Sam Houston State Bearkats vs Texas Tech Red Raiders prediction

The Texas Tech Red Raiders are just 4-7 ATS on the season, so I’m not excited to lay these sorts of numbers, but they’re far and away the more talented side and at home. The Sam Houston State Bearkats have lost to every decent team they’ve played this season, and they shoot under 40 percent on the year. That’s not going to improve against this Texas Tech defense. It’s Texas Tech or pass for me.
