Texas Tech Finished Strong

The Red Raiders had a very up-and-down season, with several back-to-back losses and one three-game winning streak. The good news is that the three-game winning streak is still alive as Texas Tech heads into Dallas for this game.

From a betting standpoint, things are going great in Texas, with the Red Raiders holding a 3-0 win streak against the spread as well with wins over Kansas, Iowa State and Oklahoma. The team ended the regular season 5-2 ATS. As underdogs, as they are here, the Rebels are 4-3 ATS with a cover rate of 57.1%.

There is one potentially big issue for Texas Tech in the form of injured quarterback Behren Morton making his return to action for the first time since Nov .15. But, backup QB Donovan Smith led the team to three straight wins in Morton’s absence and already has more passing yards (1,505).

Ole Miss 0-3 to End Season

It’s hard to believe that this is the same Ole Miss team that was ranked in the top 10 at one point not too long ago. The Rebels were on track to potentially win the Southeastern Conference and head into the offseason as heroes.

Then, the wheels fell off and Ole Miss finished the season 1-4 straight up and 1-5 against the spread. Their last ATS win was on Nov. 12 against Alabama as 11-point underdogs.

However, there is some good news for Ole Miss as its injury report is basically empty. Tight end Michael Trigg remains out after breaking his collarbone, while kicker Caden Costa is questionable in the first week he is eligible to play since being suspended last season for using banned substances. That is it, so the Rebels will be nearly at full strength heading into Wednesday.

Texas Tech vs Ole Miss Picks & Prediction

This is a tough call, and I want to avoid picking a side to win or lose here.

However, both teams rank in the top 15 in terms of plays per minute, so expect a lot of points to be scored here.

With that in mind, I want to recommend taking the over 71 as my best bet. It’s a big number, but well attainable by these two offenses. All five career meetings between the teams went over.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders are listed at +148 in our Vegas NCAAF lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Texas Tech, you have a chance to win $148. The Ole Miss Rebels are -170, offering a chance to win $59 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Texas Tech a 40.32% chance to win, with Ole Miss at 62.96%.
