KANSAS JAYHAWKS VS. TCU HORNED FROGS PREDICTIONS

The Jayhawks had their four-game win streak snapped at Baylor on Saturday, falling 80-70 as 3-point underdogs as the OVER connected. Poor shooting was the reason for the setback, hitting just 34% (24-of-70) from behind the arc, while knocking down 25% (7-of-28) from behind the 3-poinbt line. They were able to hang in the game by hitting 75% (15-of-20) from the free-throw line, while turning it over just four times. KU also matched Baylor with 37 rebounds apiece, while both Christian Braun (17 points, 10 rebounds) and David McCormack (10 points, 13 rebounds) posted double-doubles.

TCU also had to bounce back after a loss, topping Texas Tech by a 69-66 score as 4.5-point underdogs at home on Saturday. Still, the Horned Frogs are in a bit of a tailspin with just two wins in the past six games overall, but TCU has covered three in a row, while also cashing the OVER in each of the three outings. The Frogs were a solid 50% (25-of-50) from the floor, including 38% (6-of-16) from downtown. The Horned Frogs might've been a lot better if not for a 57% (13-of-23) mark from the charity stripe.

KANSAS JAYHAWKS VS. TCU HORNED FROGS BETTING CONCLUSION

The Jayhawks might have lost last time out, but this is a team which still sits in first place in the Big 12 with two games in hand against Baylor. It just needs to keep winning, and another regular-season title is within reach for head coach Bill Self and his group. Kansas might've fallen to Baylor, its biggest competition for the Big 12 title, but it won't drop a game to TCU.

The Horned Frogs are a middle-of-the-read team which should be able to secure a spot in the NCAA Tournament, but they're unlikely to go very deep into March. The Jayhawks, on the other hand, have the look for a Final Four team. It isn't going to falter down the stretch a team it is much better than. Look for Kansas to win this one by at least three buckets, perhaps even double digits, and the trends point to an OVER result, too.
