Texas is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games. The under is 4-0 in Texas’ last 4 road games. Texas Tech is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a loss. The over is 4-1 in Texas Tech’s last 5 September games. Texas is 9-3 ATS in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings.
Texas was able to bounce back after their heartbreaking loss to Alabama in Week 2 with a good win against UTSA. Texas Tech played well in their last game, but the turnovers were too much for them to overcome. This should be a very good game and I like Texas Tech with the points at home.
