Texas vs. Texas Tech Expert Betting Predictions

Based on how Texas played against Alabama, Longhorns fans can be forgiven if they believe they have a shot at the College Football Playoff. But almost beating Alabama isn’t the same asbeating the Crimson Tide. In any case, Texas ran all over Texas San-Antonio last week. They won’t run all over the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Texas Tech is a decent football team. The 27-10 loss to NC State last Saturday concerns, but the game was a road contest and the Wolfpack should win the ACC this season. Not only that, but this is a rivalry game that happens in Lubbock. Tech does enough to cover and don’t be surprised if the Red Raiders have a shot in the fourth quarter to win straight up.
