Texas Tech vs Oklahoma State NCAAF Week 4 Spread & Game Preview.

Texas Tech vs Oklahoma State NCAA Football Week 4 Game Preview

Written by on September 19, 2018

Every team in college football takes a different approach in terms of playing style. There are some that build a solid defense, while others go for an all-out attack style that very often ends with them being drawn into shootout style games. It’s always fun to see those different styles clash, but it’s perhaps even more exciting when you get two offensive-minded teams going head to head as we have this coming Saturday, when the Texas Tech Red Raiders go on the road to face the #15 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys. This is a match-up that always seems to deliver some offensive fireworks, which is not surprising when you look at the numbers these two routinely put up. Defense usually goes out the window when these two go head to head, with the average combined score of their last 10 meetings coming in at around 77 PPG. The Cowboys are in as a 13 ½ point favorite for this one, with the point total set at a rather unsurprising 78 points.

Why bet on the Texas Tech Red Raiders?

The Red Raiders had a tough start to the season, going up against a good looking Ole Miss team and coming out on the wrong end of a 47-27 final score. Things have gone a whole lot better since then, though, as they have won back to back games by a combined score of 133-49. The 49 points that they gave up in that stretch all came last week in a 63-49 win over Houston, which has to be a little concerning given how good the Cowboys offense is. The Red Raiders have only managed to pick up 1 win in their last 10 meetings with Oklahoma State, which includes being winless in their last 5 visits to Stillwater. They have had issues covering, too, going 4-9 ATS in their last 13 tilts with the Cowboys, although rather unsurprisingly, the OVER has hit in 5 of the last 6.

Why bet on the Oklahoma State Cowboys?

The Cowboys opened the season with a couple of punching bag games, which they won in typically convincing style. Their first real challenge of the season came in Week 3 when the Boise State Broncos came to town. The Broncos play a similar upbeat offensive brand of football, so the 44-21 win for the Cowboys has to be considered a very nice victory. Texas Tech vs Oklahoma State is scheduled for Saturday Night. The Cowboys are now on a 5-game winning streak, if you look back to last season, and they have covered the spread in 4 of those 5 games. It is their recent record against Texas Tech, which we mentioned a little earlier, that makes them such a heavy favorite here. The Cowboys come in ranked #15 and are looking to continue moving on up the ranks.
