Teams: Kansas Jayhawks vs Texas Tech Red Raiders
Sean Murphy recommends a play on Texas Tech -28½ -100 at pinnacle
Texas Tech will undoubtedly be eager to get after it defensively in this one as they face a manageable matchup after giving up a boatload of points against Arizona State and Louisiana Tech in its last two games – a whopping 113 points to be exact.
Kansas has just one win to its credit this season, that coming in its opener against FCS squad Rhode Island. Since that win, the Jayhawks have been outscored 80-28 in losses to Ohio and Memphis. Staying on the road for the second consecutive game, this is by no means a favorable matchup.
The Jayhawks know that in order to win this game, they’re likely going to have to find the end zone on virtually every drive. That’s obviously just not a feasible gameplan for a squad that lacks explosive personnel on offense.
Again, the x-factor here will be the Red Raiders defense. Texas Tech is below average in that department but I’m not convinced Kansas can take advantage of that weakness.
Look for the Red Raiders to get off to a fast start and never let their foot off the gas as they ultimately pull away for a blowout victory. Take Texas Tech (8*).
