Texas Tech is 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games, 4-6 on the money line, and the over is 5-5.

Texas is 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games, 6-4 on the money line, and the over is 6-4.

Texas Tech has been off to a hot start, and they have a good matchup here against the Longhorns. Texas has not been able to produce through the air. The Red Raiders should be able to stack the box and bolster their already potent run defense to slow down the Longhorns offense. Texas Tech has also shown they have a balanced attack on offense, so should be able to find some holes against a Longhorns defense that has allowed 245 yards per game on the ground this season. Give me the Red Raiders to keep this one close and cover.
