Texas Tech snapped a four-game losing streak in picking up a 34-21 victory over the Kansas Jayhawks as 12.5-point home favorites last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for a third consecutive contest.  The Red Raiders own a 30-23-3 SU all-time advantage in this series, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 9 college football predictions, as they’ve won both meetings in the series since the two schools became Big 12 Conference rivals.  Texas Tech is 7-6 SUATS on the road the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 9-4 in that situation.

The Red Raiders have done a great job in protecting signal-caller Davis Webb, which is important to consider when looking over the college football betting lines, as the offensive line ranks 10th nationally in surrendering just six sacks in seven affairs.  Webb ranks 10th in school history with 4,957 career passing yards, while he’s tied for seventh with 42 touchdown strikes.  Junior wide receiver Jakeem Grant has turned into the team’s main perimeter threat, as he ranks second in the Big 12 in averaging 152.3 all-purpose yards per game.

TCU bounced back from its first loss of the season in picking up a 42-9 victory over the Oklahoma State Cowboys as 10.5-point home favorites in Week 8, as it won the statistical battle by 417 yards.  The Horned Frogs have opened each game this season with a lead of at least 14-0, as they’ve managed to score a touchdown on the opening position in five of six affairs.  It’s important to point out that the program is 65-14 SU under head coach Gary Patterson when playing at Amon G. Carter Stadium.  TCU is 9-7 SU and 8-8 ATS at home the last two-plus seasons, with no clear edge in terms of the betting total (7-7 Over/Under).

The Horned Frogs are really rolling offensively under new co-coordinators Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meacham, as they possess the nation’s most improved offense in both total yards and scoring from a season ago.  TCU ranked fifth nationally in averaging 45.2 points per game, with signal-caller Trevone Boykin topping the conference in totaling 369.9 total yards per contest.

Sports bettors will likely back the Horned Frogs due to their current 8-0 ATS run.
