Baylor currently a road favorite after the line opened at PK for Friday's matchup in Fort Worth

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Thanksgiving Week lines are out, and after opening at PK, the line for the Baylor Bears' matchup with the TCU Horned Frogs immediately shifted to Baylor -1.5, where it rests right now. This is likely owing to the uncertainty surrounding TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin and his status for Friday's matchup on ESPN. While the Baylor quarterback situation is just about as murky as TCU's, both of Baylor's options in Jarrett Stidham and Chris Johnson had excellent games in a massive win over Oklahoma State last night in Stillwater. According to the regular author of this post, one of the TCU quarterback's names roughly translates to "cabbage beluga."

So, they've got that going for them, I guess. Or the Bears do. It all depends on perspective. At this point though, my wholly uneducated guess is that Boykin will play on Friday night. I have no specific information on that, but that's my guess.

Other lines from Vegas Insider:

  • Texas Tech @ Texas (-2)
  • Oklahoma (-3.5) @ Oklahoma State
  • Kansas State (-21.5) @ Kansas
  • Iowa State @ West Virginia (-13.5)
  • Ohio State @ Michigan (-3, opened +2.5)
  • Notre Dame @ Stanford (-3, opened +2)
  • Alabama (-13) @ Auburn
  • Iowa (-3, opened -1) @ Nebraska

Penn State @ Michigan State doesn't have a line yet. Should be a really fun Thanksgiving slate of games.
