TCU vs. Baylor Prediction

I’m on TCU here. I get Baylor being favored at home but all these two teams have done for the most part during conference play is play close games and I honestly think this game ends up no different. TCU’s earned my respect for their play on the road and I think at worst, they keep this one within the number. Give me TCU and the points here.
