The Eastern Michigan Eagles have been downright terrible offensively in their two road games and are now going up against one of the better defenses in the country. The TCU Horned Frogs are coming off an ugly loss, but this is an expereinced team that should be able to bounce back. TCU hasn't been great against the number, which is the one pause I have with laying double-digit chalk, but Eastern Michigan hasn't played well at all for the most part of the season. So, TCU and the chalk has to be the play in this spot.
