Against The Spread Pick
In a matchup that pits two struggling conference opponents against each other, Kansas State and TCU both look to snap their losing streaks. Kansas State has been playing the better basketball of late, losing by 10 or less in all four games of their losing streak. The Wildcats managed to put down West Virginia last month which was a notable win. TCU on the other hand is coming off of a 46 point rout at the hands of Oklahoma putting their current losing streak at 6. In their last five meetings Kansas State is 4-1 against the spread versus TCU and 8-4 against the spread in their last 12 February games. On the flip the Horned Frogs are 0-6 against the spread in their last six games and 2-5 against the spread in their last seven home games against the Wildcats. Kansas State covers the points in Fort Worth.
Over Under Pick
This is a game that is going to be decided by who plays defense better. Both teams have bad offenses, however, TCU and Kansas State both are averaging over 64 points a game. TCU’s defense ranks 200th in opponent’s field goal percentage and gives up an average of 71.3 points per game. Kansas State has the advantage here ranking 159th in opponents field goal percentage and only allowing an average of 64 points per game. While it will be a low scoring game both teams should be able to run their scores into the 60s. The play here is the over.
