Baylor vs. Texas Tech Free Pick
In what figures to be an entertaining game, the Texas Tech Red Raiders will host the Baylor Bears at 3:30PM ET today.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Red Raiders are 17-point home underdogs versus the Bears, while the total currently sits at a whopping 88 points.
At one point this week this total reached 90.5 in Vegas, which was a record for an over/under at a sportbook. The total is completely justifed, as both of these teams have combined to score at least 94 points in their past three meetings. Baylor also leads the FBS with 379.7 rushing yards per game, ranks seventh in passing at 387.3, and leads all of college football in scoring with a 64.0 average.
The only concern is the health of Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who was banged up last week in the Red Raiders' 55-52 loss to TCU last week. Assuming he plays, the combined score should reach one hundred. The over is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams.
