They will be tested again this week when they head to College Station to face the Texas A&M Aggies (2-4 SU, 1-5 ATS). The Red Raiders have won four straight between these two Big 12 South rivals and will look to continue their dominance.
Conversely, the Aggies have lost four straight games ATS against the NCAA betting line and have lost their first Big 12 games by an average of 21.5 PPG. The mad scientist Mike Leach has brought Texas Tech up to only their second Top 10 ranking this decade behind what may be the most explosive offense in the country.
So far this season, QB Graham Harrell again leads the Big 12 in passing with 2311 yards and 20 touchdowns against only three interceptions. His favorite target, WR Michael Crabtree, is also atop the Big 12 in his position category, having caught 43 balls for 653 yards and 10 touchdowns.
After uncharacteristically starting the season with two games that went under the ‘total’ per the college football odds, NCAA betting fans can note that the Red Raiders have fallen back into their high scoring ways and have played their last two games over the ‘total’. New coach Mike Sherman has thus far done little to differentiate his tenure from that of Dennis Franchione.
The Aggies opened up with a stunning 18-14 college football betting home loss to Arkansas State and have struggled ever since. The team that once took pride in their Wrecking Crew defense has seen the Aggies give up over 40 points in three games already this season, which included two at Kyle Field where they play in front of 80,000+ rabid fans.
Further, a team that is usually solid at home both SU and ATS has really struggled this year, with their only SU win being against Army and with the Aggies being winless ATS against the closing college football wagering line. The NCAA odds show the Red Raiders as three touchdown favorites (-21) in this game.
