Horned Frogs Aim to End Home Slide in Season Finale Against Wildcats

Kyle Hicks

The TCU Horned Frogs will be gunning for their first straight-up win at home in their past four when they wrap up the Big 12 regular season schedule with a clash against the Kansas State Wildcats at Amon Carter Stadium. The Wildcats are on a 4-1 SU run but are a dismal 4-7 against the spread this season.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in Kansas State's last three games against TCU.
  • TCU is 18-6 SU in its last 24 games against its conference.
  • Kansas State is 8-3 ATS in its last 11 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.

The 6-5 Horned Frogs impressed in a 31-9 win over Texas as 3-point underdogs last weekend. TCU has won two of three SU and ATS, both as betting underdogs. But the Horned Frogs have failed to record consecutive SU wins over their past seven contests, are winless SU in three home dates against conference rivals, and just 1-5 ATS in six.

The Wildcats climbed to fourth in the conference standings with last week's 34-19 win over rival Kansas as 23.5-point home favorites. Kansas has tallied an average of 33.6 points per game over its past five, forcing the point total OVER in each of the past four. But the Wildcats are a middling 2-3 ATS on the road this season.

TCU outlasted the Wildcats for a 52-45 road victory a year ago, evening their all-time record against Kansas State at 2-2 SU, but failed to cover as 9-point road chalk.
