9 p.m. ET: Kansas at TCU (-2, 149.5)
Kansas (22-5, ranked 5th) has won four straight and just took down Baylor 87-71, easily covering as 5-point home favorites. Meanwhile, TCU (18-9, ranked 22nd) just snapped a four-game losing streak with a 100-75 win over Oklahoma State, cruising as 6.5-point home favorites. This line opened with TCU listed as a short 1-point home favorite. The public thinks the wrong team is favored and 65% of bets are taking the point with road dog Kansas. However, despite Kansas being the popular bet we've actually seen the line move further toward TCU -1 to -2. This signals sharp reverse line movement on TCU, with pros backing the contrarian favorite and fading the trendy dog. TCU is only receiving 35% of bets bet 60% of money, a sharp bet discrepancy in their favor. TCU is 12-3 at home this season. Big 12 home favorites are 43-14 (75%) straight up in conference play. Pros have also hit the under, dropping the total from 151 to 149.5.
