Kansas and Texas Tech both are two teams that you are not going to see competing for a conference title in 2019. That doesn’t mean that this is not going to be a great matchup come Saturday. Texas Tech features its high powered air raid offense still even with coaching changes. Meanwhile, Kansas has a first-year head coach in Les Miles that is trying to change the direction of the program.
Kansas and Texas Tech both should put up a ton of points on Saturday with both offenses playing well. On top of the high powered offenses, both defenses have struggled on their own.
Kansas has only won one game at home this year, struggling to get the home crowd something to cheer about. We will see if Texas Tech can keep those home woes alive.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Texas Tech is on a two-game losing streak and has lost the last four of five. After coming out of the gates hot, the Red Raiders have fallen far out of Big 12 contention. The Red Raiders have given up almost 30 points a game this season and have struggled for the most part on the defensive end.
Even with their woes on defense, the Red Raider offense has produced great numbers with over 470 yards a game on average. With all those yards, the Red Raiders have not put up the points you would expect. 30 points a game is still average, but the Red Raiders will need to be better in the red zone on the road.
Texas Tech has switched quarterbacks for the first couple of games, but Jeff Duffey should get the nod on Saturday.
Kansas has surprised people with the arrival of Les Miles coming to Lawrence. The Jayhawks have still only won two games in the past seven in 2019, but show great promise as they progress through the year. Last week, Kansas put up 48 points against Texas and just fell short in overtime.
With great strides being taken a week to week, the Jayhawks host a Texas Tech team that they are poised to match up against. After being underdogs in each of their games this year except two FCS teams, the Jayhawks could cover once again.
We should see the Jayhawks quarterback Carter Stanley use both his arm and his leg trying to get past the Red Raiders. Look for Stanely to run this offense with a great arm that could take shots down the field.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
Kansas is just 4.5 point underdogs at home this weekend. With a past like the Jayhawks, this is just as good as a pick em’ for a team that hasn’t won very many games in recent history. After their performance last week against Texas, expect that Jayhawks to get better in week 9 and take this game outright.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Kansas +4.5.
Kansas should be able to take this game outright with their offense playing as well as they are. The defense was tested last week against a Texas offense that is one of the best in the Big 12. Texas Tech should be a worthy opponent but one that is not as talented as the Jayhawk’s previous opponent.
Look for the Jayhawks to get back on track this weekend and get a home win for the first time since August.
