No. 4 TCU rolled through its first four Big 12 games by an average of more than three touchdowns, winning with a great mix in all three phases.  This one featured a line of -6.5 favoring the Horned Frogs.  LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING will be available.

Outside of Penn State, TCU appeared to be the second most wagered on side at 86% Friday morning.  The line was trending slightly upwards.   This is a dangerous game with both teams ranked but Texas Christian rated much lower than its number 4 ranking might suggest though the line is right on the money we believe.

Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.com points out that Iowa State's defense may be on a tear of late, but “its weakness is TCU's strength”. That’s because the Cyclones rank last in the Big 12 in third down defense (44.1 percent conversion), while TCU leads the FBS in third-down conversion percentage (56.2).”
