Texas Tech is 7-1 against Kansas since October 2015 and has a chance to extend that success on Saturday. The Texas Tech Red Raiders will hit the road to take on the Kansas Jayhawks at Kivisto Field at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium at 12:00 p.m. ET. Texas Tech is expected to lose this game by 3.5 points, so we’ll see if that gives them a little motivation.

Both teams in Saturday’s game not only won their last games, they also took care of their bettors and covered the spread. Going forward, Kansas is the favorite as experts expect them to win by 3.5 points. They could be worth a quick bet as they have been able to cover the spread in home games for four games now.
Texas Tech beat Kansas 43-28 in its last game in November 2022. The rematch could be a little more difficult for Texas Tech as the team will not have the home field advantage this time. We’ll see if the change of venue makes a difference.
