The Red Raiders are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Cardinals last 7 overall. The over is 4-0 in Cardinals last 4 road games. The under is 7-1 in Red Raiders last 8 overall.

The Incarnate Word Cardinals have clear issues and don't have the talent or the depth to put up a real fight against Texas Tech. However, the Texas Tech Red Raiders haven't had much covering success as of late, and they've had a week off due to holiday break. Texas Tech also has the Big 12 schedule on deck, so it's easy to overlook this contest and do just enough what it takes to win. Lot of points here. It's Incarnate Word and the points or pass for me.
