Texas Tech Betting Trends

The Red Raiders have covered the spread in four of their last five games dating back to last season. They're also 5-2 against the number in their last seven road games and are 4-1 against the spread in their last five non-conference games. Texas Tech is 4-0 at the betting window in its last four games versus a team with a winning record, too.

Houston Betting Trends

The Cougars are an impressive 14-3 against the spread in their last 17 games played in the month of September. They're also 18-6 at the betting window in their last 24 non-conference games but are just 3-7 against the number in their last 10 games overall. They're also 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games against teams with winning records.

OUR PREDICTION: Houston hasn't scored much in its first two games (33 points versus Rice would constitute as a low-scoring output given how bad the Owls are), but I can't come to terms with taking the under in a Texas Tech game. The over is 12-2 in the Red Raiders' last 14 games versus a team with a winning record, is 5-1 in their last six road games and 4-1 in their last five games overall. Texas Tech is an over-producing machine.
