Matchup History

Kansas State’s 82-61 win back on February 7th, 2023, made it five straight meetings without back-to-back winners in this head-to-head matchup.


TCU is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 Thursday games. Kansas State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss.


I’m backing TCU here. I like this Kansas State team a lot but I’ve said it time and time again as of late, I’m concerned that the Wildcats are a little too reliant on their top guys like Nowell and Johnson. TCU suffered a big blow in the middle with Eddie Lampkin Jr. taking a leave of absence from the team, but this is still a deep enough TCU team that has the benefit of getting Mike Miles Jr. back in the lineup as he was there for TCU’s big win over K-State this year but when he wasn’t it was all Wildcats. I think that TCU gets it done here so I’ll lay the bucket with the Horned Frogs in this one.
