The Texas Tech Red Raiders and Mississippi Rebels battle on Wednesday in this year’s Texas Bowl.
The Rebels had a terrible end to the season with a 1-4 straight-up record and three straight losses to cap things off. Can Lane Kiffin’s side get back on track and end the season with a win?
On the flip side, Texas Tech went on a three-game winning streak to end the season with victories over Kansas, Iowa State and Oklahoma.
With such a great matchup on tap, I wanted to search for a few of the best prop bets for the First Responders Bowl.
First Responders Bowl Prop Bets
- A Team to Score 3 Unanswered Times
- Game Total Points Range 71+ (+120)
Let’s check the latest college football odds, stats, injury reports, and college football lines for Texas Tech vs Ole Miss. We’ve plenty of NCAA football odds for you to consider.
A Team to Score 3 Unanswered Times
The odds suggest that it’s likely for one team to score three times unanswered. But with the spread at just 3½ points as of Tuesday, the bookies also suggest this will be a close game.
Do you know what close games don’t often feature? A team scoring three times in a row. More often than not, three straight unanswered scores lead to a big win by one side
Given how we are not expecting a big lead on either end, the value on this prop is fantastic at +275.
Pick: No +275
Game Total Points Range
We can refer back to my full-game preview of this game, where I suggest betting over a total of 71 points. The highest range for this wager is 71+, which gives us slightly better odds at the cost of one point. The total is O/U 71, meaning that a score of 71 would push. But, at 71+, this prop can win at 71 or above.
Both teams play at a red-hot pace and rank among the top teams in players per minute. With not a ton of defensive talent, we’re expecting a big score on Wednesday night.
Pick: 71+ (-105)
