Houston +130 over Texas Tech
Jones AT&T Stadium and Cody Campbell Field – Lubbock, TX
Streaming: Fox Sports 1
4:00 PM EST. Last week, a then #24 ranked Houston Cougars survived UTSA in triple-overtime and failed to cover as a -3½-point choice. This deflated any market prowess that H-Town held coming into this game but even if the Cougars had been successful and retained their ranking which was abolished (despite winning the game), Texas Tech would still have tremendous curb appeal.
You see, the Red Raiders have owned the Cougars. You’ll hear about that from lots of pundits. They eat that crap up. Texas Tech has won the last four meetings in this series and they have covered the spread in all four. To summarize, Houston has not won or covered since 2009. While we place no merit in such narratives, recency bias is a real thing and it is in play here to be sure.
Houston +130 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 2.60)
