College Football Betting Preview
Texas Tech (7-0) at Kansas (5-2)
Saturday, 12:00 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Texas Tech – 1.5 , Total 65.5
Texas Tech is off to their best start in more than 30 years but many people believe it is more due to their schedule than to their talent. The Red Raiders will get a chance to prove those people wrong, beginning on Saturday as they travel to face #19 Kansas. Texas Tech is ranked 8th in the country and after facing Kansas will play Texas, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. That is a gauntlet no team would want to face. SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Texas Tech on the Road.
“We understand that our best is good enough to beat everyone in the country, but the kicker is making sure that our best is what’s out there every Saturday,” offensive lineman Rylan Reed said. “We’ve got the talent, the experience, the coaching. We’ve got everything in place that we need to be in place. Now it’s just going out there and getting it done.” Texas Tech has won 9 of the 10 matchups all-time against Kansas.
The Jayhawks are coming off a loss to Oklahoma last week even though they scored 31 points. “A loss is always disappointing, regardless of how it happens,” safety Darrell Stuckey said. “We just have to be optimistic about it and realize that … we are going to be able to learn (from it). You learn more from a loss than you do from a win.”
