Oklahoma State has won three of its four games played away from Stillwater this year, as it aims for its fifth consecutive win over Texas Tech, including three in a row in Lubbock. The Cowboys have scored 20 or more points in 46 consecutive games dating back to the start of the 2010 campaign, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines in Week 10. The program has also won its last nine games played in the Lone Star State. Oklahoma State is 8-6 SU and 7-7 ATS on the road the last two-plus seasons.
The Cowboys and Oklahoma Sooners are the only two teams in the Big 12 Conference that have posted a winning record against the league every season since 2008, which is important to consider when making your college football betting picks Saturday night. Oklahoma State is one of only nine teams in the country that rank in the top 25 nationally in both scoring offense and defense. Through seven games in 2013, the team leads the Big 12 and ranks seventh nationally with a plus-1.3 turnover ratio.
Texas Tech is coming off its first loss under head coach Kliff Kingsbury, as it dropped a 38-30 road decision to the Oklahoma Sooners last Saturday. The Red Raiders have allowed 45.7 points during their four-game losing streak in this series, while the offense has managed just 15.2 points. It’s important to point out that the program is 8-0 all-time the week following a loss to the Sooners. Texas Tech is 4-1 SUATS when the betting line is +3 to -3 the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 3-2 in that situation.
The Red Raiders are third nationally in causing opponents to go three-and-out 6.33 times per game, while they are fourth in terms of scoring defense in the conference in allowing 21.1 points. Texas Tech is fifth in college football in averaging 537.1 yards per game, with the passing game playing a major part in that success. Kingsbury has a youthful roster that’s growing up in his first go around, as he has played 10 true freshmen already this season.
Sports bettors will likely back the Cowboys due to the Red Raiders being 1-7 SUATS in November the last two-plus seasons.
