Texas Tech vs Texas Final Betting Analysis

Although Texas’ season is disappointing, the Longhorns will get a bowl bid. Texas won’t play in a New Year’s Day Six Bowl. They will get to play in the postseason.

While the Longhorns have another game after this, Texas Tech’s season ends on Friday. That should motivate the Red Raiders. The road team made decent strides towards the end of the season. They hung with some of the best teams in the Big 12. Texas has no real advantage on the field over Texas Tech, which means the Red Raiders could pull off the moneyline upset. Take the points for sure.
