The Red Raiders are 3-2 overall and 3-2 ATS. The Texas Tech Red Raiders continue their tradition of having an explosive offense but have struggled on defense again this season which has cost them games against West Virginia and Ole Miss. Texas Tech is 3-2 ATS overall, 1-0 ATS after a loss, 1-0 ATS on the road, 1-2 ATS as an underdog and 1-1 ATS in conference games.

TCU is 2-3 ATS overall, 2-0 ATS after a win, 0-2 ATS at home, 1-3 ATS as a favorite and 0-2 ATS in conference games.

Shawn Robinson leads the team in passing with 1,023 yards for 7 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Darius Anderson leads the team in rushing with 316 yards and 2 touchdowns. Jalen Reagor leads the team in receiving with 29 receptions for 359 yards and 2 touchdowns.

TCU gets the win in a shootout

Both of these teams have above average offenses that can move the ball against anyone, but Texas Tech has the 2nd best scoring offense in college football and is the 9th worst pass defense. I look for this game to be high scoring with both teams moving the ball through the air in a shootout and well past the total in this one. Make sure to bet this match-up on BookMaker.
