Kansas season win total backers continue to ride the roller coaster through the first 4 weeks of the season.
Kansas will try to cash the Over 1.5 wins here with an upset win over Texas Tech on the road Thursday night.
The Jayhawks season win total sits at 1.5 and after their season opening win against Rhode Island, Kansas had a chance to become the first team to clinch their win total.
However, the Jayhawks have dropped back to back games in less than stellar fashion as they were knocked around by Ohio and Memphis.
With Big 12 play starting this week and the Jayhawks expected to be massive underdogs in every game, the road looks foggy.
For them to have any chance here, they’ll have to rely heavily on their defense to somehow slow down the Red Raiders. The interesting portion of this matchup will be the pass attack versus secondary.
Texas Tech will whip the ball all over the field. Kansas sits 5th in the nation against the pass, allowing just 135 yards per game.
However, scoring is going to be an issue. Kansas has managed just 27.7 points per game and while that is high for this offense, it’s not even close to being enough when it comes to playing Texas Tech.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Red Raiders offense has been one of the most impressive in the nation and they could be in store for another big outing here on Thursday night.
Texas Tech has averaged 61 points per game, which ranks 2nd in the nation. They’ve averaged 688 yards per game with 548 of those coming through the air.
Prior to the bye week, the Red Raiders put up 59 points on Louisiana Tech, but allowed 45 which is something that has become a norm with this program.
Texas Tech has allowed 43.3 points per game and ranks near the bottom in almost every defensive category as they’ve given up the 45 points to LT and have a 68 spot under their belt against the ASU offense.
This week will be a chance for the Red Raiders defense to maybe find themselves some rhythm.
The Red Raiders get a chance at an offense that has no explosive play making ability and doesn’t take many shots down field.
