Texas has dropped three of its last four games, including a 23-0 decision to the Kansas State Wildcats as 9.5-point road underdogs last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for the first time in three contests. The Longhorns own a 48-15 advantage in this all-time series, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 10 college football betting picks, especially since they’ve captured 13 of the last 15 installments of Big 12 Conference matchup. Texas is 5-2 SU and 3-3-1 ATS in November the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 6-1 in that situation.
The Longhorns rank 35th in the country in allowing just 348.9 yards per game, which is important to consider when looking over the college football betting odds, especially when they’ve surrendered just 171.4 yards a contest through the air. Texas has managed to tally 11 interceptions this season after posing 10 all of 2013, as it ranks 58th in the FBS in turnover margin, while its opponent is 122nd in that all-important category.
Texas Tech is 1-5 SU and 3-3 ATS in its last six games, as it looks to rebound from a 82-27 blowout loss to the TCU Horned Frogs as 24.5-point road underdogs, as it was out-gained by 339 yards in that affair. The Red Raiders have suffered back-to-back defeats in this series when playing Lubbock, while they’ve fallen in five consecutive games overall versus the Longhorns. The team has received solid play from its offensive line, with the unit allowing just seven sacks in eight games. Teas Tech is 1-6 SU and 0-7 ATS in Weeks 10 through 13 the last two-plus seasons.
The Red Raiders have been very pleased with DeAndre Washington’s play in the backfield, as he’s gained 699 rushing yards on 125 attempts—most by a Texas Tech player through seven games of a season since 1998. Quarterback Davis Webb is still the most important player on the field offensively, as he’s registered 10 games of 300-plus passing yards in his career.
Sports bettors will likely back the Longhorns due to the Red Raiders being 0-8 ATS in November since the 2012 campaign.
