The Texas Tech Red Raiders enter Thursday’s matchup with the Kansas Jayhawks with a 2-1 record. They’re a perfect 2-0 home at Jones AT&T Stadium and have covered the spread against both Stephen F. Austin and Louisiana Tech. The Red Raiders have had plenty of time to prepare for this game after Patrick Mahomes threw for 470 yards and five touchdowns in their 59-45 win against Louisiana Tech two weeks ago. Texas Tech is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games following a bye week and the program has averaged 679 yards per game overall this season, second only to Louisville.
The Kansas Jayhawks are 1-2 for the season and lost their lone road game 43-7 as a 20-point underdog at Memphis on September 17. They’re 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and the program has lost 17 straight FBS games, after going 0-12 last season. In their last loss at Memphis, the Jayhawks fumbled the ball four times and had two interceptions, so the team needs to hold onto the ball better as Texas Tech has proven itself to be extremely effective so far.
