Week 15 Betting: Iowa State battles TCU

The TCU Horned Frogs need a win when they face the Iowa State Cyclones this weekend to keep their hopes alive for a Big 12 conference championship and a College Football Playoff berth.

The 10-1 Frogs have won six straight SU and are a perfect 6-0 SU and ATS on home turf this season. TCU also owns the nation's fifth-ranked offense, with the point total going OVER in eight of their 11 games this season.

The 2-9 Cyclones are currently enduring a five-game SU losing streak, 1-4 ATS, and have suffered two outright losses as favorites in their last three outings. However, Iowa State is 2-0 ATS in their last two meetings with the Horned Frogs, including a 37-23 win as seven-point underdogs in their last visit to TCU in 2012.

Its the biggest spread facing Iowa State since they got 35 points vs Kansas State in 1998. And TCU is 8-2 ATS past 10 games when laying 30 points or more, so they are not intimidated by a pile of chalk.
