Texas Tech is 7-0 SU and 5-2 ATS through seven games of the 2013 campaign, as it hits the road for a second consecutive week after picking up a 37-27 victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers as 4.5-point favorites last Saturday. The Red Raiders have won the statistical battle by a triple-digit margin in their last three contests, with most of the yardage disparity being in the passing game. True freshman quarterback Davis Webb has thrown for 400-plus passing yards in two games this season, which can’t be ignored when making your college football betting picks. Texas Tech is 6-2 ATS on the road in its last eight opportunities.
The Red Raiders will be out for revenge in suffering a 41-20 loss to the Sooners as four-point home underdogs last year, which is important to consider when looking over the college football odds page. Texas Tech is off to a 4-0 start in Big 12 Conference play for the first time since 2008, while it has won each of its opportunities on the road in that situation. Offensively, wide receivers Jace Amaro and Bradley Marquez are two key weapons for Webb to target, as they combined for 17 catches and 248 yards last week.
Oklahoma bounced back from its first loss of the season, as it came away with a 34-19 victory over the Kansas Jayhawks as 21-point road favorites last Saturday, while winning the statistical battle by 214 yards. The Sooners earned their 15th straight win the week after playing the Texas Longhorns—clearly demonstrating that longtime head coach Bob Stoops is able to get his program focused under tough circumstances. Oklahoma is 2-6 ATS in its last eight home games, with the UNDER on a 4-1 run in that situation.
The Sooners may be a bit overvalued in this spot, as last week’s win isn’t exactly a game changer, considering the Jayhawks have dropped their last 24 games versus conference opponents. Oklahoma will likely move the football against Texas Tech in Norman, as it has scored at least 28 points in its last five home games in this series, but quarterback Blake Bell must play better under center. He completed just 15 of 25 passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns with an interception.
Sports bettors will likely back the Sooners due to the home team being 5-2 ATS in the last seven overall meetings in this series.
