The Longhorns could have played for the national championship last season but they were upset on the college football betting line by the Red Raiders. That should not be the outcome this time as Texas is a big favorite in NCAA football odds at the online sportsbook.
NCAA football odds have Texas an 18-point favorite at home on Saturday night in a game that can be seen on ABC. Both teams come into this online betting matchup unbeaten but the Longhorns are the superior team this year. While most people believe this is a revenge game for Texas their head coach Mack Brown is not one of them. "Some people use it but it's not my personality. Revenge is fine if that helps. We tell the players to figure out what turns you on, what excites you. We don't care," Brown said.
Texas Tech is 2-0 this season but looks far weaker than they were last year when they had a lot of talent. They warmed up for this week’s game with a 55-10 victory over Rice last week. Taylor Pots was 36-of-57 for 456 yards.
Texas has owned Texas Tech at home going 27-5 including all five under head coach Mack Brown. They have outscored the Red Raiders by an average of 51-23 since 1999.
Many of the NCAA football odds trends are against Texas Tech in this game. The Red Raiders are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games on grass. The Red Raiders are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as a road underdog. The one thing in their favor in NCAA football odds is that the Longhorns are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Red Raiders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Texas and the home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in the college football betting line series.
It should be a high scoring game in NCAA football odds. The last four Texas Tech games on the road have all gone over the college football betting line total. Seven of the last eight Texas Tech games overall have gone over the college football betting line. Eight of the last 11 conference games for Texas have gone over the NCAA football odds. Six of the last seven meetings between the two teams have gone over the online sportsbook total.
