Point Spread: 29.00 | -105.00 Kansas (Home)
The Horned Frogs stock is at an all time high, but I think it's time to sell. TCU has bumped Alabama out of the fourth and final playoff spot, and it's ranked three spots ahead of a Baylor team that already beat them. They are being asked to cover an awfully big spread on the road this week at Kansas, especially when you consider that they barely avoided defeat at West Virginia in their last road game.
You might say "well West Virginia is a hell of a lot better than Kansas", and you might be right. But perhaps the gap is not as big as you think? Kansas lost 33-14 to the Mountaineers in Morgantown, and they also played relatively close games at home against Oklahoma State, and on the road at Texas Tech.
The Jayhawks won big over a very good Iowa State team at home last week, and they should be full of confidence heading into today's home game. The weather forecast in Lawrence Kansas is also calling for snow, and subzero temperatures, which might make it that much harder for TCU to run up the score.
