Houston vs Texas Tech Betting Prediction 

Texas Tech found success with the offense on Thursday, but it’s not going to be the same in this game. Houston on the season is giving up only 56.5 points and their defense is going to lockdown again in this game. Houston’s offense is also going to have no issue running up the score against the Texas Tech defense and this game will get out of hand early. Back Houston against the spread.
