The Red Raiders will travel to Manhattan to take on the Kansas State Wildcats (3-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) in their first B12 match-up of the year. Texas Tech is coming off of a bye week, but two weeks ago stomped FCS Massachusetts 56-14 in Lubbock.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats are coming off of two straight high scoring games that sailed over the ‘total’ per the closing NCAA lines. The Red Raiders have the good fortune in possessing two of the top Heisman Trophy candidates to lead their offense in QB Graham Harrell and WR Michael Crabtree.
Last year’s Sammy Baugh Trophy winner, Harrell currently has thrown for a whopping 1573 yards and 12 touchdowns with three interceptions in 2008, while Biletnikoff Trophy winner Crabtree has caught 29 balls for 457 yards and six touchdowns.
It’s somewhat surprising that though the Red Raiders are still putting up gaudy numbers, both of their games have gone under the college football wagering ‘total’ this season. Also interesting to note is that they are 19-10 ATS against the NCAA gambling line since 2002 in the position of road favorite.
In their last two games against Louisville and Louisiana-Lafayette, the Wildcats defense has given up 75 points, a number that has meant consecutive losses against the football betting odds and that has Harrell licking his chops. However, Kansas State has a high-scoring offense of their own led by QB Josh Freeman that is averaging 46.3 PPG.
Last week against the Ragin’ Cajuns, Freeman led the offense to 470 total yards and 30 first downs and accounted for five touchdowns in the Wildcats’ 45-37 win. In the last meeting between these two schools, the Red Raiders threw for 669 yards in an easy 59-20 NCAA gambling victory over the Wildcats.
The Red Raiders find themselves 7.5-point road favorites according to the college football betting line.
