TCU is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games and 7-17 ATS in their last 24 October games. The over is 4-1 in TCU’s last 5 games. Kansas is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games. The over is 19-8-1 in Kansas’ last 28 games. The underdog is 7-3 ATS in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.
This is not the undefeated matchup that most people expected to begin the season, but that is exactly what we have here. Kansas was able to survive a very poor offensive game against Iowa State, while TCU dominated Oklahoma. Neither defense is very good and I expect both offenses to move the ball fairly easily. I like the over in this game.
