College football betting fans saw a thrilling 39-33 Texas Tech win in the final moments last year as the Red Raiders got the cash as 3.5-point home dogs against the NCAA football odds. Texas opened as 16.5-point college football betting home favorites for this matchup.
Bet on the Texas Tech Red Raiders looks good for the 2009 college football betting season as they are 2-0 straight up and 1-0 against the NCAA football odds. Last week the Red Raiders scored a 55-10 college football betting win and cover over Rice as 27-point home chalks. Quarterback Taylor Potts was 36-57 for 456 yards and threw 7 touchdown passes.
Tramain Swindall had 6 catches for 123 yards and 2 touchdowns and Lyle Leong caught 9 passes for 117 yards and 3 touchdowns. The #2 Texas Longhorns have been a college football betting overlay so far with a record of 2-0 straight up but 0-2 against the spread.
Last week Texas had a tough assignment at hard fighting Wyoming as they beat the Cowboys 41-10 and just missed covering the spread as 31.5-point chalks. Quarterback Colt McCoy had a strong college football betting performance as he was 30-47 for 337 yards with 3 touchdown passes.
His top receiver was James Kirkendoll who had 7 catches for 102 yards and 1 touchdown. Texas outgained Wyoming 538-273 and outscored the Cowboys 28-0 in the second half. In this series the home team has covered the college football betting board in the last 4 consecutive head to head meetings.
The two teams have gone over the total in 6 out of their last 7 head to head college football betting matchups.
The Red Raiders again have one of the most prolific passing attacks in the nation but this will be a stern revenge test against a Texas team that has not forgotten their bitter defeat at Lubbock last year as it may well have cost them a shot at the national title.
