After suffering three successive defeats on their recent road trip, No. 15 Kansas returns to Allen Fieldhouse on Thursday night aiming to stop that skid against TCU in a Big 12 conference matchup. The Jayhawks start as 14.5 point favorites against the Horn Frogs in the latest William Hill Sportsbook odds with the Over-Under at 136.5.
How To Watch No. 15 Kansas vs. TCU
Kansas (10-5, 4-4 Big 12) is coming off a disappointing 75-68 defeat to Oklahoma on Saturday in Norman, which was its third defeat in a row on the road in conference play. It is also the first time Bill Self’s side was losing three straight since the 2012-13 campaign.
TCU, meanwhile, comes into this game on a three-game skid as well, and suffered an 82-46 embarrassing loss to the Sooners on Jan. 12. Frogs (9-5, 2-4) were beaten 93-64 in the last meeting with Kansas on Jan. 5 and will be hoping to avoid the series sweep Wednesday night.
The Jayhawks, who are 6-8 Against the Spread coming into this encounter, have slipped to seventh in the Big 12 Conference Standings and cannot afford another defeat if they hope to stay in touching distance with the likes of No. 2 Baylor, No. 5 Texas and even the 24th ranked Sooners.
