Baylor’s Big 12 Title Bid Continues Against Struggling Texas Tech

Posted by Blake Frazier on 2/4/2014 5:47:26 AM

The No. 6 Baylor Bears continued to roll with another dominant online sports betting win over the Oklahoma Sooners in another important Big 12 showdown last week. With four games left on their regular season schedule, they are very much in control of their own destiny. Baylor will look to extend its undefeated run to nine-straight games when it tries to stay perfect against the Texas Tech Red Raiders this Saturday night. The top-ranked offense in the country has averaged 61 points so far this year, and there is little reason to think they will slow down as massive favorites this week against a Texas Tech defense that has allowed an average of more than 45 points over three-straight losses.

College Football Sports Betting Line: Baylor – 26.5

The Red Raiders have slipped to No. 25 in the nation after dropping three-straight, eliminating them from a chance to challenge for a Big 12 title. The Bears’ hopes are still very much alive, but they can’t afford to look too far ahead to games against No. 12 Oklahoma State and No. 24 Texas to close out their regular season schedule.

College Football Betting Preview: Texas Tech

It has certainly been a devastating fall for Texas Tech this year, as they gave up a ridiculous 291 rushing yards in another blowout loss at the hands of Kansas State last weekend. The Red Raiders have had no answers for opposition ground games even when they know what is coming, and that will be a big problem heading in to this match up against the ninth-ranked rushing attack in the country. Freshman quarterback Baker Mayfield struggled in his return, averaging just 6.3 yards per completion with two interceptions, and his only touchdown came when he ran it in from four yards out. The Texas Tech defense will struggle to slow down the Baylor offense, so it will be on a stumbling offense to try and keep them in the game.

The Bears have no shortage of weapons to attack with, as third-string running back Shock Linwood ran for 182 yards on 23 carries when called upon in last week’s win over Oklahoma. Baylor totaled 255 yards on the ground in the victory, and there is little reason to think they will face any more resistance this week against the Red Raiders. Junior quarterback Bryce Petty continued to play at a high level with three more touchdowns against the Sooners, bringing his season total to 21 compared to just a single interception. The balance the Bears’ offense plays with makes them difficult enough to slow down, and they are that much more dangerous when they don’t turn the ball over.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

At first glance it seems like the 26.5-point online betting number is a little high, but when you consider what Baylor has done to this point in the year it’s very difficult to make an argument against it. The Bears have the weapons to make Texas Tech pay on the ground and through the air, and the struggling Red Raiders have offered little reason for college football fans to think they can survive the looming onslaught they will face on the road this week as Baylor looks to move one step closer to completing its Big 12 title bid.
