Alamo Bowl Betting odds for Michigan State vs. Texas Tech opened at -7 in favor of Texas Tech.  The line has only moved a half point to -7 ½ at SBG Global despite all the controversy surrounding Tech coach Mike Leach. 

This one goes off Saturday, 9:00 pm Eastern - ESPN

The story for the Alamo Bowl has been off the field and it came to a head on Wednesday as Texas Tech fired head coach Mike Leach.  The question on the field will be how Texas Tech responds to losing their head coach.  They are still a favored by a touchdown on Saturday as they play Michigan State.

There is really no way to tell how Texas Tech will play in this game under interim head coach Ruffin McNeill who is the team's defensive coordinator. McNeill has made it clear he wants the job on a permanent basis so the players might decide to play for him on Saturday.

There should be a lot of scoring in the Alamo Bowl Odds since both teams like to throw the ball.  Michigan State threw for 271.2 yards per game this season as they scored 29.6 points per game.  Kirk Cousins took the job at quarterback and finished the regular season with 2,460 yards and 18 touchdowns. Blair White led the team with 64 catches for 876 yards and eight scores.

Texas Tech was second in the nation in passing yards per game at 380.7.  They averaged 36.7 points per game this season and Taylor Potts threw for 3,068 yards and 20 TDs. Alex Torres is the leading receiver with 65 catches for 791 yards and six TDs.

Neither Michigan State nor Texas Tech plays a lot of defense but at least the Red Raiders show up. Michigan State was weak, allowing 251.6 yards per game through the air and 29 touchdowns. The one thing they can do is rush the passer as they had 34 sacks this season led by Greg Jones. Texas Tech allowed 21.8 points per game this season.  They were not that great against the pass though, allowing 223.8 yards per game.

Texas Tech has won six of their last eight games overall while Michigan State lost three of their last five games. Michigan State has lost their last three bowl games including 24-12 to Georgia last year.  The Spartans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. the Big 12. The Spartans are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog.

Some important Alamo Bowl Betting odds trends include:  The Red Raiders are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 college football betting bowl games. The Red Raiders are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. the Big Ten.

The Over is 4-0 in the Spartans last 4 games overall. The Over is 4-1 in Red the Raiders last 5 Bowl games.
