice but to eat the chalk here because of how consistent Baylor is.
