Texas Tech at Houston
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener: Houston -5.5 O/U 69
CRIS Current: Houston -6.5 O/U 71
Recommendation: Over

Texas Tech’s offense once again looks fully capable of scoring points in bunches despite losing quarterback and 1st round draft pick Patrick Mahomes. Texas Tech’s new starter, Nic Shimonek, is the latest in a long line of plug-and-play Air Raid system signal callers. Shimonek has absolutely flawless numbers through two games; 78% completions, 927 yards passing and a perfect 9-0 TD-to-INT ratio. He’s got a slew of skill position talent to work with; WR Keke Coutee has 17 catches for 285 yards and three scores while fellow receivers Dylan Cantrell and Cameron Batson each have 12 receptions. And running backs Desmon Nisby and Justin Stockton have combined for 196 yards and 2 TDs. I expect Tech to score its share of points but so should Houston against a Texas Tech defense that still refuses to put any stock into stopping the opposition. Case in point, last week, up 42-24 in the third quarter, the Red Raiders allowed Arizona State to storm back and tie the game late. Tech punched in a score with less than two minutes remaining and was perhap lucky to come away with the win and pointspread cover.

Texas A&M transfer Kyle Allen has started off strong for Houston with 534 passing yards and an 86% completion rate through two games. Houston has a trio of senior receivers with Linell Bonner, Steven Dunbar and John Leday who all have double-digit receptions so far on the campaign. It will be a massive challenge for a Texas Tech secondary giving up over 7 yards per pass and 273 passing yards per game. Last week’s game between Texas Tech and Arizona State was lined at 74 and it soared over with 97 points scored. This total is three points lower due in large part to Houston’s ability to play solid defense but it still won’t stop either team from marching up and down the field. Play it over.
