Current Point Spread & Over/Under Total
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Cougars are 6.5-point home favorites to beat the Red Raiders, who opened as 7-point underdogs. As for the total, the number hit the board at 72 but has been bet down to 71.5.
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.
