    Seen some of Tech NONE of Texas
    Seems the line says it all. Number 8 ranked team at 13-1 getting points against 10-5 unranked team. Doesn't always work out that way. More often than not probably. People always seem to track unranked favorites vs ranked. And since all they have to do is win seems eve better
    Would like opinions as I can't play based on a line alone and not seeing really any of Texas

    Texas Tech is a great defensive team but inconsistent on offense. Texas isn’t a great offensive team either so I’ll either take my chances on Tech or pass. Good luck

    The obvious play would be the #8 team +1 against a none ranked team

    So you didn't take TEMPLE this past Wednesday? Same type scenario. Not that it hits every time but your much better taking the unranked at home FAV to cover. It's a tried and true 'angle'. Again not full proof but home court, fans and unranked being extra motivated w/ a ranked opponent coming in and focus a little more dialed in, PLUS Vegas giving you who they think FAV/Winner is based on line. Just food for thought or help in deciding a side. I'm sure in a few hours we'll see which side was right. IOWA is another game to consider ;)

    Exactly. Isn’t 100% but they only missed by 1 bucket. Win by 3 while line 5. Close but still a win at home vs ranked even though they were unranked

    good luck either way
