NCAA Betting: Texas Longhorns vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

We offer another great NCAA betting match-up for football bettors to dive into Saturday when the Longhorns invade Lubbock to duke it out with the Red Raiders.

The Longhorns (8-0, 7-1 ATS) are the unanimous choice as the #1 team in the country in this week’s AP Poll, but the Red Raiders will look for the biggest win in school history to improve on their #6 ranking.  Texas has dominated this series of late, covering six of their L/9 against T-Tech (8-0, 3-2-1 ATS).

Last season was a shootout, as Texas won 59-43 in Austin.  Texas is no longer amongst the unbeaten teams against the college football betting line in the country, but they kept the inside track for the National Championship when they held off Oklahoma State by a 28-24 final count last Saturday.

The 11.5-point spread was just a bit much for NCAA betting fans to handle.  QB Colt McCoy completed 38-of-45 passes, and racked up 432 total yards and three total scores.  WR Jordan Shipley came up with his second straight tremendous game, hauling in 15 catches for 168 yards and a touchdown.

The game snapped Texas’ eight-game ATS winning streak.  Their pass defense ranks 110th in the nation, and will be tested against the Air Raid attack this weekend.  College football betting gurus who backed Texas Tech over the weekend looked like geniuses.  They covered the two-point spread on the NCAA betting line by 40 points.

They mauled Kansas 63-21.  After throwing for another 386 yards and five touchdowns, QB Graham Harrell leads the country with 3,147 passing yards and is third in the nation with 28 touchdown passes thrown.  Darcel McBath paced a strong defensive effort with three interceptions, and now leads the team with five picks on the season.

The Air Raid offense ranks #2 in total yards (556.9), #1 in passing yards (418.4), and #3 in points per game (48.0).  Oddsmakers have made the Longhorns 6-point road favorites.
