Our NCAA Free Pick first utters a word of caution for the LSU Tigers and their boosters. Look at what happened to Texas when a legend was run out of town. These Longhorns have the upset in the year for what they did against Oklahoma and still have to win their final two games to get to be bowl eligible. So how will this up and down team do when they host the point a minute offense and defense that Texas Tech has? The Gambling Forum has your Free Pick to Plunder Thanksgiving with on this Big Twelve contest tonight at 7:30 PM.
NCAA Free Pick : Longhorn Dominance
Like a drum, that is how Texas has beat Tech over the years. Not since 2009 has the Longhorns missed a beat at the expense of TT. At home, dominion is even more entrenched as Tech has not won at Texas since 1997.. All that being said, Texas is without the services of their leading rushing who is out with a broken finger. At 6-5,3-5, Texas Tech averages close to 600 yards per game but give up almost as much. Burden in this game is for the Texas offense to keep pace.
Tech Rushing Attack
By far DeAndre Washington at running back for Texas Tech is the best player on the field. He shredded K-State for over two hundred yards on the ground and three touchdowns. This is great news as the Longhorns rushing defense is average at best. Patrick Mahomes for Tech is superior to anything that Texas can put out at the quarterback position. Longhorns have only seen nine touchdowns through the air by them the whole year.
Texas prides itself on their offensive line but will be stalemated by the ability of Tech to open rushing lanes. The spread has hovered around + 1 or so on the road team. HRWagers Free Pick for Thanksgiving is the Red Raiders of Texas Tech on the moneyline. Enjoy the offensive fireworks in this one and get more bankroll to boot. Good fortune my friends at HRWager and we will see you later today on this Thanksgiving Day.
