Why TCU can cover

TCU has passed every test so far this year en route to its 11-0 start to the season. The Horned Frogs are now looking to take their next step toward a berth in the College Football Playoff on Saturday. They have already clinched their spot in the Big 12 title game on Dec. 3 against either No. 12 Kansas State or No. 23 Texas. 

Quarterback Max Duggan threw for 327 yards while also leading the team in rushing with 50 yards on eight carries against Baylor last week. Wide receiver Taye Barber had his second 100-yard game of the season, catching five passes for 108 yards. Iowa State is not going to be playing in a bowl game for the first time since 2016, so the Cyclones could be lacking some motivation on Saturday. 

Why Iowa State can cover

Iowa State has dominated this matchup in recent years, winning and covering the spread in four of the last five matchups. The Cyclones have only lost one game by more than one possession this season, so their 4-7 record is extremely deceiving. They are facing a TCU team that became the first team since 1975 to win seven straight games by 10 points or less. 

The Horned Frogs will have to win this game by double digits to cover the spread, and that has simply not been part of their formula this year. Iowa State is led by sophomore quarterback Hunter Dekkers, who has thrown for 2,938 yards and 18 touchdowns this season. He threw for 294 yards and a touchdown against Texas Tech last week, so he is in good form heading into this matchup.
