Arizona putting up points
The Arizona Wildcats were upset at Hawaii to open the season three weeks ago, but they bounced back last weekend with a 65-41 win over Northern Arizona. Arizona is 0-2 against the spread while going over the total in both games.
Arizona has been able to put up big numbers on offense, but the Wildcats are also giving up big numbers. Zona is averaging 51.5 points and 629.5 yards per game on offense while giving up 43 points and 518.5 yards per contest. Khalil Tate is leading the team with 499 passing yards and five touchdowns while rushing for 109 yards and a score. J.J. Taylor is the leading rusher with 169 yards and two touchdowns while Tayvian Cunningham is the leading receiver with seven catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns.
Texas Tech seeks 3-0 start
The Texas Tech football team is off to a 2-0 start to the season thanks to lopsided wins over Montana State and UTEP. The Red Raiders were able to cover the spread in both games while going under the total in both as well.
Tech has been pretty impressive on defense this year, holding opponents to just 6.5 points and 210 yards per game. Offensively, the Red Raiders are putting up 41.5 points and 557.5 yards per contest. Alan Bowman is leading the team right now with 696 passing yards and five touchdowns. TJ Vasher has been his top target with 12 receptions for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Armand Shyne is the leading rusher with 170 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries.
College Football Betting Trends
Arizona has hit the over in five straight games overall and in 14 of their last 20 following a win.
The Red Raiders have hit the under in six of their last eight road games but have hit the over in 23 of their last 34 non-conference games.
I am not sure there is a total low enough for this game. Arizona is going to score points at home and the defense is going to give up points. Texas Tech is already a strong offensive team and now it gets a chance to face a really poor Arizona defense. I would expect points in nearly every possession, as both teams should be able to find multiple explosive plays. Grab your popcorn and enjoy the show, as I think these two can push for 100 points tonight.
