Two teams from the Big 12 will be facing off when the Texas Tech Red Raiders take on the Baylor Bears.
Texas Tech is coming off of a loss and Baylor is coming off of a win.
Baylor started off as a 15 point favorite and that number is now down to 14.5. I am seeing most totals listed at 52, but there are some that show 51.5.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Texas Tech has not had a great season, but they have been solid. It is good to see that this program is eligible for a bowl.
The Red Raiders lost to the Oklahoma State Cowboys last Saturday by a score of 23-0. I get that they have a very good defense, but you cannot get shut out at home by them.
Donovan Smith did not look good at all in the loss last week. He finished the day 9/29 for only 83 yards. Needless to say, he will need to be a lot better when he goes against the Bears on Saturday.
There was nothing positive to note about this offense in their last game. Things will not get any easier when they face a very tough defense in the Bears.
The defense has been an area of concern for this team so far this year, but I did feel it looked a little better when they went against Oklahoma State. If they were really struggling, they would have given up more than 23 points to them.
Baylor has had a very impressive season this year. No matter what happens, they will play in a good bowl game.
The Bears went on the road and beat Kansas State on Saturday by a score of 20-10. I am sure they would have liked to score more than that, but a win is a win.
Gerry Bohanon was 9/14 for 76 yards with 1 touchdown pass in the win. Blake Shapen was 16/21 for 137 yards.
Kansas State did a good job of keeping Abram Smith and the running game in check. That was a little surprising for me. Tyquan Thornton was the leading receiver with 5 receptions for 75 yards.
Their defense continues to play at a high level. I would expect them to have a solid day when they go against the Red Raiders.

4* Free Week 13 NCAA Betting Pick:
Baylor is the better team here and I do expect them to win the game. I am just not sold on them covering the number.
Look, the Red Raiders played a terrible game last week, but I expect them to come out stronger in this one. I would be very surprised if they had another game as they had against Oklahoma State.
Ultimately, I do not have enough confidence in the defense for Texas Tech for me to pick them to win, but I do feel the offense can score some points to keep them in it.
I will play the Red Raiders getting 14.5 on the road here.
