Texas Tech is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 road games. The under is 5-0 in Texas Tech’s last 5 games. Iowa State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games and 4-1 ATS I their last 5 home games. The over is 5-1 in Iowa State’s last 6 Wednesday games. The favorite is 5-0 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

This should be a very good game between two top 25 teams early in the Big 12 conference schedule. Iowa State’s only loss came to #1 Baylor by 5 points over the weekend, so they will be looking to get back on the winning track. Both of these teams play good defense and this is a complete toss up in my opinion. I am going to take Iowa State because they are at home.
