One year after going 2-9-1 against the spread, TCU was dominant against the spread in 2022. The Horned Frogs went 9-2-1 in the regular season and – after failing to cover against Kansas State in the Big 12 Championship while covering against Michigan in the College Football Playoff semifinal – enter the national championship with a 10-3-1 ATS record.

Will they improve to 10-4-1 on Jan. 9 at SoFi Stadium?
