Texas Tech vs. Houston Betting Odds

Texas Tech vs. Houston betting odds were set at even for this late night Saturday bout.  Odds were available at Sportsbook.com.  Close to 75 percent of the action was going towards Texas Tech.

CFB: Texas Tech at Houston (9:15 PM ET, ESPN2)

If you still have the itch for more college football after a full afternoon and evening on Saturday, ESPN2 and Sportsbook.com have a treat for you, starting at 9:15 PM ET. It's an old-fashioned Texas-style shootout between Texas Tech and Houston in what could be the most fun game of the day. Word has it the score is already 17-13 and they haven't kicked off yet. Could be a nice game to back OVER the total of 73.5.

It's back to work for Houston after a bye week, enjoying the adulation of knocking of then No.5 Oklahoma State on their home field 45-35. They will try and knock off another Big 12 team, Texas Tech, this time at home. Being 3-0 with two wins over Big 12 teams will have Houston and Conference USA being mentioned as a BCS bowl-crasher this season. Coach Kevin Sumlin has taken what Art Briles started and improved it. The Cougars are ranked for the first time in 18 years and there is a lot of excitement about triggerman Case Keenum. With all the praise, coach Sumlin's toughest job might be refocusing his team; not playing Texas Tech. Houston is 15-25 ATS in non-conference play since 2000.

Texas Tech comes off the Texas revenge game and played better than expected in a 34-24 defeat but pointspread cover. With the playing surface less an issue today for the sports bettor than before, Texas Tech is a curious 10-22 SU and ATS in regular season games on natural grass.

As Mississippi proved Thursday night, playing with expectations can be a stifling experience and this is what Houston has tonight. With a win over Okie State, Houston is 10-5 ATS versus BCS schools since 2001, but 0-9 ATS after two or more consecutive straight up wins over the last three seasons. Coach Leach is one of the best bounce back coaches in the game off a loss; with his team 25-12 ATS in the next effort. The total is a vexing figure with Texas Tech 27-9 OVER off a cover and the Cougars 8-2 UNDER after a bye week.

The StatFox Power Line says Texas Tech by 2. The Sportsbook.com actual line shows a pick em'. Hmmm???
