Texas Tech Red Raiders | Big 12


Conference Analysis
Win Conference (+5250)
SSA Model Pick: Conference (Low Confidence)
Kliff Kingsbury has never had a winning record in conference play in 5 seasons as Texas Tech head coach. This team was vastly improved on defense last year and does bring back 10 starters on that side of the ball, so things could be different. It’s unlikely that the Red Raiders will find themselves in the conference championship game, but stranger things have happened. At 52:1 to win the conference you might as well sprinkle a little change on Tech and see where things go.

Win Total Analysis
6 wins (-110/-110)
SSA Model Pick: None
Kliff Kingsbury must have the most stressful job in college football as he is perpetually on the hot seat. The Red Raider faithful must remember this isn’t a premier program and going 6-6 each season is better than going 3-9.
