A lot of the times in college football when you have teams playing each other and essentially beating each other up, it’s because the teams really aren’t that good.
In the Big 12, this are some pretty good teams and this is just how deep the conference is. And more often then not they prove that when it comes to bowl season.
Anyway, the point of that is the fact that both Baylor and Texas Tech need wins to become bowl eligible.
Also, having said what I said at the beginning it’s also true that these teams are the highest of class, but considering that these are the 8th and 9th best teams in the Big 12 says a lot.
I think these two teams would beat the likes of Tennessee and Vanderbilt; Minnesota and Indiana teams that reside near the bottom of their respective conferences.
After last year’s dumpster fire, Baylor has actually rebounded and had a pretty solid year. They could have become bowl eligible with a win last week at home, but fell to TCU.
Now, they’ll have to go on the road and defeat Texas Tech.
Statistically, Baylor is a highly touted offense, but they really haven’t put up the points of late. They’ve gone 1-4 in their last five games and save for the sandwiched game against Oklahoma State where they put up 35 points they’ve only averaged 13.5 points per game.
That won’t get the job done against a team like the Red Raiders in Lubbock.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
I think one of the head scratchers last week was the fact that Texas Tech only put up six points last week.
Well, it didn’t help that they had the ball for only 22 minutes. Kansas State just pounded the ball and kept the Red Raiders offense on the sideline. And when the Red Raiders did have the ball, they didn’t take advantage of it.
Jett Duffey only threw for 150 yards and didn’t have the ability to run around the place on the Kansas State defense. Also, he got hurt late in the game McLane Carter didn’t have much success in his very limited time playing.
Texas Tech has been in a tail spin losing their last four games and with all the injuries it’s going to be a tough one against Baylor.

It’s tough to say how this game is going to go with all the injuries and question marks in this one.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Baylor +6.5
Usually, in a spot like this I’d take the home team like the explosive Red Raiders, but with all the hoopla surrounding the team I’ll take Baylor to cover in this spot.
Their defense has been pretty legit over the last few games and with all the injuries on the offensive side of the ball, Texas Tech could potentially struggle in this one.
You wouldn’t expect it, but this might be a close, low scoring game. Watch out for this one.
