Kansas TCU Betting Predictions – Kansas Seeks To Maintain Control Of Big 12 Race

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/4/2013 5:57:42 PM

The Kansas Jayhawks were stunned at home by the Oklahoma State Cowboys this past Saturday. Was that loss the beginning of a slide or just a blip on the radar screen for KU?

Why Kansas Will Win

When NCAA football betting gurus turn from football and move to basketball as their college sports point of focus, they will notice that the basketball version of the TCU Horned Frogs does not have the chops the Frogs possess on a college football field. TCU has been awful in Big 12 play this season, going 0-8 in its first season in this power conference. TCU was able to pick off good teams at times in its previous home, the Mountain West Conference, but in the Big 12, the Frogs have looked lost. The Big 12, it needs to be said, is not particularly robust or contentious. There are four decent teams – Oklahoma State, Iowa State, Baylor, and Oklahoma – chasing the top two squads in the conference, Kansas and Kansas State. The inability of TCU to win even one game against the mid-tier and downmarket programs in the league is a loud indictment of the Horned Frogs and their lack of basketball acumen. The Jayhawks are vulnerable after their loss to Oklahoma State, but it doesn't seem that TCU is the kind of team that can exploit KU's weaknesses.

The other slant to take on this game from a Kansas perspective is that the Jayhawks should be very mad after losing to Oklahoma State. The Jayhawks have won eight straight Big 12 championships and are intending to go for number nine. The notion that KU could lose two straight Big 12 games is hard to place your trust in as a bettor to begin with. The notion that TCU could be the engineer of that upset is even more remote.

Why TCU Will Win

Legal online sports betting analysts are fairly convinced that this is the time of year in which Kansas is going to have to muddle through without its best stuff. The Jayhawks were not able to respond to the moment very well on Saturday against Oklahoma State. One thing to point out about that 85-80 loss is that Oklahoma State had not yet won a road game in the Big 12 this season. The Cowboys were the Big 12 contender least expected to break Kansas' 33-game home-court winning streak. The fact that Kansas let down its guard against Oklahoma State should be seen as alarming for the Jayhawks. KU freshman Ben McLemore will probably be able to enter the 2013 NBA Draft if he wants to – he is that talented – but the loss to Oklahoma State indicated just how far McLemore has to go in terms of handling the mental challenge of being a marked man on a marked team.

Who Will Win

This is a wipeout in the making. Kansas should have steam coming from its ears, while TCU is utterly impotent at both ends of the floor. The Jayhawks should roll here.
