Texas vs Texas Tech Prediction & Pick

Texas has dominated this in-state rivalry over the years. The Longhorns are 11-2 straight up in their last 13 games against Texas Tech and 6-0 straight up in their last six games played at Jones AT&T Stadium. There's a lot to like about their chances of keeping that streak going with another victory.

There's no denying that Robinson is the focal point of Texas' offense especially with quarterback Quinn Ewers sidelined with an injury. The junior is averaging an impressive 6.1 yards per carry on the season. Texas Tech has the rush defense to keep this game close, but it won't be enough in the end.

Final Score Prediction: Texas: 34 | Texas Tech: 24

Not only has Texas dominated this rivalry from a win/loss perspective, but it has also dominated from a betting perspective. The Longhorns are 9-3 against the spread (ATS) in their last 12 games against the Red Raiders and have won each of the last four head-to-head meetings by at least a touchdown.

The combination of an experienced head coach in Steve Sarkisian, an elite running back in Bijan Robinson and a capable quarterback in Hudson Card gives Texas a major leg up here. This game has the makings of a thriller that features Texas pulling away with a big second half performance.

Bet: Texas -6.5 (-110)
